Victoria Police Minister Lisa Neville says protests seen in Melbourne in recent days are a “real slap in the face” to others who are doing it trough in lockdown.
“It’s a real slap in the face to the Victorian community who have been doing it very tough,” she said.
“We all want these restrictions to be over, and what we saw yesterday were people that were willing to put that at risk.
“We’ve got to work together, so we cannot see this sort of behaviour again.
She said Victoria Police will “deploy whatever tactics they need to” to prevent further harm to the city.
