FORCED vaccination is not acceptable “under any circumstances”, according to UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, on Wednesday, December 8.
Mandatory vaccination “must always respect human rights and forcing it is not acceptable,” said the 70-year-old via a video message.
“Under no circumstances do people have to be forcibly vaccinated, although refusing to comply with the obligation to be vaccinated can have legal consequences, such as an appropriate fine,” Bachelet said.
Bachelet warned that important rights considerations must be taken into account before making vaccination mandatory, stating that “it must comply with the principles of legality, necessity, proportionality and non-discrimination,” she explained.
The High Commissioner said that the objectives pursued by countries that consider making the vaccine mandatory to fight the pandemic were “of course, of the highest level of legitimacy and importance.”
But she insisted that “mandatory vaccination should only be used when necessary to achieve compelling public health goals.”
“And only when less intrusive measures, such as wearing a mask and social distancing, fail to meet those public health goals.”
Bachelet also emphasised that for the obligation to be “in accordance with the fundamental principles of human rights of equality and non-discrimination,” countries have to ensure the supply of vaccines and that they are truly affordable.
As well as being “sufficiently safe and effective,” she added.
The Covid-19 vaccine is now mandatory for adults in Austria, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan, Indonesia, Micronesia and New Caledonia and is also being discussed in Germany.
But several other countries – especially in Europe and the United States – require vaccinations in certain professional work sectors and have adopted restrictions for those who are not vaccinated such as Poland – who announced yesterday (December 7), that mandatory Covid jabs were to be introduced for some workers in the country along with other new restrictions being brought in.

“Any government anywhere who ties charging money for any reason for NOT doing something that the Counsel of Europe and the Nirenberg Code, mandates never to do so, is either just plain arrogant fools or just plain ignorant of international law, or a bit of both!
And you may know…. the CoE is over 47 Nations and have stated Feb. 27, 2021…. Quote 7.3 with respect to ensuring a high vaccine uptake:
7.3.1 ensure that citizens are informed that the vaccination is not mandatory and that no one is under political, social or other pressure to be vaccinated if they do not wish to do so;
7.3.2 ensure that no one is discriminated against for not having been vaccinated, due to possible health risks or not wanting to be vaccinated;
7.3.3 take early effective measures to counter misinformation, disinformation and hesitancy regarding Covid-19 vaccines;…..

And I really don’t care, if any country is NOT one of the 47 Nations, should get the Legal ramifications of criminal charges. from the following….
And since ALL of the so-called “vaccines” are “experimental” the Nuremberg Codes cover the other “international” codes of conduct of quasi officials, government or so-called health… copied and pasted. . . .
“The Nuremberg Code
The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.
This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, over-reaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved, as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision. This latter element requires that, before the acceptance of an affirmative decision by the experimental subject, there should be made known to him the nature, duration, and purpose of the experiment; the method and means by which it is to be conducted; all inconveniences and hazards reasonably to be expected; and the effects upon his health or person, which may possibly come from his participation in the experiment… . ” [From…. https://history.nih.gov/display/history/Nuremberg+Code%5D
And anyone promoting false information’s about the above Intl. Laws, would aurally be accessories or accomplices, to the above, criminal actions, whether they believe that or NOT!
And all that should be a legal warning promoted by all “reporters” or “news outlets, to say on the side of the LAW!
