Denes Ivan Karabatich was charged with one count each of damaging property, obstructing public officers and possession of housebreaking instruments to commit offence and trespass.
Appearing in the dock with a book in hand, Mr Karabatich continued to quote from it while interrupting Magistrate Stephen Wilson.
�This court is not a court of law,� he said. �The Supreme Court has ruled otherwise,� Magistrate Wilson said.
Repeatedly Mr Karabatich stated it was not a court of law.
�I am not going to argue. I am not interested,� Magistrate Wilson said.
Magistrate Wilson asked if Mr Karabatich wanted to enter a plea.
�I enter no plea, you�re not a court of law,� he said. �Constitutionally you�re not and the people of Australia are sovereign as in the case of Noel & Clifford 1904.�
�This court is null and void.�
Magistrate Wilson adjourned the matter for a trial allocation date.
�You�ll have to go into custody until bail can be signed,� he said.
�You are in contempt of court,� Mr Karabatich said.
