Australian governments face class action over draconian, illegal Covid powers
By TONY MOBILIFONITIS
SERENE Teffaha’s Melbourne-based human rights group AdvocateMe has teamed up with Maatouks Law Group to engage state and federal governments in a review of their response to the SARS-Cov-2 outbreak. The governments have until August 27th to respond constructively or face legal action.
Teffaha, under the AdvocateMe banner, has written an open letter of request to governments “to review (their) disproportionate response to SARS-COV-2.” The letter raises issues around the combined government response and should the governments not respond, legal action will be initiated. The full text of the open letter is available here. As Cairns News readers will know, the panic created around the virus led to governments making outrageous impositions on the population at large, such as Victoria’s notorious lockdowns and the vaccine mandates.
Complaints raised in the letter include:
- the inaccuracy and misuse of RT-PCR testing
- detaining individuals without evidence of infection
- banning anti-Covid therapeutics hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin
- inflating infection statistics by declaring any coronavirus detected a Covid-19 infection and conflating suspected cases with probable or confirmed cases
- DNA data mining by BGI subsidiary Forensic Genomics International of China
- diagnosing asymptomatic people as positive merely by close contact or by contact tracing
- recording deaths as ‘from Covid-19’ without reference to pre-existing conditions and based on mere suspicion of infection or contributing to death
- unlawfully mandated influenza and Covid-19 vaccines without evidence of their efficacy to reduce hospitalisations.
Teffaha, who had her law licence suspended by the Victorian Legal Services Board after she clashed with a chief magistrate and the legal establishment over alleged misbehavior, is continuing her battle for justice by providing advocacy, administrative services and collaborative support to Maatouks senior principal solicitor, Peter Maatouk.
“We have also reached out for the legal direction and advice from other solicitors, including the firm of Clemens Haskin Legal, who are dealing with the (Melbourne) Detention Towers Class Action that was filed earlier this year, and is still in play,” Teffaha states on her website.
The letter defends the role of the Biosecurity Act 2015, which was noted by many anti-Covid lockdown activists for the limits it placed on the use of downloadable Covid apps, in direct contradiction to state actions which attempted make phone apps mandatory for access to shops and various services.
AdvocateMe’s letter also raises the very important issue of abuse of human rights by governments making blanket declarations assuming, without evidence, that everyone represents a “biosecurity risk” and therefore should be subject to all sorts of restrictions and impositions.
“We say that that Act strikes a fair balance between the competing needs to protect the public
interest with the need to protect human rights. The Biosecurity Act 2015 is posited on a very important assumption and that people are healthy until they are shown to be a health risk,” the letter states.
“This means that all biosecurity security measures involving matters of quarantine including isolation, detention (including cross-border and returning travelers), treatment, vaccinations, obtaining bodily samples through testing and examinations, contact tracing and wearing clothing and equipment must not be required on any Australian resident without a proper assessment of their individual risk.”
The letter points to proper, lawful risk assessment involving demonstration of evidence that a person has the signs and symptoms of the listed human disease and/or has had direct physical contact or was in close proximity to another person who has the signs and symptoms of that disease.
“A properly authorised individual must show and prove this prerequisite risk assessment before
issuing a person a biosecurity control order or, the States/Territories’ equivalent, a public
health order,” the letter states.
The open letter goes on to note in respect of existing federal powers available for a national biosecurity emergency: “The emergency requirements are qualified and restricted by the significant fact that emergency requirements and directions cannot request an individual to be isolated, detained, tested, vaccinated, medically treated or bodily searched (amongst other actions) in the absence of a biosecurity control order issued to the individual.
“These measures are referred to as biosecurity measures and are captured under Subdivision B
of Division 3 of Part 3 of Chapter 2 of the Biosecurity Act 2015. Emergency and public health powers, at the States and Territories, do not provide a carte blanche to breach an individual’s human rights by isolating them, or detaining them or testing them without the proper required notifications and risk assessments first.”
The letter says states and territories exceeded their powers during the pandemic through directions and laws under public health and emergency legislation “that allow for the use of force
and issuing general directions, that involve biosecurity measures, in the absence of
biosecurity control orders and/or public health orders, to groups of healthy individuals.”
The letter goes on to detail instances of abuse by the states, for instance elderly people being quarantined for extended and unreasonable periods, being kept indoors and denied access to families. “This has grossly extended the standard 14-day period of detention and isolation otherwise applicable.”
Other abuses included forced influenza vaccinations as a condition of access to jobs and family in care facilities; detention in hotel quarantine at borders and forced testing without probable cause; laws in Western Australia legitimizing strip searching for the purpose of vaccination and medical treatment; a South Australian proposal to remove children from parents and place them in quarantine facilities.
“These actions are not only repulsive in our democracy but are simply not endorsed by the Biosecurity Act 2015. They also make a mockery of human rights when refer to safeguards of decency and sensitivity. The States and Territories have also imposed an inconsistent and crippling framework in
dealing with business closures and other business directions,” the letter states.
Serene’s back and fighting fit with class action relaunched and cases running
By TONY MOBILIFONITIS
THE national class action against the COVID-19 tyranny has been relaunched, Melbourne lawyer and human rights advocate Serene Teffaha has announced. Two related court cases are already underway.
