Victoria government lied about who had access to Covid contact tracing data

By Didi Rankovic | Reclaim The Net | December 28, 2021

The government of the Australian state of Victoria not only decided to deliberately keep citizens in the dark about court rulings exposing the fact the privacy of their data collected by contact tracing apps can be compromised – but is now doubling down.

And the way the state’s Acting Premier Jacinta Allan, who has currently taken over while Premier Dan Andrews is being investigated for “concealing treason and fraud,” chose to defend the failure to inform people about matters pertaining to sensitive private information about them was to say the government was – shielding them from misinformation.

Australian media say the attempts to hide the truth have been made repeatedly, and Allan’s logic in defending the move is that if revealed, the Supreme Court’s secret ruling that said the data was not “absolutely protected” would have given rise to a “baseless scare campaign” as media reporting the facts would have caused “fear and misinformation.”

She did not clarify what type of “misinformation and fear” was expected to arise from the truth.

“The decision was taken in the balance of providing confidence in the Victorian community that this wasn’t a matter that needed to have that level of misinformation spread about it,” Allan said on Tuesday of the way the multiple levels of deceit had been handled.

This Supreme Court finding came to light after the Herald Sun reported that despite explicit promises of information safety, and its use only for health purposes, this was a lie – and one ongoing for two years.

Instead of making contact tracing data available only in order to fight the epidemic, it was also available to law enforcement, and authorities like the WorkCover agency.

It was precisely that agency’s demands to be given access to tracing app data that launched the legal case, when the Department of Health asked the court to order WorkCover to stop.

Another revelation is that the state’s Covid commander Jeroen Weimar petitioned the court to keep the case secret for five years. He tried to persuade the court that maintaining Victorians’ trust in the tracing system was what really matters – at the same time downplaying the importance of the citizens’ right to know their data can be shared, despite assurances from Covid tracers that this was not possible.

Asked if it was right to hide from the public the truth about the safety of their data – and the fact a court case was unfolding financed by their tax money, Allan said, “They don’t deserve a fear campaign, they don’t deserve misinformation,” and added that their data “will be protected.”

Shadow Attorney-General Matt Bach sees the scandal differently:

“People should be shocked and appalled. We should never become accustomed to this level of dishonesty.”

  1. “Premier Dan Andrews is being investigated for “concealing treason and fraud”

    The ruler is a criminal and his replacement is a liar.

  2. Unlawful land grabs, Gazuntite passes

    The real agenda should be pretty obvious from reading the article below.

    The push to get everyone vaxxed may have more to do with getting everyone hooked up on a digital control system than it is about health. New Zealand have let the cat out of the bag in this

    Doc link below. Just look at the timeline on page 5, it looks well dodgy like it was planned.

    I am not sure how this fits into other countries but it looks like NZ were picked to be the trial. The passport will then be linked to a digital wallet.

    Just like Gazuntite Pass, could it ever happen again?

    New Zealand seems to be the key driver powered by the WEF.

    Given that they are pushing for a Republic of Aorearoa I imagine when the Monarch in charge of the constitutional Monarchy of NZ get wind Dan Andrews won’t be the only one pursued for being a traitor.

    Further more when the army twig on that they have been sold out with a bioweapon I would not like to be in the Government’s shoes! Let hope I am wrong, I would rather be sorry for getting it wrong!

  3. This article reveals how the Victorian government, and indeed all state governments, have completely destroyed any trust that the citizens of Australia might have had in them. They are just a mob of liars, cheats, drug pushers and vaccine paedophiles. They no longer serve the people who pay their over-inflated wages, but set themselves up as lords and masters, taking their instructions from foreign companies and agencies. They have become the French aristocracy of the 1790’s, and we all know what happened to them!
