COVID fines dumped in NSW Court

By HARRY PALMER

Minister for COVID misinformation and head of the government “Dream Team”, Brad Hazzard was not available for comment to CairnsNews.

Remembered for his media spin doctoring during that government generated pandemic, Mr Bradley Ronald Hazzard, minister for NSW health, member for Wakehurst since 1991.

Good news for NSW, he is retiring from politics next election with that golden handshake and totally unaccountable as pending fallout of government COVID scam is on the Horrison.

Story from New Daily

Millions of dollars worth of fines issued in NSW for breaching COVID restrictions have been withdrawn by the states’ revenue agency.

NSW Revenue said 33,121 fines would be withdrawn following a landmark decision in the Supreme Court, on Tuesday.

A total number of 62,138 COVID-19 related fines were issued.

Refunds will also be given to those that have already paid the fines, which total millions of dollars.

The announcement came roughly an hour after Justice Dina Yehia told a NSW Supreme Court hearing in Sydney she would order refunds be given for two fines (one of $1000 and another of $3000) issued during 2021 public health lockdowns.

Justice Yehia said she accepted evidence given on Tuesday that the fines were not valid because they did not include a description of the offences.

Earlier, David Kell SC, who was representing the NSW Commissioner of Fines Administration, warned the court that the two infringements did not meet requirements of the NSW Fines Act.

But he warned the court should be “cautious” in throwing them out, as it would set a precedent in the area.

Katherine Richardson SC, who appeared for the plaintiffs, called for an immediate refund of the fines value.

“It’s accepted that the two penalties don’t contain a description about the substance of the offence. We were in furious agreement over that,” Ms Richardson told the court.

“It’s only at the 11th hour the Crown has finally accepted that these were invalid.”

Revenue NSW said the decision to withdraw the fines did not mean the offences had not been committed.

“The Commissioner of Fines Administration is able to independently review or withdraw penalty notices,” it said in a statement on Tuesday afternoon.

“In this case, he has decided to exercise his statutory power to withdraw two types of Public Health Order fines.”

The decision relates to fines issued to individuals and businesses for the infringement, “fail to comply with noticed direction in relation section 7/8/9 – COVID-19”.

The case was launched by the Redfern Legal Centre on behalf of three men – Brenden Beame, Teal Els and Rohan Pank.

Figures obtained by the group showed COVID fines were disproportionately issued to those living in low socio-economic areas, Redfern Legal Centre acting principal solicitor Samantha Lee said last week.

Mr Pank’s fine was withdrawn before the case went to court, with the state agreeing to pay his legal fees.

Justice Yehia ordered the state refund $436 to Mr Beame and $826 to Mr Els and said the men could also file applications to have their legal costs paid.

Ms Lee said the case was about more than just two people’s fines.

“It is about the need to properly adhere to the rule of law, even during a pandemic,” she told news.com.au on Tuesday.

“Today, justice has been granted to three people who took on the NSW government regarding the validity of their COVID fines and won.”

According to Revenue NSW statistics, more than 62,000 fines have been issued for COVID-related offences since the start of the pandemic.

The remaining 29,017 COVID-19 fines would still need to be paid if they were not already resolved, Revenue NSW said in a statement

Justice Yehia said she would order refunds for the other men’s fines, but likely wouldn’t publish reasons for her decision until next year.

About Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

    First the SC stands on the law, the NSW Fines Act, then he flip flops to his opinion.

  2. These “fines’ are only for the obsure/vague reason. HOWEVER, do not be fooled. ALL the covid “fines” can be challenged in court. Then you can also claim for costs for petrol to get to court, babysitting, research charges (using the net) etc etc. Take a list of the costs to be awarded to hand to the “judge”. AND, if a cop was brutal toward you, you can also go for him PERSONALLY! (his insurer won’t like that – and yes, EVERY cop is personally insured. These are corporated cops, NOT peace keepers). Go to bitchute.com and type in: know your rights group. Heaps of vids to help you out. They’re based in Melb. You don’t have to become a member – but – start learning how to protect yourself from their overreach of “powers” that we never gave the b#$%s! Also, listen in on ratfm (only on internet) on Tuesday nights at 8-10pm. Won’t be on next Tuesday but the one after. Then they’ll likely have a xmas break. Put the radio into your Bookmarks so you can find it easily. My Xmas pressie to all you good folks.

  6. tonyryan43 – “I suppose now I will have to watch the executions on TV. Bummer.”

    The least they should do is let you pass judgement on many of the grubs. As a reward for pushing back against the rotten systems and proving a truck load of valuable and very useful information for decades.

    I also want to witness the b……s hang for their murderous actions against us, especially against the kids and babies. I really do hope that we are at a tipping point, where it gets to be too much for decent people and they decide to sort the grubs out.Sooner the better. Of course no violence involved, they will just need a bit of character adjustment.

  8. This is about phraseology. What they really mean is that a description of the offences could not be provided because the offences were unlawful. They violated Section 51 of the Constitution which, contrary to political opinion, cannot ever be suspended. That is the entire purpose of a Constitution. The ultimate in protection of citizens.

    However, people other than academics (who are simply too stupid to grasp the endemic oxymoron), will now realise that constitutions, bills of rights, treaties and, in fact, all civil rights laws, protect nobody. Never have done and never will. Somebody, please explain this to the Aboriginal “Treaty now” activists and, most especially, the Central Land Council, whose current publication trumpets such nonsense.

    Had descriptions of the offences been provided, these would also have violated the Privacy Act (1988), and the Nuremberg Code. I suspect somebody in the NT Law Society phoned a few colleagues interstate and asked about liability of lawyers, magistrates and judges. Such a shame because I was really looking forward to hanging all of them once the truth emerges.

    No kidding. I was going to ask the raging mob to appoint me hanging Judge of the Community Court. We have these in the NT, so they are definitely valid. I suppose now I will have to watch the executions on TV. Bummer.

  9. This is planned as they are preparing for the sueings coming their way. Best to drop all charges rather than foot the bill for sueings.
