BORDER SECURITY – AUSTRALIA’S FRONT LINE
Monday July 9
An entire flight is suspected of drug smuggling; a sniffer dog’s reaction alerts officers to one of the world’s biggest killers; and an ex-con tries to convince Immigration he’s changed his ways as the fight to protect our border continues in tonight’s episode of BORDER SECURITY – AUSTRALIA’S FRONT LINE.
An entire flight from Vietnam is suspected of drug smuggling. Information has been received that there are drugs on their flight, and no stone will be left unturned as officers try to find the prohibited narcotics. The drugs could be either on the passengers, in their baggage or dumped on the plane. And if that’s the case, the entire plane will have to be thoroughly searched. For the officers, it takes time and a lot of diligence. After a painstaking search, a possible breakthrough emerges with an unlikely passenger…a heavily pregnant woman travelling with a young child. Could this be their drug mule?
A sniffer dog’s reaction alerts officers to one of the world’s biggest killers. The box from the UK is already bursting open but until officers examine the contents they won’t know why the dog has reacted. What is hiding inside?
An ex-con tries to convince Immigration he’s changed his ways. The 65-year-old passenger travelling from the UK has declared his criminal convictions on his incoming passenger card. However, he failed to declare it when he first got his visa to come to Australia. With an attempted murder conviction against him, Immigration has to determine if he will pose a risk to the Australian community. Will the mistake put Ken’s trip down under in jeopardy?
