The reaction to the “unchecked power” of the new pandemic laws proposed by the Andrews government has been “furious,” according to Sky News host Paul Murray.

The new laws would see increased fines for rule breakers, up to two years’ jail time for the worst rule breakers and there would be no need for the government to renew the powers in parliament.

“Even people that normally don’t criticise the government are coming out and doing so,” Mr Murray said.

“High profile lawyers, part of the Bar association in Victoria have referred to these laws as ‘disgraceful’, for all of the obvious reasons, for all of its lack of oversight, for all of its unchecked power.”
