Southern Peninsula cafe operator Michelle Loielo will challenge the State Government’s lockdown curfew in the Supreme Court. Ms Loielo, who runs Unica Cucina e Caffe in Capel Sound, argued her business had been placed under “significant pressure” as a result of the restrictions.

The ABC reports that Ms Loielo stated in an affidavit to the court that she had only made $400 in a week – down from a turnover of $20,000 a week before the lockdown. Ms Loielo said she feared for her future and that of her children because of the impact of the curfew.

“I am genuinely concerned that I am not going to be able to provide for my children if this situation continues,” she said. “I am afraid that I will lose my house.”

Lawyers for Ms Loielo have filed a motion in the Supreme Court stating the curfew was “unlawful and invalid”. Her legal team also argued that the curfew was not “reasonably proportionate” and that those who initiated the lockdown had failed to take into account Ms Loielo’s human rights.

The ABC also reports that Ms Loielo had indicated she would stand for Liberal Party preselection for the state seat of Nepean, which is currently held by Labor’s Chris Brayne. The next election is due to be held in 2022.
