After being summoned to court on allegations of "concealing treason," Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has quietly slipped out of Melbourne.
Dan is scheduled to appear in court on Friday at 9.30 a.m. after the charge was successfully lodged with the Myrtleford Magistrates' Court.
According to the Daily Mail Australia, Andrews had simply shrugged off the vexing court battle, which comes amid a slew of other important legal issues for the Andrews administration to deal with.

'I think the more interesting cases will be Ken Phillips and WorkSafe/HQ proceedings and then the SlugGate (ICook foods) court proceedings against (Professor Brett) Sutton and the health department,' a source said.
The above statement points to WorkSafe's investigation into Andrews' terrible hotel quarantine facilities, which contributed to the deaths of over 800 Victorians, and the health department's closure of a catering company after a slug was planted by shady council personnel.
