Sprlyan v Wyborn [2019] WASC 227

In Sprlyan v Wyborn [2019] WASC 227 the appellant was convicted of refusing to participate in a roadside drug test, claiming his DNA was his property. He contended that the Queen of Australia does not have authority and the Royal Style and Titles Act 1973 is invalid, as pursuant to the Australian Constitution s 2, any sovereign not ‘in the sovereignty of the United Kingdom of Great Britain’ is prohibited. Further, that judges oaths are invalid if sworn to the State of Western Australia or the Queen of Australia; and as such the magistrates did not have jurisdiction to preside at any hearings relating to the charge or to preside over the trial.
