Mandates: “Sovereignty, as per the ICCPR, is the bedrock of human rights.”

The statement

“At its core, this issue is not about vaccines. It’s not even about Covid-19. This issue is about the
checks and balances which are supposed to measure and mitigate the Government’s uses of
power, particularly when they infringe on individual citizens’ human rights.”

The source

Open letter to the Australian Human Rights Commission’s ‘relatively new’ Commissioner, Lorraine Finlay, from lawyer Peter Fam of Maat’s Method and Julian Gillespie QC. Dated 27 June 2022 https://www.maatsmethod.com.au/post/australian-human-rights-commission-failed-to-perform-their-statutory-function-during-covid-19

My take on it

The letter itself is 14 pages. Exceptional, by any standard. It is well worth the read.

Two Annexures take the total to 314 pages. If evidence mattered, it would be more than enough.

I would describe the document as a chronicle of systemic failures by key agencies and authority figures charged with protecting our health, welfare and personal rights.

Like the authors, and like so many Australians, I await a response that is worthy of the questions raised.
