Or was he killed by his captors? I have avoided 'hotel quarantine' primarily with this fear in mind. Once you are in the custody of the State, and are refusing a COVID test, for example – thereby adding an extra period to your incarceration whilst also identifying yourself as part of that facility's small percentage of subversives – you are at their mercy and I certainly don't think it's too far-fetched to suggest that people in this category are placed on some kind of surveillance run or watchlist after they leave. It would be an ideal way of knocking off anyone that the Government's friends want dead, too (including the bikies – see 'NSW Police Facilitate Bikie Meth Trade, According to Watchdog Chief' at Sydney Criminal Lawyers). We have already seen some evidence of a brutal, militarised atmosphere at these 'quarantine facilities'.
