Still Waters Posted August 22, 2022 #1 Share Posted August 22, 2022 (IP: Staff) · A Victorian man who illegally scaled Uluru has become the first person to be convicted since climbing the sacred rock was banned in 2019. Simon Day was found guilty in absence on two charges – walking or riding on a Commonwealth reserve and entering a restricted or prohibited area – in Alice Springs Local Court. The 44-year-old was also fined $2,500. Parks Australia, which jointly manages the national park with the Anangu traditional owners, welcomed the decision. "The director of National Parks takes the protection of sacred sites very seriously," a spokesperson said. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2022-08-19/victorian-man-simon-day-convicted-for-illegally-climbing-uluru/101351248 $2,500 (USD $1,719 or £1,453) https://www.ladbible.com/news/man-becomes-first-person-to-be-fined-for-climbing-uluru-20220822 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
