MP Andy Meddick released a statement voicing how ‘desperately worried’ he was about comments directed at his family and colleagues regarding public backlash over Daniel Andrews’ pandemic legislation.
“And now, my worst fears have turned into reality. Last night, my beautiful daughter Kielan was attacked on the street. I was with her in hospital until the early hours,” said a statement released by Mr. Meddick. “I have reason to believe that this could be linked to my role as an MP and the positions I have taken on the pandemic response.”

Police have since released their report, revealing that ‘a 25-year-old woman was spray painting over a poster on Smith Street when she was approached by an unknown man about 11pm’.
