Malcolm Turnbull, the Prime Minister of Australia, is expected to be fined $250 after he was caught sailing in a dinghy without wearing his life jacket.
This occurrence apparently took place earlier this week near the Prime Minister’s residence in Sydney, with the photo of Turnbull sans life jacket becoming available to authorities.
"We want to ensure everyone enjoys their break and gets home safely this summer so please, wear a life jacket and take care on our waterways," Mitchell said, adding that "NSW Maritime officers will be out in force during the New Year period to ensure all boaters are adhering to maritime safety laws."
Turnbull himself has apologized for the infraction, citing the importance of water safety during the current season.
"So lesson learned; I will make sure I always wear a life jacket in my dinghy regardless of how close I am to the shore, just as I always do on my kayak," he wrote on his Facebook page.
