Comrades, the Michigan COVID compliance ministry has arrested dissident Marlena Pavlos-Hackney, 55, the owner of Marlena’s Bistro and Pizzeria for refusing to comply with the dictates of the state lockdown. Ms. Pavlos Hackney now faces more than three months in prison for her non-compliance. A fellow citizen who attempted to assist the restaurant owner also had an arrest warrant issued for his support of her.
MICHIGAN – […] Ingraham County Circuit Judge Rosemaria Aquilina accused Pavlos-Hackney of having “selfishly not followed the orders” and accused her of doing so “for your own financial gain and apparently for the publicity that comes with it” during a hearing on Friday.
The restaurant owner will be in jail until the state is confident that her establishment is closed and after she pays $7,500, according to the Detroit News.
“This owner has continued to willfully violate the state’s food laws, public health orders, and the order of the court — a dangerous act that may have exposed dozens of diners and employees to the virus following the discovery that one of Marlena’s customers tested positive for the virus within two days of eating there,” District Attorney Dana Nessel said. “MDARD is particularly concerned because the potential exposure happened at a restaurant that refuses to comply with basic COVID-19 measures required by the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services.”
Also during Friday’s hearing, the judge ordered a man who claimed to represent Pavlos-Hackney as an “assistance of counsel” to be arrested on suspicion of contempt of court because he allegedly represented himself as a lawyer but is not licensed to practice. (read more)
