So the Echo is now printing who got an AVO on them. A friend in a break up recently had one put on him, mostly because it is easy to do whether there is truth to it or not.

I suggest it would be more prudent of the Echo to stay out of these matters even if they can score cheap political battles with a developer they don’t agree with. Hope this isn’t defamatory or you wont print it.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.

  1. As someone who has been on the receiving end of verbal abuse and threats of physical violence from a greedy, aggressive developer, with only financial gain on their mind, I am happy to see reports such as this. The public has a right know what sort of people they are dealing with when they oppose a development, or any proposal (Festivals etc.).
    The Echo has a Court reporter, just like most News Papers, whose job it is to report assaults, drug busts or any other case before the Court. Any regular reader of the Echo would know that they (The Echo) do just that.
    After reading this Court report, it seems to be a particularly serious matter that shouldn’t be brushed under the carpet. Violence of any kind should not be tolerated.
