The Supreme Court has formalised orders agreed out of court by both Adani and Ben Pennings in relation to a decision handed down on 25 June 2021.

Police arrested and charged two men on Friday over a spate of alleged aggravated break and enters in the northern rivers.

About 4.50am, police attempted to stop a green Holden Commodore on Rock Valley Road, Lismore.

A pursuit was initiated after the male driver allegedly ignored police directions to stop; however, it was suspended a short time later due to the alleged dangerous manner of driving.

Casino police later sighted the vehicle on Bentley Road, Kyogle and the pursuit was resumed.

A short time later the two male occupants were arrested and taken to Lismore police station.

An 18-year-old man was charged with three counts of aggravated break and enter, never-licensed person drive vehicle on road, two counts of police pursuit, use unregistered motor vehicle, use uninsured motor vehicle and breach of bail.

A 20-year-old man was charged with three counts of aggravated break and enter.
