Asked what punishment a person might face, Police Commissioner Grant Stevens said there was “no punishment” for lying to law enforcement under the current law, although that could not be reviewed.
The six-day severe deportation of South Australian coronavirus caused by “false” contact with people following the tracks of a man who was tested for health and borders across the country is expected to be removed sooner than planned, authorities said on Friday.
The shocking announcement came just two days after the country’s government ordered people to stay home and shut down many businesses to fight the so-called outbreak of the highly contagious coronavirus.
South Australian Premier Steven Marshall told a news conference in Adelaide that one pizza bar man arrested in a riot told contact vendors to buy pizza only there, when he actually worked several shifts at a restaurant and another job that tested positive.
Authorities believe that the man, whose name has not been released, contracted the virus in a very short time, leading them to believe that the disease must have been highly contagious.
“Their (man’s) story did not cover. We followed them. Now we know they are lying, “Marshall told reporters.
“Saying that I am angry with this person is an understatement. These selfish actions have put our whole situation in jeopardy. ”
While the outbreak is still worrying, Marshall said the restrictions would be lifted early with a stay-at-home order ending at midnight on Saturday when more businesses would be allowed to open.
Asked what punishment a person might face, Police Commissioner Grant Stevens said there was “no punishment” for lying to law enforcement under the current law, although that could not be reviewed. Hardships are not forgotten by us. ”
Stevens said the team reviewing the information provided by the man to find the tracers was not satisfied with “the feeling they got from this”. Stevens would not be swayed by a man’s motivation that could lead to the tendency of social media.
