Check out our latest media release. It would seem that AQIS has accommodated the exporters and that correct
procedure has not been followed. Australian laws exist to try and protect animals on voyages but in this voyage, it would appear that those laws were broken and that both AQIS and the exporters let animals travel without the necessary animal care professionals.

So the Federal Govt permitted the exporter to remove the vet from the ship? Exceeding their authority or what?

Following release of documents under an FOI request and posting of those documents on the DAFF website, DAFF informed VALE there was no stockman on board for the trip from Fremantle to Singapore. This is despite the legal requirement for a stockman to be onboard for every live export voyage. DAFF claimed the exporter had said the AAV would be replaced by a stockman in Singapore, but did not respond to VALE's request for evidence that a stockman really did go onto the ship for the voyage from Singapore to Malaysia (ie after Dr Lloyd Reeve-Johnson was removed).

The export and import in any country should be thoroughly checked and guarded so that no offence and anti-social activities are carried out. I am glad to read the share and I will come again for more. Good work and keep it up in the future.

Always the laws are bending for some people. It is happening all around the world for sure. For protecting animals we need to ensure that the laws are kept as straight and obeyed by all. The Australian authorities have to be little more vigilant
