Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Nick Dametto
PO Box 399
INGHAM QLD 4850

Total Signatures - 1256

Sponsoring Member: Mr Nick Dametto MP

Posting Date: 8/06/2020

Closing Date: 13/07/2020

Tabled Date: 14/07/2020

Responded By: Hon Mark Ryan MP on 13/08/2020

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the complete mockery made of COVID-19 gathering and social distancing restrictions at recent mass protests across the State. While the vast majority of Queenslanders have complied with the government's restrictions as a matter of public health and safety in order to flatten the curve, the hypocrisy of allowing thousands of people to congregate during the protests has infuriated many, including those who have received fines for relatively minor breaches of the COVID-19 rules in place.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House do all within its power to revoke or refund fines handed to Queenslanders who breached COVID-19 rules as a matter of principle.
