It is an offence for anyone, alone or together with others, to wilfully and without lawful authority “beset” any premises, whether public or private, for the purpose and with the effect of obstructing, hindering or impeding by an assembly of people any person’s lawful right to enter, use or leave such premises (section 52(1A) Summary Offences Act1966 (Vic)). The maximum penalty is a $1500 fine or three months’ jail. You should seek legal advice about the penalty you may face if you are found guilty of besetting.
