Liberty Victoria hits out at ‘draconian’ border closure leaving Victorians shunned


A civil liberty group has criticised Victorian government’s “draconian” measure to close the borders with NSW, leaving many Victorians who want to return home “shunned”.

Liberty Victoria’s senior vice president Michael Stanton questioned whether the decision to shut the border infringed on Victorians’ rights.

It’s believed there are around 3000 Victorians across the border.

“We are very concerned that the restrictions aren’t a proportionate limitation to Victorians’ human rights,” he told Heidi Murphy on 3AW Drive.
