AFP opens Mex­ico of­fice

Sunday Tasmanian - - News -

A NEW Aus­tralian Fed­eral Po­lice of­fice will open in Mex­ico in an ef­fort to tackle global drug syn­di­cates.

Jus­tice Min­is­ter Michael Keenan will travel to Mex­ico City this week to open the new fa­cil­ity where Aus­tralian of­fi­cers will work with Mex­i­can and Colom­bian au­thor­i­ties to try to stop the global trade of metham­phetamines.

Mr Keenan said Aus­tralia had seen “sig­nif­i­cant seizures” of metham­phetamine from Mex­ico in re­cent months and the amount of co­caine trad­ing was also a con­cern.
