Brisbane: Dutton roof protesters cop $100 fines

Protesters who climbed onto the awning of Immigration Minister Peter Dutton's office have been fined.
21 Nov – Three women who reportedly cost taxpayers thousands of dollars by protesting on the roof of Immigration Minister Peter Dutton’s electoral office in Brisbane have been fined $100 each.

The trio scaled the roof of Mr Dutton’s office in Strathpine on November 2 to protest against the Coalition government’s proposed life-time ban on refugees arriving by boat.

Mr Dutton claimed at the time that police and emergency services would have spent $10,000 worth of resources “trying to get these idiots down from my roof”.
