Andrews' captain's call curfew must be scrapped immediately

Today, Victoria Police Chief Commissioner, Shane Patton has confirmed Victoria Police did not request and was not consulted prior to the introduction of Melbourne nightly curfew.

This revelation follows confirmation earlier this week by Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton that Melbourne’s curfew was not based on medical advice nor was he consulted prior to its introduction.

Melbourne’s night curfew has been in force for 58 days and has resulted in more than $6 million in fines and represents the single greatest limitation imposed on the freedoms of Victorians in our state's history.

Daniel Andrews has misled the community about the basis of his curfew and now must be scrapped immediately.

Comments attributable Shadow Minister for Police & Community Safety, David Southwick:

“If Melbourne’s draconian curfew isn’t a health measure and it’s not a policing measure – why is Daniel Andrews locking families in their homes?

“Daniel Andrews must come clean on his captain's call curfew and explain why he is treating Melbournians like prisoners.

“The Premier has gone rogue and is making up cruel rules as he goes along, leaving all Victorians to pay the price.”
