G’day, kufr! “Baggage handlers face inquiry,” from The Australian, with thanks to danlew:
THE Australian Crime Commission is to hold a royal commission-style probe into corrupt baggage handlers and other workers in the nation’s airports, federal Justice Minister Chris Ellison said.
Senator Ellison yesterday called for an “urgent and detailed” briefing after he and Transport Minister John Anderson admitted they had not seen a damning report detailing rampant corruption at Sydney airport until it appeared yesterday in The Australian.
He had also asked the ACC, which has the same powers as a royal commission, to “conduct a national intelligence investigation in relation to criminal activity at our major airports”.
The report by Australian Customs detailed a situation of near anarchy at the airport, with corrupt baggage handlers, many with criminal convictions, and Muslim extremists infiltrating airport security.
The federal Government, Qantas and Sydney airport chief executive Max Moore-Wilton yesterday all denied hearing of the report until it was detailed in The Australian.
Right on top of the case, then, I see.
