Victorian MP’s daughter allegedly attacked over concerns over ‘threats’

“She will be okay – but it will take time,” he tweeted Friday afternoon.

“I have reason to believe that this may be related to my role as a Member of Parliament and the positions I have taken.”

The proposed laws will give the prime minister and health minister the power to declare a pandemic and the ability to enforce restrictions such as lockdowns, mask wearing and vaccination mandates.

The proposals triggered fleeting protest scenes earlier in the week, with people shouting that they would “hang” and “kill” Victorian Prime Minister Daniel Andrews.

The protests also featured the use of a prop gallows and loop.

Meddick said he had been concerned about the toxic debate surrounding the legislation.

“Like many others, I have been desperately concerned about the comments, threats and intimidation that have been made against me and my family, as well as the staff and, of course, my colleagues,” he said.

Police said at 11pm Thursday night that a woman was spray-painting over a poster on Smith St in Fitzroy when a man approached her and they were arguing before the woman threw a spray can at the man as she tried to walk.

According to police, the man threw the spray can back at her and hit her in the back of the head.

The investigation into the incident is ongoing.

Meddick denied police characteristics of the events, saying his daughter threw the can behind her as she ran away after being confronted and abused by the man.

In a post on social media, Meddick’s daughter Kielan claimed she had been attacked by a man who threw a spray can at her head for being what she described as “political”.

“I called for help and he threw a spray can in my head. I started bleeding a lot,” she said.

Mrs. Meddick ran into 86 Bar, where staff treated her wounds before she was taken to the hospital.

She said she had a three-inch gash on her head that required stitches and glue.

“I’m home safe now, thank you very much for all the support,” Mrs Meddick said.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has condemned the incident on social media.

“This is not on. It has no place in Australia,” he tweeted.

“This is not just an attack on an innocent person, but an attack on our very democracy.”

The Andrews government has delayed the debate on the pandemic laws to allow it time to make changes to secure support for the legislation.

The assassination of British Conservative MP David David Amess last month focused on the security of politicians.

Fiona Patten, the leader of the Reason Party in Victoria as well recently told SBS News she is in “almost daily” contact with parliamentary security due to a stream of online and personal abuse.

Australian Federal Police Commissioner Reece Kershaw told the Senate in October that the issue of politicians’ security was taken “very seriously” given the “current threat environment”.

He added that further measures were being considered as part of a new model to manage the protection of parliamentarians.
