Animals Australia has reportedly contacted the Australian Federal Police regarding the allegations of falsified documents for the Ocean Drover disaster in Pakistan in 2012.
What is interesting is that Wellard provided a media release yesterday saying that they had referred the matters to both police and DAFF last year after they identified irregularities in March and again more recently. We are used to DAFF doing nothing.....but why hasnt this been taken up by the police? What is happening here? Did the police just leave it up to DAFF? These allegations are of a serious criminal nature, not a matter for the Department of Agriculture, which we know do not act when export laws are broken (see DAFF correspondence on VALE website).
