The Unshackled was present at another mention hearing at the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on Friday 29th March 2019 for the patriots charged over the clash with leftist protestors outside the Milo Yiannopoulos speaking event in Kensington, Melbourne on Monday 4th December 2017.
Originally known as the Milo 5 defendants Dwayne McKenzie and Garry Hume received diversions last year. This hearing saw all charges dropped against Ritchie Whelan resulting in Neil Erikson and Ricky Turner being the only remaining defendants for a trial set for June this year.
Erikson and Turner and their lawyers are currently seeking to obtain video evidence for their defence before the trial begins. We spoke to the pair outside of court after the mention.
