A Sydney man whose trip to the NSW north coast triggered a lockdown in four local government areas is now in Serbia.
- Zoran Radovanovic pleaded guilty to breaking health orders
- Lismore local court learned he was now in Serbia
- Magistrate Jeff Linden told court it was not a violation of bail conditions
Zoran Radovanovic is said to have traveled from Sydney to Byron Bay in late July to examine real estate.
The 52-year-old became seriously ill and was admitted to Lismore Base Hospital where he tested positive for COVID-19.
This led to a lockdown in the LGAs of Byron, Ballina, Lismore and Richmond Valley.
Guilty pleas on all counts
Mr. Radovanovic was charged with failing to comply with electronic records and failing to comply with health orders without reasonable excuse.
He has now pleaded guilty to all counts.
The case was raised today before the local court in Lismore, which heard that Mr. Radovanovic was in Serbia.
Magistrate Jeff Linden told the court it was not a violation of bail conditions.
The case will return to court next month.
Mr Radovanovic’s 20-year-old son Kristian pleaded guilty last month to four counts, including failing to comply with the electronic recording and not wearing a face mask.
