Human rights and advocacy groups have welcomed the request, calling it a "wake up call to the government".
Plus in the ABC radio interview, they were basically saying that the UN Committee said that all Australians have a right to return home and that the entry caps are not a proportionate health response.
However the Govt now has 8 months to respond. So not exactly a speedy outcome.
And also the radio interview today, the lawyer from University of Canberra also mentioned the related issue of the potential illegality of the exit ban/restrictions.
