Victoria Police are “working hard” to locate the woman who seemed to have declined to tell police where she was going at a checkpoint for a Melbourne car.
The woman, identified as Eve Black, seemed to boast in a video she posted to Facebook about missing one of the police roadblocks-but it has since been taken down-where she seemed to hesitate to give the officer specifics of where she was going.
Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews said today that he suspected the woman would be fined even though he couldn’t give more information about the “well publicised” case.
“Victoria Police have that matter in hand, though. They are working hard to find that person,” Mr Andrews said.
“And that person will either have a lawful reason to be in regional Victoria or that person won’t, and if they don’t, then Victoria Police, I am confident, will fine them. Ultimately it is not too much to ask.”
Ms Black has since deleted the majority of posts from her Facebook page, except one where she said she had “no regrets”.
Mr Andrews said people not doing the right thing are making “selfish choices”.
“They are not even in the interests of the people themselves, because it will just mean these rules and this sort of conflict, which is completely unnecessary, by the way, but these rules will be in place longer if people continue to behave that way,” Mr Andrews said.
