Inessa Zorkina Wiki, Inessa Zorkina Bio
Inessa Zorkina, a member of the coronavirus denier group 99% Unite, had police called on her after she refused to wear a mask in the Melbourne supermarket on Wednesday night.
Ms Zorkina shared several videos to the group’s Facebook page of her confrontation with police officers.
Despite face masks being mandatory in Melbourne, the single mother claimed it was her right not to wear one and was later hit with a $200 fine.
Groups that oppose deadlocks, masking, and police authority generally rely on a series of suspicious discussions that are easily overlooked:
Rules are directives, not laws.
A common theme of exchanges with the police is that public health orders are invalid because Parliament has never approved them.
They claim that such ‘directives’ can only be applied with ‘consent’ and therefore willpower can be ignored.
However, the 2008 Public Health and Welfare Act authorizes state governments and their chief health officials to apply restrictions.
Section 200 of the law explicitly states that they can restrict movement or ‘give any direction that the officer deems reasonably necessary to protect public health’.
These forces come into play when Prime Minister Daniel Andrews declared a state of emergency by Victoria’s state government on 16 March.
Extra powers take over when Prime Minister Daniel Andrews declared a state of emergency in Victoria on March 16
Section 193 of the law allows to stay in houses put into effect by the Deputy Minister of Health Finn Romanes on July 22.
This directive also covers the wearing of face masks as it states that people can leave their home while wearing only one – however, exceptions.
Victoria also passed its COVID-19 Omnibus (Emergency Precautions) Act 2020 to empower these emergency forces.
Emergency is invalid
Some conspiracy theorists argue that the state of emergency should not be imposed first.
They say they believe there are conditions that need to be established, including the presence of a deadly pathogen across the country.
They declare that there is no ‘deadly virus’ in Australia because they have denied the seriousness of Covid-19.
167 Australians who died from coronavirus and their families begged to be different.
The police are not authorized to execute orders
Most of the video has coronavirus deniers who refuse to answer police questions or provide details.
They make a strange objection to common law, which overrides the state legislation discussed at the end of this article.
Again, the 2008 Public Health and Welfare Act came into force, as it made it possible for healthcare workers to request assistance instructions from the police.
Police officers can usually request someone’s details only if they commit a crime or are believed to be.
However, the Law extends this to investigating, eliminating or reducing public health risk.
As long as the police are warned that refusal to obey will lead to the arrest, police can detain anyone considered a ‘serious risk to public health’.
“We are not afraid to impose fines on those who openly ignore public safety by not wearing a mask,” Victorian Police said on July 26th.
‘The police are working incredibly to keep society safe, and this kind of behavior is unacceptable and unnecessary.’
Police violate human rights
Conspiracy theorists often refer to the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 1948.
