He is described in this Stuff report as “a veteran protester” although Alf is more inclined to regard him as an ageing trouble-maker.
His name is Castislav “Sam” Bracanov and the silly old fart has been found guilty of throwing a bucket of watered-down horse manure over former ACT leader John Banks last year.
Actually, the charge was common assault.
As you will see further down, assaults on a commoner do not command the same sense of outrage as assaults on the royals or their motor vehicles.
The evidence that Bracanov did assault a commoner is not easy to refute, notwithstanding his not guilty plea. A video of the incident can be seen above.
