Anyone found breaching Covid rules in South Australia could be punished with two years jail as new laws are set to sail through state parliament this week.
LABOR PREMIER Peter Malinauskas orchestrated a shock cross-bench deal with support from the Greens and SA Best, but the opposition and civil liberties groups have voiced their fury at the move.
“Labor did a quick backroom deal because Peter Malinauskas is desperate to have the power to lock up (people) and dish out huge Covid-19 fines at the drop of a hat,” a Liberal Party spokesman told the Adelaide Advertiser.
Under the Public Health Act legislation, individuals who breach isolation requirements, or ignore vaccination mandates and mask rules in high-risk settings such as hospitals or nursing homes, can be fined $20,000 or face two years in prison.
Businesses found to be breaking those rules can be hit with a massive $75,000 fine.
