No Qantas-Corby link, says Keelty
November 28, 2005


AFP Commissioner Mick Keelty
AUSTRALIAN Federal Police (AFP) Commissioner Mick Keelty says there is no link between the arrest of three former Qantas employees drug trafficking and the case of convicted drug smuggler Schapelle Corby.

Three men have appeared in court accused of being part of a sophisticated drug syndicate with access to secure areas of Sydney Airport and items that had not been cleared by Customs.

The trio, who have been sacked by Qantas, was arrested on Friday after investigations by the AFP's new Joint Airport Investigation team, which also involves Customs officers.

Corby's mother Rosleigh Rose said today she was glad to see airport staff had been charged over drugs offences, saying: "This is what we have been trying to say all this time".

Corby is serving a 15-year sentence - reduced from 20 years - in a Bali jail after being caught in possession of 4.1kg of cannabis at Denpasar airport in October last year.
