Quote:In Sam Bracanov's mind, the royal family are thieves who take taxpayer money when they come to New Zealand.
But the anti-royalist's unsuccessful plan to throw horse manure on Prince Charles and his wife Camilla on their trip last November means he will be the one paying court fines.
Bracanov, 77, has been found guilty after a hearing in Auckland District Court of planning to commit an assault on the royal couple, and was handed a $200 fine and a criminal conviction.
Bracanov went to central Auckland when the royals were due to visit on November 12 with a bucket of horse manure which he planned to throw on them.
But after having told police of his plans when they visited the day before, they were ready for him and arrested him before he could carry out his plan.
Bracanov did not contest any of the evidence against him on Monday but said the royal family earned their positions not by their brains but by their bodies (ie birth).
"They deserve what the body produces. They don't deserve anything but this," he said.
He said it was not him committing crimes but rather the royal family, who were on a taxpayer-funded trip to New Zealand without asking taxpayers.
Judge Anne Kiernan didn't agree, finding him guilty of preparing to commit an assault with a weapon, the weapon being the manure.
Bracanov said he would continue to protest until New Zealand was a republic.
Made the news - mission accomplished!
