Schapelle Corby & The Criminal QANTAS Baggage Handlers/FOI Application

Letter to the AFP, re the above:

Dear Sir/Madam,

Please see this attached FOI form. I believe the application is in the public interest, and does not pertain to my personal issues.

On the 8th of October 2004 (the same day Schapelle Corby flew with Australia's national airline), QANTAS baggage handlers at Sydney Airport were involved in smuggling 10 kg of cocaine, in the luggage of an innocent QANTAS passenger - unless (of course), the drugs sprouted legs (and a mind of their own), and walked into the country of their own accord. Further, QANTAS baggage handler "Tom" had an extensive criminal history, and a known history of trafficking in marijuana (as well as other drugs). However, no QANTAS baggage handlers were ever charged with this crime. This is in sharp contrast with the UK, where they tend to reward corrupt baggage handlers with long jail terms, not buckets of cash.

Therefore, I think the Australian public deserve to know what formal investigations the AFP carried out, in relation to all the QANTAS baggage handlers on duty (Brisbane & Sydney), on the 8th of October 2004 - plus all AFP investigations relating to QANTAS security manager Alan Conwell, plus all AFP investigations relating to to any other (potentially), corrupt airline staff working on that key day.

Please supply me with any and all AFP documentation (and records), relating to those key investigations. I also assume relevant CCTV footage would have been a key element in your necessary inquires.

Regards, Kim
