PandaCast | A Conversation with Sanjeev Sabhlok

22 March 2021

PANDA’s Nick Hudson in conversation with Sanjeev Sabhlok, moral philosopher and economist based in Melbourne, Australia. After many years in civil service in both India and Australia, Sanjeev left the civil service to protest the Victorian government’s pandemic policies.

Sanjeev Sabhlok arrived in Melbourne in December 2000 from India where he had been a member of its permanent senior civil service. In Melbourne he worked first in the Victorian WorkCover Authority as an executive followed by 15 years as a senior economist in Victoria’s Department of Treasury and Finance. On 9 September 2020 he resigned from the Treasury to protest the pandemic policies of the Victorian government.

Thereafter he wrote a book, The Great Hysteria and The Broken State that shows how the government’s approach to the coronavirus pandemic is inconsistent with the science and the laws. He has also lodged a complaint with the International Criminal Court for what he believes are crimes against humanity in Australia, and has recently taken steps to organise a political movement to resist Australia’s totalitarian public health policies.

Sanjeev has a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Southern California and writes regularly in Times of India and more recently in Australian newspapers. He is also author of a book, Breaking Free of Nehru and in 2013 founded India’s only classical liberal political party, Swarna Bharat Party, which is committed to liberty. He is an Australian citizen since 2005 and an overseas Indian citizen which provides him residency but not voting rights in India.

Here’s Why a WHO-Led Pandemic Treaty is a Terrible Idea

by Dr David Thunder | The World Health Organization has proposed that the international community negotiate and eventually ratify an international “accord” or “treaty” that would effectively consolidate the position of the WHO as the pre-eminent public authority responsible for guiding and coordinating international pandemic responses.
