The Herald reports:
Meanwhile, New Zealand Police said they would not charge for providing policing for public safety.
Southern has been hit with a $A68,000 ($NZ74,000) bill by Victorian police for protecting her Melbourne event tonight.
Yes the Victorian Police are charging the people they have to protect, rather than the protesters threatening then. It is a horrible decision that provides perverse incentives.
The more you threaten a speaker you don’t like, the more money it will cost them to speak.
So pleased to see the NZ Police stick to a principled approach.
