A lawyer representing a teenager who broke an egg on Senator Fraser Anning’s head has confirmed all donations to the teen will go to victims of the Christchurch terrorist attack.
17-year-old Will Connolly filmed himself cracking an egg over the Senator’s head at an event in Moorabbin over the weekend, with the Senator promptly punching him in the head in retaliation before Anning's supporters tackled Connolly to the ground.
Lawyer Peter Gordon, who is representing Will Connolly pro bono, spoke to media today confirming Will was not interested in pressing charges over the retaliation.
He addressed the tens of thousands of dollars donated online to Will since the incident.
“There have been many generous contributions to Will to support him and pay for his legal defence…Will has committed that every cent donated go to support victims of the attack in Christchurch”
He said they were co-operating with police and there was nothing they could add right now.
Will and his family would appreciate some privacy, he said.
