Paul was charged with incitement for holding a Sunday church service during lockdown 3 on Valentine’s Day weekend. After holding an outdoor service during lockdown 4 in May he was imprisoned for 17 days for breaching his bail conditions. The incitement charges against Paul were resolved in November with a ruling in the Magistrates; Court of “No conviction, no undertaking or bonds, with a $1500 fine”.

Paul also runs a small business Lots of Fins Aquarium to support his church and its mission work in Asia to rescue children from poverty, sexual exploitation & trafficking, abuse & slavery! Because of the incitement charges against him plus a previous mask fine Victoria Police and Victorian Covid Officers targeted his business looking for CovidSafe breaches often staking outside his shop for many hours.
