The Australian Federal Police and government agencies are awash with corrupt employees who may help their gangster relatives get major drug shipments into the country, according to a bombshell report.
Family or ‘clan’ members of gangsters are allegedly working within the AFP and state police forces to the compromise the security of the borders.
The report suggests some are ‘sleeper’ agents who are waiting to aid illegal importation.
The AFP intelligence report, seen by True Crime Australia, claims the people of concern are blood relatives of the employees or from the same clan, typically from Balkan nations.
Enablers cited as the ‘next generation’ in the report, are allegedly entering the criminal milieu.
‘The effective succession plans for the continuation of ‘the business’ provides a seamless network for importation,’ the report concludes.
An AFP intelligence report revealed the national enforcement body are wary of the vulnerability of Australia’s maritime industry
The report also refers to concerns maritime-related trafficking of biotechnology or weapons could pose significant risks to Australian national security if not exposed.
Polaris Joint Waterfront Taskforce, a multi-agency group, was created in 2010 to target crimes on the waterfront and their supply chain.
Nick Bingham, a now-retired NSW Police detective superintendent who was the former head of Polaris, said he was not aware of the AFP report.
But working as the boss of Polaris for two years he was not surprised by alleged ‘familial corruption’.
The report noted the weaknesses of various importation points and their processes, from logistics to transport
He said Polaris really opened his eyes ‘to the corruption that was out there in relation to logistics and supply companies and some of the government agencies, or people within government agencies, that were involved.’
‘There were a whole raft of people — very, very small minority of people from within some of these agencies though — that the syndicates need to facilitate these imports.’
Budgetary restrictions eventually led to Polaris being shut down.
