The following petition to amend the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act has been allocated to the Petitions Select Committee.
This petition is an attempt to provide a legal solution to the problem of vaccination mandates. In recent cases where the applicants sought relief from the Vax Mandate Orders Justice Mathew Palmer (and other Judges) in the High Court ruled that, “while concerns of bullying, harassment, and vilification of the unvaccinated and their family members may have foundation, vaccine mandates do not breach the NZ Bill of Rights Act”.
This ruling, which went against the plaintiffs, discussed section 5 of the Act, which says: “the rights and freedoms expressed in this Bill of Rights may be subject only to such reasonable limits prescribed by law as can be demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society”.
The proposed amendment to section 5 would make clear, that New Zealand’s constitution reflects rule of law principles, and respects, and upholds the life, and security of its citizens (all natural persons). The petition solution applies to the Bill of Rights Act 1990, under the heading; Life and security of the person, making Sections 8, 9, 10 and 11 sacrosanct.
The amendment to the Bill of Rights proposed would deny justification of any forced medication of anyone or group of people, as there is no just reason to take a person’s life or torture them or to medicate or experiment on them against their will. Not even Covid-19. The influenza jab isn’t mandated.
The petition asked for Section 5 of the bill to be amended and a new Section 5A to be inserted.
Current Section 5
Justified limitations: Subject to section 4, the rights and freedoms contained in this Bill of Rights may be subject only to such reasonable limits prescribed by law as can be demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society.
Petition: Amendment of Section 5
Insert: and subject to section 5A
Petition: Addition of Section 5A
Insert: Unjustified limitations. None of sections 4, 5, 6 provide any justified limits on rights and freedoms contained in sections 8, 9, 10 and 11.
