Former principal seeks bail
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.
