Canberra : Australia’s Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce has been fined 200 Australian dollars (US$151) for not wearing a face mask inside a petrol station in the state of New South Wales. The leader of Australia’s National Party, Joyce, also confirmed the incident of violation of coronavirus restrictions.
Joyce told Sky News Australia on Tuesday, ‘I went to the Caltex service station. I was on my way to the airport, refueled the car, went in 30 seconds later, then I had to pay a $200 fine because I was not wearing a mask.
Police had received information
NSW police said he was called to a petrol station by a member of the public and after reviewing security camera footage issued a fine to a 54-year-old male. “The man was apologetic and helped the police to be firm and impartial,” Deputy Commissioner Gary Warby told reporters. The police are deployed 24/7 across the state and they will take action and of course the Armidale incident is clear evidence that the police will investigate and take action.
The governing coalition government in Australia is formed by the Liberal Party and the National Party, with the latter serving as deputy prime minister. Joyce previously served as deputy prime minister from 2016 to 2018, when she resigned following allegations of sexual harassment, but she vehemently denied that allegation.
