Some people finally take Human Rights into account. Yes, they were written to protect freedom which is more important than anything else, including public safety and health!
A rushed lockdown of nine tower blocks in Melbourne, Australia, due to an outbreak of coronavirus breached human rights laws, an ombudsman has found.
About 3,000 people were confined – under police guard – to their public housing units from 4 July for up to two weeks, after a state government order.
The residents were given no notice, meaning many people were left without food or medicine, the ombudsman found.
The Victorian government denies that the detention broke human rights laws.
