This article caught my eye this morning. Contempt of court obviously isn’t enforced.
FOR the safety of the magistrate and court officers, a bail hearing at the ACT Magistrates Court was held in a loading garage beneath the building beside a van in which the accused was locked.
Kirsty McGukin was granted bail on Friday but not released after she wrote ”F— you” on an undertaking to abide by bail conditions instead of signing her name.
Corrections officers sought to escort her to court on Saturday morning but Ms McGukin refused to leave the van and became violent.
