“A man has been issued a $1000 Penalty Infringement Notice (PIN) by police conducting inquiries into the circumstances surrounding a group not complying with Ministerial Directions in Sydney’s west,” a NSW police statement read.
“Officers from Nepean Police Area Command initiated an investigation after photos and videos were shared on social media concerning an incident at a home in Penrith on Saturday 25 April 2020.
“Following inquiries, police issued PINs to five women – aged in their late teens to early 20s – for failing to comply with a Ministerial Direction on Thursday 30 April 2020. A 22-year-old man, who was filmed in the videos, was spoken to by police at the time.
“Following information received and further inquiries, the man was issued a $1000 PIN for non-essential travel via email about 2pm today (Wednesday 13 May 2020).”
Cleary was initially fined $10,000 – 60 per cent of which was suspended – and threatened with a one-game suspension by the integrity unit.
But on Monday night the star playmaker was hit with further sanctions for being “untruthful” alongside housemate and fellow Panther Tyrone May – who was fined $15,000.
Cleary was fined an additional $30,000 and will miss Penrith’s first two matches when the season resumes on May 28.
May has had a two-game ban added to the four-game suspension he was already serving for his role in the sex-tape scandal which rocked the club last year.
