The Sydney woman at the centre of multiple alleged racist attacks that went viral on social media has pleaded not guilty to 15 charges.
Angela Weedon, 38, from Kirrawee, in the city’s south, was arrested four times in April over a string of incidents that shocked Australia.
Weedon appeared before a magistrate at Sutherland Local Court on Monday where she pleaded not guilty to all charges.
On one occasion
she was allegedly depicted pursuing and filming an
elderly Chinese woman on a Sydney train, appearing to scream “you are not
welcome here illegal, you and your biocontamination” and “can you even speak
She was also arrested
after vision emerged of a woman appearing to yell “go home to China” at an
Asian employee at the Telstra store in Westfield Miranda in the same month.
She faced court for the fourth
time in April after she allegedly threatened and kicked a man after he denied
her a cigarette.
Weedon was charged with behaving in an offensive manner in or near a public place or school, stalking and intimidation with intention to cause fear or physical harm and common assault.
After she was released on that occasion she branded a press photographer a “piece of s**t”, “illegal” and “little mister Indian”, as police officers threatened to lock her up again.
She is currently on house arrest like bail conditions and is not allowed to leave her home other than to seek medical treatment, appear in court or to buy essential food and medical supplies.
Magistrate Jayeann Carney ordered a brief be served by 17 August. The matter returns to court September 7.
