A FORMER primary school principal charged with making threats to kill and breaching a restraining order will appear in the Family Violence Court next week.

Daniel Noel Bralich (49) appeared via video link in a Perth Magistrates Court today over five charges in relation to an armed siege with police in June.

The former Hillcrest Primary School principal allegedly breached a restraining order and threatened to kill police officers after sparking a two-hour stand-off with them.

According to police, the siege on June 27 occurred after officers visited Mr Bralich to serve him with a restraining order and confiscate his firearms.

Mr Bralich was charged with three counts of threatening to kill and remanded in Hakea Prison.

Mr Bralich first appeared in court in July when the matter was adjourned until today for the two breaches of a restraining order charges to be added.

Since that appearance, and faced with all five charges, the 49-year-old applied for bail.

Mr Bralich’s lawyer Tim Monaghan told the court today that, given the nature of the charges, a bail risk assessment would be required.

The magistrate said the assessment would have to be ordered by the Family Violence Court before deciding whether bail would be granted.

Mr Bralich is due to appear in the Family Violence Court to seek the risk assessment report on August 15 via video link from Hakea.
