from 21st Century Wire:
This week, Australia took its burgeoning fascist police state to a new level, with officials in Western Australia now issuing electronic ankle bracelets and forced isolation in specially designated hotels to anyone it believes has violated the new raft of controversial new ‘COVID laws.’
A 33-year-old woman from Perth in Western Australia has become the first person to be fitted with the state’s new electronic monitoring bracelet, after allegedly violating new COVID quarantine rules imposed on the population.
According to police reports, the woman arrived home from New South Wales state on September 1st, and was then directed to ‘self-isolate’ in her Perth home for 14 days as part of Australia’s new mandatory quarantine system.
She was then caught by agents working with the state’s newly deputised COVID enforcement force known as the “Self-Quarantine Assurance Team.” Agents claim they were only conducting a “routine check” when they discovered two men visiting the woman at her own house. Agents then raised the alarm to central office who then promptly ordered the woman be removed from her home and placed in a specially designated hotel which is being used by the state as a makeshift isolation facility where she would be tagged and surveilled for a period of two weeks.
On top of the forced detention, the woman was issued with a punitive $1,000 AUD fine for interacting with the two men during her initial home quarantine order.
According to the official police statement:
“After careful consideration of the circumstances of the breach and the woman’s previous history, the State Emergency Coordinator formed a view that it was necessary to monitor her location during the quarantine period.”
“The monitoring device, attached to the woman’s ankle, will remain in place until the end of the woman’s quarantine period.”
The 33-year-old woman becomes the first person in Western Australia to be fitted with the new electronic monitoring tag introduced under the COVID-19 State of Emergency laws.
This latest draconian move by Australian officials has raised new fears that the country is now being turned into a full-blown police state, as officials claim the country is in the midst of a ‘pandemic’ following a supposed ‘surge’ in the number of people testing positive PCR tests for coronavirus, even though overall hospitalisations and deaths have been relatively nominal.
