In late 2021 I was asked by a friend to help draft a letter to their employer explaining why they were unable to consent to the mandatory Covid-19 vaccination policy that the company was implementing in order to comply with a State Government Mandatory Covid19 Vaccination Health Order.  The main arguments put forward in these letters are:

1. The inability of employees to give voluntary, informed consent to the said mandates because they were unable to establish if the said Covid-19 jabs available are safe.
2. COVID-19 Vaccines, currently available in Australia are still under an experimental, clinical trial and are only Provisionally Approved. Participation in an experimental Clinical Trial must be voluntary which means the current Mandatory COVID-19 Jabs are unlawful under both International Law as well as Australian Criminal Law.

Numerous laws, regulations and policies protect the right of an individual to giving voluntary, informed consent when deciding to receive a vaccine or a medical procedure, including:

  1. The Australian Commonwealth Constitution which prohibits civil conscription in medical and dental services (s.51(23A)).
  2. The Biosecurity Act 2015 (Cth) which prohibits vaccination or treatment without meeting the stringent requirements of an individual Human Biosecurity Control Order (s.92), and prohibits the use of force for vaccination (s.95).
  3. The UNESCO Statement on Bioethics and Human Rights, which states “Any preventative diagnostic and therapeutic medical intervention is only to be carried out with the prior free and informed consent of the person concerned, based on adequate information. The consent should, where appropriate, be express and may be withdrawn by the person concerned at any time and for any reason, without disadvantage and without prejudice(Art.6).
  4. The Criminal Code Act 1995 (Cth), which relates to interfering with political liberty states “Any person who, by violence or by threats or intimidation of any kind, hinders or interferes with the free exercise or performance, by any other person of any political right or duty shall be guilty of an offence” (s.83.4).
  5. The official Australian Immunisation Handbook, which states that for consent to be legally valid, “It must be given voluntarily in the absence of undue pressure, coercion or manipulation.” (s.2.1.3). 
  6. The Nuremberg Code, which states “The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential” (Art.1).

The four letters are as follows:

Covid Letter 1.  This letter lays out some of the legal arguments for refusing to comply with a State Government Mandatory Covid-19 Vaccination Health Order.

Covid Letter 2. This letter lays out some of the medical and scientific information regarding the safety and efficacy of the various Covid-19 experimental jabs.

Covid Letter 3.  This letter is in response to an official company “show cause letter as to why an employee shouldn't be dismissed for refusing to get jabbed. This letter contains additional information regarding the criminal malfeasance of the Covid-19 Vaccine Companies and points out that the Vaccine Manufacturers, the Government and all Companies enforcing the State Government’s Mandatory Vaccination Order of have not proven that the Covid-19 injections are safe and that this is the central issue preventing an employee from being able to give voluntary, informed consent to being jabbed in order to keep their job.  The COVID-19 Jabs currently available in Australia are still under an experimental, clinical Trial and only provisionally approved by the TGA. Participation in a Clinical Trial must be voluntary which means the mandatory COVID-19 Vaccinations are unlawful under Criminal Law.

Covid Letter 4. This letter is addressed to the Fair Work Commission (FWC) associated with an Unfair Dismissal Claim being filed with the FWC against an employer who has terminated the employment of an employee for refusing to get the Jab.  The main thrust of this letter is that the employee has refused to comply with the State Government Covid-19 Direction to be jabbed because they have been unable to give “informed consent” to the procedure as all Covid vaccines currently available in Australia are only provisionally approved and as such are part of a clinical trial. Mandating “clinical vaccine trials” is clearly a direct breach of the Nuremberg Code and by definition is a “Crime Against Humanity”.  It is worth noting that “Crimes Against Humanity” is a capital offence (meaning punishable by death) with no Statute of Limitations (meaning there is no time limit as to when perpetrators can be brought to justice)

Readers are reminded that the letters are for information purposes only. Readers are free to use the text of the letters as they see fit, but be aware I am neither a doctor, scientist nor lawyer and therefore take no responsibility with regard to any of the medical, scientific or legal information contained within the said letters.
