David Eastman has managed to avoid his judicial inquiry since last year by sacking his legal council. Earlier this month his attempts to have Justin Kevin Duggan, the head of the inquiry sacked were thrown out.
It seems he is running out of stalling tactics.
So Eastman has allegedly staged a dirty protest.
A dirty protest is a protest where you use your own poo.

Reportedly Eastman has covered himself in his excrement, wearing his feces like justice proof armour.
It is understood that Eastman, who is regarded by correctional authorities as a management challenge, has used this form of protest before in response to changes in his jail routine.
After a previous “bronzing up” incident Eastman was told he would be fined by prison management, to which he allegedly responded: “I will run out of money before I run out of sh*t”.
A spokesman for the ACT’s Justice and Community Safety directorate (JACS) said it did not discuss “the individual circumstances of detainees”.
“If a detainee wishes to raise any concerns whilst in custody, we encourage them to express these through the existing complaints management process, which includes access to various statutory authorities, such as the Official Visitor and the Human Rights Commission,” the spokesman said.
