High Court rules police and army mandates illegal

A landmark decision in the High Court at Wellington has ruled the vaccine mandates for police and army staff were illegal.

The decision of Justice Cooke is likely to have implications for other groups mandated. It found the mandates, which were ordered by Michael Wood the Minister of Workplace Relations and Safety, were a breach of a person’s rights to refuse medical treatment and to freedom of manifestation of religion. As the limitation of these rights were not justified, they were therefore illegal.

The right to free manifestation of religion had been breached because of the use of human foetal cells in testing, which was contrary to some of the applicant’s religious beliefs.

Wood’s mandate said only vaccinated police and army staff could carry out certain work, and those who refused to be vaccinated would have their employment terminated by 1 March 2022.

DTNZ will be providing a full legal analysis of the decision shortly.

  1. Great, now do everyone else.

    Coercion is coercion, doesn’t matter how many good intentions your roads to hell are paved with.

    ALL VACCINE MANDATES ARE ILLEGAL. That was the entire point of the Nazi trials and the Nuremberg code and the volumes upon volumes of medical literature and bioethical guidelines written in the decades since.

    Either I own my body, or the government does. Either I’m free to decide what I do with it, or someone else gets to and I’m effectively a slave.

    It’s that simple.

    These corrupt courts who dance around little technicalities and pretend that simple, straightforward concepts are actually super nuanced and difficult to interpret do nothing but serve the ruling class they’re supposed to be independent from.

    A pox on all of them.

  2. Now do everyone else.

    Coercion is coercion, it doesn’t matter how many good intentions your road to hell is paved with.

    ALL VACCINE MANDATES ARE ILLEGAL. That’s the entire goddam point of the Nazi trials and the Nuremberg code and the volumes upon volumes of medical literature and bioethical guidelines written in the decades since.

    Either my body is mine, or it belongs to the government. Either I get to decide what I do with it, or I’m a slave who has no right over my own autonomy. It’s that simple.

    These corrupt courts who like to split hairs and dance around little technicalities, take simple straightforward concepts and pretend they’re super nuanced and difficult to interpret, so no one can see what they’re really doing is just advancing the agenda of the government they’re supposed to be independent of.

    Shameful.

    Now we need to apply this ruling to the rest of our society and not just the Police and NZDF.

    • Covidiots think mask and experimental drug (masquerading as vaccines) will keep them safe.

      Omicron (or should it be omiCON) is ravaging the the ‘vaccinated’ and boosted.
      Most of the hospitalisations are vaxxed, why you not asking Aunty Cindy WTF is going on??????

      Keep taking your boosters every month and yeah sure “it will keep you safe’ and paranoid.

      • The majority of the hospitalized are the jabbed. I even suspect some unjabbed are admitted to keep the numbers up. All the recent death are the jabbed?
        This really is a pandemic of the vaccinated.

        Without doubt, if the majority were in fact unvaccinated. Adern would have jumped on her broom, and flown up to the roof tops. Booming its Vaxxines are safe and effective message.

    • The tinfoil hat nonsense is the most pathetic media/government larp I’ve ever seen. No real protestor actually believes that shit.

      Seriously, hire new think tanks, it’s just getting pathetic.

      • There must be something in it because Ghislaine Maxwell had her phone wrapped in tinfoil! ????????????????

        I did love the kids tin foil hat parade at the Freedom Village. Wasn’t that awesome? And the kids using the fountain as a swimming pool? Best fun they have had for years!

    • Lol, pretending to be me?

      Seriously?! ????

      Weak tea, little troll. Weak tea.

      Come on, you’re better than that. At least come up with some SLIGHT variation like calling yourself “quaccinated” and maybe having the little duck emoji replaced with a tombstone. I mean, put some effort into something for once in your life. I know that’s hard for filthy communists like you, but seriously, give it a go. You might end up respecting yourself just a bit more, and who knows, maybe Lady Horseface will even give you a pay increase.

      Just try it for me, okay? You’re better than this.

  4. Too little, too late. If they’ve got this stuff (whatever it REALLY is) in them, there’s no going back. Irreversible. All these bunnies better hope they are still bright-eyed and bushy tail’d in 3 short years.
