Live Stream the SA Supreme Court Judicial Review of the EMA



 
In March 2020, the SA Police Commissioner declared a state of emergency about COVID-19 in South Australia under the South Australia Emergency Management Act. This granted him very large and extensive powers to make orders relating to COVID-19. The state of emergency has been continued since that time.  These emergency powers are ordinarily only used when there is a natural disaster, like a flood or earthquake. They are meant to be temporary to restore the status quo. For this reason, these powers are not granted to the Premier, any Ministers, or even any member of Parliament. As a matter of law, they are granted solely to the Police Commissioner, who is not required to even consult with the Government of the day about them.

The case challenges the continuation of the state of emergency and the Commissioner’s power to continue to make these laws. The applicants ask the Supreme Court of South Australia, the highest Court in the State, to declare them unlawful.

Trial is set for four days. 17th & 18th March 2022 for evidence and perhaps further evidence and closing arguments on 24th & 25th-if required) of March 2022.  An application for the trial to be live streamed has been made by the legal team for the plaintiffs because the case has significant public interest and far reaching implications for the citizens of South Australia and arguably for the citizens or Australia. All citizens should have access to justice, and the courtroom can't hold all of us. 


You deserve access to cases like this. Senate Estimate hearings are live streamed, Federal Court hearings are live streamed, why not Supreme Court matters where the State is the respondent. 


Sign our petition today and send a message to the Courts Administration Authority that live streaming is essential in this matter.
