"In 2005, an AFP/NSW Crime Commission operation resulted in the arrest of members of another cocaine syndicate who were using baggage handlers to remove imported cocaine from Sydney Airport."
Quote from the Submission of The Australian Federal Police, to "The PJC-ACC Inquiry into the Adequacy of Aviation and Maritime Security Measures to Combat Serious and Organised Crime," November 2009.
. . . of a type that has attracted very severe sentences in the UK:
So, does your email of the 15th November 2010 mean (please pick an appropriate option, or options):
1. The QANTAS baggage handlers in question were investigated and cleared of any crime, either during investigations, or after court appearances (which would appear to contradict the 2009 AFP submission to the Government inquiry, detailed above)?
2. The QANTAS baggage handlers were investigated, charged and convicted re these crimes (which would appear to contradict the assertion from Steve Jackson, detailed above, and the complete lack of any press reports re their court appearances)?
3. It was not the responsibility of the AFP to investigate their crimes, and/or charge them?
4. Drug importation, into Australia, via corrupt airport staff, is not the responsibility of the Australian Federal Police?
5. You corruptly conspired with QANTAS to keep these criminals out of court, and out of the headlines?
6. There is some other explanation (please elaborate)?
I look forward to your further explanation, plus (in the first instance), a prompt formal acknowledgement of this correspondence.
PS - As you probably understand by now, these very serious policing and security matters (as detailed above), are also under consideration by multiple experts in the field, internationally, who will be providing comment and interviews for the new book.
