Former prin­ci­pal seeks bail

Eastern Reporter - - News - Lau­ren Pi­lat

A FORMER Bayswa­ter pri­mary school prin­ci­pal charged with mak­ing threats to kill and breach­ing a re­strain­ing order will ap­pear in the Fam­ily Vi­o­lence Court this week as he seeks bail.

Daniel Noel Bralich (49) ap­peared via video link in Perth Mag­is­trates Court last week over five charges in re­la­tion to an armed siege with po­lice in June. The former Hill­crest Pri­mary School prin­ci­pal is al­leged to have breached a re­strain­ing order and threat­ened to kill po­lice of­fi­cers, spark­ing a two-hour stand­off.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, the siege on June 27 hap­pened af­ter of­fi­cers went to serve him with a re­strain­ing order and con­fis­cate his firearms.

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

He first ap­peared in court in July. The mat­ter was ad­journed to Au­gust 9 for the two breaches of a re­strain­ing order charges to be added. Since that ap­pear­ance, and faced with all five charges, Mr Bralich ap­plied for bail.

The mag­is­trate said a risk as­sess­ment was re­quired be­fore de­cid­ing on bail. Mr Bralich is due to ap­pear via video link from Hakea in the Fam­ily Vi­o­lence Court on Au­gust 15 to seek the risk as­sess­ment re­port.
