Queensland, Australia threatens to confiscate homes, bank accounts of residents who haven’t paid fines for violating covid mandates

“Now the state is requiring all of those civil citations get paid, or else. And the enforcement actions to collect these fines from the State Penalty and Enforcement Register (SPER) are quite extreme. Citizens who have outstanding tickets are finding their driver’s licenses suspended; bank accounts are being frozen and seized; homes and property are being confiscated, as well as business licenses suspended for outstanding citations.”

‘Unchecked power’ of Dan Andrews’ new pandemic laws met with ‘fury’ The reaction to the “unchecked power” of the new pandemic laws proposed by the Andrews government has been “furious,” according to Sky News host Paul Murray. The new laws would see increased fines for rule breakers, up to two years’ jail time for the worst rule breakers and there would be no need for the government to renew the powers in parliament. “Even people that normally don’t criticise the government are coming out and doing so,” Mr Murray said. “High profile lawyers, part of the Bar association in Victoria have referred to these laws as ‘disgraceful’, for all of the obvious reasons, for all of its lack of oversight, for all of its unchecked power.” Original: Marty Focker
