My thoughts on the statement from the Attorney General today

The Attorney General's department website gives the following guidance to the public sector:

"The UN Human Rights Committee has stated that in no case may a person be arbitrarily deprived of the right to enter his or her own country, and that there are few, if any, circumstances in which deprivation of the right to enter a person's own country could be considered reasonable."

It also goes on to state that:

"The United Nations Committee on Human rights has stated that restrictions on freedom of movement should not only serve permissible purposes [namely national security, public order, public health or morals or the rights and freedoms of others]; they must also be necessary and proportionate to protect them and must be the least intrusive means of achieving the desired result."

Yet it seems the Attorney General believes these statements may not apply when it comes to restricting Australians from being able to return right now.

How does that make you feel? Do you think our situation is necessary and proportionate? Is it the least intrusive means of achieving the desired result? My thoughts...

    • Protect us from what? Leftist hypocrisy? Globalist Agenda? The virus has an infection rate so low that it is easier to catch a cold on a Sydney train, a mortality rate so low it is insignificant (check the numbers, they are wrong, everything virus or not are counted towards the virus.) The Virus is not a health emergency anymore, and stop using this as an excuse for emergency powers. We the People have had enough.

      • Well said and a tragic outcome really.  The Attorney General is supposed to defend human rights but it's no surprise that he won't.  

        I searched for a reference to his response but can't seem to find it.  Was this a media release or a speech?

        • There was no immediate response provided to the U.N.   I'm sure i have already had a conversation about this here but my posts have gone?

          The smh article mentiined that the Governor Generals assistant said that Australua was confident it was complying with humsn rights.

          I really don't think this was the immediate  response though.  Via the media?  A muted response..?

          Has anyone heard anything that resembles a response from the Australuan Givernment yet??  Other than this smh article?

          I don't think we've had a response yet?