“We are now relaunching the National Class Action such that we target the negligent misrepresentations of our governments both national and state in relation to the lack of safety and efficacy in relation to influenza vaccines, COVID-19 vaccinations, masks, asymptomatic testing, hotel detention and lockdowns,” Ms Teffaha announced on her Telegram channel on Tuesday, August 10th.
“Thank you everyone for your patience. We realise that our governments are colluding with employers and businesses to force the uptake of these bioweapons masquerading as vaccines by forcing lockdowns and making vaccination a condition of return to work.
“Governments are unlawfully pushing these agendas through employers and businesses without legitimate directions and in the absence of employers and businesses having the power to mandate medical interventions on groups of people. They are also agitating their position against children in schools. This is a spiritual war for your consciousness. And it is now the time for us to stand in solidarity.”
Ms Teffaha and her supporters at AdvocateMe have spent a month strategising and while they believe laws are on their side, many bureaucrats, scientists, doctors, judges and teachers are “devoid of any humanity and have succumbed to the elites’ agendas”.
“The first thing we all need to do is SAY NO irrespective of the loss of jobs and livelihoods. We have to make tough decisions and take our children out of schools and our elderly members out of aged care homes.
“I understand that for many of you, you are in shock as it is the first time you are confronted by this irrational brutal adversity. But the zombie apocalypse is visible now and there are many within our own families who have become zombies. With all that said, this is the time to stand in our truth, in our faith, in our logic, in our rationalism and in transparent science.”
Ms Teffaha says irrespective of the corruption in the judiciary AdvocateMe will use legal processes as merely one tool in a toolbox. “But we are now thinking outside of the box and we are looking at establishing and connecting as communities through cooperatives to pool our resources, skills and abilities together to create better systems. Please stay tuned for that.” She noted that her group’s strategy was “different to other lawyers who we don’t agree with”.
“We are asking for pledges meaning that you will not transfer any money to us until we incur costs appropriately and proper invoicing has occurred. We don’t agree with ad hoc raising of money and ad hoc legal strategies destined to fail.
“Other parties asking you to pay in go fund me accounts and trust accounts that can be pilfered by governments is not a strategy we recommend or share. We are proud of our honesty and transparency and I will not apologise to anyone for speaking my mind and calling out bullshit when I see it.
“I am happy to unite on terms of transparency and purpose. So please join our Class Action and be weary of those that ask you for money without delivering any service.”
Her group has also established People for Safe Vaccines as a research, campaign and educational platform. “We realise that we need to spearhead actions against employers and businesses who are taking the law in their own hands and as unqualified individuals are now mandating medical interventions on their staff.
“We will be spearheading and supporting Fair Work actions that we intend to escalate to the Federal Court on the lawfulness and reasonableness of their directions. We have now two cases we are leading.”
AdvocateMe is targeting individuals impacted by the COVID-19 vaccination mandates and/or directives, including mandates in Queensland for hospital related employees, workers and contractors, mandates in NSW on transport workers in airports, and imminent impacts on aged care workers and nurses as a result of the announcement of the mandating of vaccines in aged care setting by the Commonwealth.
Also targeted are:
(i) Individuals impacted by mandatory influenza vaccination mandates and/or directions that disallow employees from accessing their jobs and/or visitors from accessing their loved ones;
(ii) Individuals impacted by mandatory hotel detention;
(iii) Individuals impacted by mandatory masking and/or PPE directives;
(iv) Individuals impacted by compulsory RT-PCR testing;
(v) Individuals impacted by forcible and complete business, services and/or place of worship lockdowns;
(vi) Individuals impacted by forcible separation from loved ones in residential aged care facilities and/or any other facilities.
NSW police whistleblowers on board with national COVID class action
By EDITOR, Cairns News
MELBOURNE layer Serene Teffaha has taken NSW police COVID whistleblowers on board with her national class action over human rights abuses under the COVID-19 government responses, particularly Victoria’s Dan Andrews Labor government.
Serene’s Advocate Me Lawyers firm in Melbourne is representing Senior Constable Alexander Cooney and Senior Constable Kevin Dawson, who recently blew the whistle on police being forced to violate human rights as part of COVID regulations enforcement. The police also published a lengthy article debunking the many myths around the COVID-19 narrative being used by governments.
“The aim is to get traction with the NSW Police Commissioner and soon other commissioners across the states and territories as more brave whistleblowers come forward,” Teffaha told Cairns News.
“As a Victorian, I thought that the first officers that will come forward are from Victoria but the reality is that I have NSW officers to be more outspoken and fearless. I can’t even tell you how nervous I am for them and what is to come.
“But I believe this to be a chain reaction. We have many more officers who have come forward and I am working on helping them find their voice. We need to work with our boys and girls in the army and police.
“They are the hands of those that wish to destroy our freedoms. They need to understand how they are being used. Please get behind #copsforcovidtruth and sign up to learn about all the other actions we are taking and the other whistleblowers from the medical industry we are representing.
“It is a lot of work and I am a bit overwhelmed but your support and sign up will create a big difference and keep you in the loop. To all the people who are supporting – thank you. And to all those who want to create doubt and target others, I wish you healing and awakening.”
