The 17 passengers from New Zealand who flew into Melbourne last night are still in Victoria, authorities say.
The passengers flew to Sydney as part of a new trans-Tasman quarantine-free travel bubble, and then caught a connecting flight to Melbourne.
Victoria is not accepting international travellers due to the coronavirus crisis and the passengers were stopped at Melbourne Airport last night.
But Premier Daniel Andrews said the passengers left the airport within minutes of arriving.
"Our officers have absolutely no power to stop someone, to detain someone in those circumstances, particularly given they were coming from a very low virus part of the world," he said today.
Victorian authorities were still waiting to get the passengers' arrival cards from the Australian Border Force, Mr Andrews said.
"Because we don't have the cards, I can't tell you whether they are New Zealand or Australian citizens," he said.
Victoria's Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) said its authorised officers did not have legal authority to detain travellers on arrival.
Police Deputy Commissioner Rick Nugent said the passengers were in Melbourne and not under any detention orders.
He said police would visit the passengers later today for welfare checks.
More to come.
I hope Peta Credlin investigates the Chinese Belt and Road Initiative arrangements with Daniel Andrews, Vic Govt. next.
So far, nothing has been revealed about the deal done with the CCCP, the China trips by Andrews, etc, and without involving our federal Govt, IMO, is treason.
So, come on Peta Credlin, work your straight shooting , no Bs, take no prisoners investigative journalism on Andrews again regarding the chinese B&RI.
Gladys needs to be sacked immediately the facts are that her relationship are now public , the latest B.S. is that her and Daryl only had a relationship on weekends . The hooked nosed hag does not have any credibility her close personal ties to a proven criminal means she is no longer fit to hold any political office .
Agree totally......and the same ruler of justice and public opinion should be cast over the whole andrews govt in Victoria
Gladys isn't the only one with internal affairs in the past
if we raise the standards do we raise it PERMANENTLY , that would be the only fair way ( and include all the same-sex affairs and those with under-age partners )
terrible optics BUT enforce it spasmodically would look even worse ( and leave extra room for black-mail )
Gladys hid a conflict of interest from the public that would have excluded her from office if it were made public , did she deceive voters all by herself or was she helped by the LNP party??? the hags total lack of accountability is an insult to every taxpayer in N.S.W. .
but she did nothing that hasn't been done before whether in state or federal government and THAT is the problem
acceptable .. not to me but if you evict her when does the systematic search start because i very much doubt she is unique even among currently elected politicians
does the party back up their ally .. almost always and that is your next problem
remember Franca Areana just wanted to cleanse the NSW parliament of PEDOPHILES and look what happened to her ( surely she wasn't the only non-pedophile parliamentarian at the time )
Mike Baird is the only N.S.W LNP politician who has shown any integrity in decades , the LNP is rotten to the core finding an honest LNP politician to replace Gladys will be mission impossible.
Last I heard Victoria had one covid infection , last summers bushfires caused countless lung problems that many people are doomed to die from .Covid diverts attention from critical issues like climate change that should be being debated , politics should be about policy not personalities.
No one knows who was responsible for hiring private security.
From ACA or 60 Minutes program couple of months ago, showed a bloke recruiting security personnel using Gum tree/ face book.
Surely from this, they would know who organised the fiasco.
Couple of months ago on ACA, 60 Minutes showed a bloke contracted by someone in Govt to recruit security personnel using FB/Gumtree.
Surely from this, they would know who organised this corrupt fiasco.
