Dutton and Morrison’s latest attack on the rule of law

Media Release
Nick McKim 22 Nov 2018

Scott Morrison and Peter Dutton’s plans to leave people stateless is yet another attack on the rule of law and people’s fundamental rights, Greens Justice spokesperson Nick McKim says.

“This is another dangerous step down the road to a police state. It undermines the rule of law and the presumption of innocence,” Senator McKim said.

“Leaving people stateless was even a step too far for Tony Abbott. It is a disgrace that this government could even consider such a move.”

“Dutton has repeatedly shown he cannot be trusted with the massive powers he already has.”

“I urge Labor to stand with the Greens and vote down this draconian legislation.”
