Melbourne: Man ARRESTED with 7-yr-old child for not wearing mask

A father was arrested, cuffed and dragged away with his 7-yr-old child in Melbourne for not wearing a mask.

Tony Pecora, who is one of the plaintiffs in our Supreme Court challenge on Monday, did not join the protest in Melbourne today.

Instead, Mr Pecora stood back with his child and filmed from afar. But that didn't stop police from grabbing Tony for "not complying with the Chief Health Officer's directives while on bail".

Police refused to accept Tony's medical exemption and detained him and his child for the alleged offence.

I was asked to take the child, but the police refused to allow it.

There was only one new Coronavirus case recorded in the state of Victoria today.
