Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has been summoned to appear before a criminal court on a charge of concealing treason was successfully filed with a court.
The charge was successfully filed with the Myrtleford Magistrates’ Court and Mr Andrews – or at least his legal representative – is listed to face the court on Friday at 9.30am.
While the prosecuting agency on the court record is listed as ‘unknown’, it is understood anti-lockdown campaigners Jim Rech and photographer Dezi Freeman had the matter listed privately.
Sources have told Daily Mail Australia the private prosecution had been rejected from several Victorian courts before finally being put into the criminal justice stream in Myrtleford – 280 km northeast of Melbourne.
Addressing ‘freedom’ protesters last month, Mr Rech claimed to have been successful in having the matter brought before the court, but it had since been suppressed to the general public.
Mr Rech, who refers to himself as a ‘Commonwealth Public Official’ is known to have tried similar proceedings against other members of parliament across the country, reportedly arresting ‘those sitting on the bench without any Crown authority’.
Daily Mail Australia noted the matter is in fact listed on the court’s Electronic Filing Appearance System, which is accessible to the wider community.
