No bail for alleged NSW quarantine skipper

·1-min read

A man will remain behind bars for at least another month after allegedly fleeing quarantine while COVID-positive and spending time out in Sydney.

Anthony Karam, 27, was on Friday morning charged with 13 offences related to the breach of public health orders amid NSW's COVID-19 lockdown.

Karam earlier this month tested positive to COVID-19 but allegedly failed to isolate and disappeared, prompting a warrant for his arrest.

He was located on Thursday evening at a Wentworth Point apartment and taken to Bankstown Police Station, where he has been placed in isolation.

Karam's case was heard at Bankstown Local Court on Friday. He did not apply for bail and it was formally refused by magistrate Glenn Walsh.

His matter will next appear at Burwood Local Court on September 23.
