Anti-violence campaigner charged with violence

The Herald reports:

X Factor winner has been charged with assaulting a woman, just days after performing at an anti-violence breakfast.

The 22-year-old appeared in the Hamilton District Court today on five charges – three for breaching a protection order and two for male assaults female, reported Fairfax.

He pleaded not guilty to all charges. …

Monga and his father were guest speaker’s at a breakfast for anti-violence charity White Ribbon Day in Hamilton on November 25.

So almost certainly he already have a protection order against him when he spoke at the breakfast.

Would be a good idea for organisers of such events to ask guest speakers some basic questions such as are you the subject of a protection order.
