(Australia): Australian Federal Police issue warning to travellers about drugs in luggage.
The Commissioner of the Australian Federal Police writes: The reality is that if people are caught bringing drugs into Australia they can expect to be charged. Since 2013, the AFP has arrested 39 people at Australian airports for smuggling drugs into the country, who have claimed they were scammed. Claiming ignorance of drugs hidden inside your luggage does not provide immunity from criminal charges. In addition to the risk of being charged with serious offences upon their return to Australia, people who use transit countries on their way home are also risking more severe penalties. In the majority of our neighbouring countries there are no mitigating circumstances for drug trafficking offences. Be on the lookout for warning signs not only for yourself, but also for your loved ones. More information available here:
