New Zealand: Threats to Seize Property If Fines For “Covid-19 Testing Non-Compliance” Are Not Paid
(by Rhoda Wilson | Daily Exposé) – According to an image being shared on social media, a fine of $300 was issued in the first week of January 2022 for Covid testing non-compliance in New Zealand. It violates inalienable rights and freedoms to enforce medical procedures and when courts threaten fundamental rights because of disobedience to diktats it’s an indication the system is not working to the benefit of the people but for someone or something else.
The first fines for non-compliance with Covid-19 testing requirements were issued in July 2021 to 18 border workers. Routine Covid-19 testing had been mandatory for workers in specific roles at New Zealand’s sea and air borders and at MIQ facilities since August 2020.
The Ministry of Health’s director of public health Caroline McElnay said moving from monitoring to enforcement was a precautionary but necessary approach to keep Covid-19 out of the community, the New Zealand Herald reported at the time.
What is more sinister than the penalties for not complying with diktats to use tests – which are unable to detect live infection and are therefore meaningless in controlling the spread of an infectious disease – are the threats noted at the bottom of the penalty notice:
“If you don’t pay or arrange payment the court can:
- issue a warrant for your arrest
- Suspend your driver’s licence
- Seize and sell your property, or take money from your income or bank account
- Report your overdue fine as part of your credit reference check – meaning you may or may not be able to get a loan, credit card or hire purchase
- Restrict your ability to sell property
- Stop you from travelling overseas”
For not taking a test, for not being obedient to the state, a person could lose the right to drive, travel, obtain a credit card or loan and /or may be restricted in selling property. In essence, if a person does not obey, they risk having fewer rights. This has the look and feel of a Chinese-style social credit system.
Carol Sakey, from Wake Up New Zealand, believes the Chinese Communist Social Credit System is already operating in New Zealand.
“The Communist Chinese Regine are ‘anti-human rights’, atheist and opposed to Christianity. Noticeably these are similar characteristics as to Ardern’s Marxist Socialist politically ideology,” Sakey said last year.
It’s significant that Ardern was schooled at the World Economic Forum’s, or Klaus Schwab’s, Forum of Young Global Leaders.
Sakey continued: “Since Jacinda Ardern became Prime Minister of New Zealand our human rights, civil liberties, freedoms have become seriously eroded and our democratic rights targeted. It is because of this I believe that New Zealand has become fertile land to seed, grow the Communist Chinese Credit System.”

“Up until November 2021 the penalty for Covid-19 infringement offences was $300. This was relatively low compared to other similar infringement regimes. For example, an individual bringing an apple into New Zealand through the air border in breach of bio-security legislation may be subject to an infringement fee of $400,” the Ministry of Health published on 3 December.
What is their solution to their “relatively low infringement regime”?
People who do not comply with “Covid-19 orders” will be subject to a “higher penalty regime,” of course. The maximum infringement fee for individuals has been increased from $300 to $4,000.
As the amount of the fines increases the less likely people are able to pay them and so increasing the risk of losing property or being able to borrow money.
Now, what was the World Economic Forum’s mantra again? Oh yes, you will own nothing …
Unfortunately for freedom loving New Zealanders the Government’s Covid regulations do not seem to be going away anytime soon. As well as the ‘Covid-19 Public Health Response Act 2020’ being updated in December, when it should have been abolished, Parliament has enacted or made 11 new pieces of Covid legislation since 31 January 2022 – the latest being on 16 February regarding “requirements for close contacts.”
