Talisman Saber protester Dunstan fined just under $1000

A PEACE activist who appeared in Rockhampton Magistrates Court this morning was slapped fines just under $1000 after he snuck into Shoalwater Bay to disrupt proceedings in exercise Talisman Saber 2013.

The man, Graeme Dunstan, has been cautioned he will serve 10 days in prison if he doesn't pay the court ordered fines.
