Australia, Sydney: Drugs and terrorism threat, thousands of airport staff not security-checked, Ice drug link to Sydney Airport staff.

Thousands of airport staff are working without federal police or ASIO clearance, security experts have warned in the wake of a drug smuggler's claim that Sydney baggage handlers were part of his criminal network. Specifically, the Sydney Morning Herald reports that Peter Gardner, a 26-year-old dual Australian-New Zealand citizen who could face execution in China after he was caught last year with 30 kilograms of the drug ice, has given evidence that his flight back to Sydney was scheduled to coincide with the shift of baggage handlers working for the syndicate.  "The situation is wide open for corruption when you have people working at airports who have not been security-cleared," said Mr Henning, the chief executive officer of Homeland Security Asia/Pacific, which consults governments and corporations around the world about airport security.  More information available at this link:,76e5920a-7276-cbdc-88f3-d6a98cd81e6d
