In July, Maryo Shanki, 21, and twins Ramsin Adil and Roni Shawka, 27, travelled from a south-west Sydney hotspot to Molong, about 30 kilometres west of Orange.
The twins left Sydney on a Friday morning and stopped at South Bowenfields and Orange, where they received a call from NSW Health and were told one had tested positive.
The brothers, along with Mr Shanki, are accused of continuing the trip despite the notification.
They continued on to Molong, where they were met by a police escort and driven back to Sydney.
A few days later the twins’ mother Saeeda Shawka, aged in her 50s, died with coronavirus.
It was reported at the time she had refused treatment in a special health hotel.
Ms Shawka and her family are refugees who arrived in Australia from their hometown in Batnaya in northern Iraq, which had been reduced to rubble by ISIS in 2014.
Today the Shawka brothers and Mr Shanki entered guilty pleas to charges related to breaking the public health orders.
Their lawyer, Hugh Salter, tried to have their sentencing moved to the Downing Centre Local Court in Sydney but this request was refused.
They will be sentenced on November 24.Internet Explorer Channel Network
