THE GATEWAY PUNDIT: Residents of Australia’s 2nd largest state are now at risk of losing the money in their bank accounts, their homes, and even their drivers licenses, if they do not pay bogus fines for breaking any of the tyrannical government’s draconian Covid rules.
Since at least September, Queensland Health has employed the services of the State’s Penalties Enforcement Register (SPER) to collect a total of around $5.2 million. The extreme measures could bring in close to $100 million in total. In New South Wales alone, there are over $56 million in unpaid Covid fines that would be subject to collection, according to 9News Australia.
What money? Throughout the lengthy lockdowns, a huge number of citizens were not permitted to work or make a living in any way. Residents of Queensland could not leave their homes without being harassed by police or military officials, and if they strayed too far from their houses they were issued a ticket and a fine.
Queensland’s public health dictators are looking to cash in on. $5.7 million in “significantly overdue invoices” from the government’s mandatory quarantine facilities. Not only are Australian travelers forced into mandatory quarantine centers for 2 weeks upon arrival, but they are also sent a bill for those stays, totaling a few thousand dollars each.
There have been over 44,000 hotel quarantine stays that are not paid for as of right now. Only about 11% are considered eligible for collections, but many more are expected to default over the coming months.
