Another AFP bungle. Woman jailed wrongfully
Aug 19th, 2019 at 12:16pm
 
The AFP is a bunch of clowns who are rejects from other Australian police forces.

This follows on from the case of an Iranian citizen of Australia being detained in Thailand based on wrongful advice to Thais from the AFP.

The AFP is a clown organization.

AFP admits role in Queensland woman Yoshe Taylor's Cambodian prison hell
Australian Story Exclusive by Belinda Hawkins
Updated about 3 hours ago

This Australian was duped into smuggling heroin via a love scam. Nearly 6 years later, she's home

When Yoshe Taylor left Brisbane for Phnom Penh in late 2013, she had no idea that the Australian Federal Police were tracking her.

Key points:
Ms Taylor was sentenced to 23 years in prison for drug trafficking
The AFP says the tip-off was part of "normal police-to-police communications"
Ms Taylor was freed after serving almost six years in Cambodian prison
She thought she was on her way to starting a new job selling Cambodian arts and crafts for a reputable dealer.

But the man she knew only as Precious Max, and whom she had trusted with her friendship, had other ideas.

Not long before Ms Taylor left, the Australian Federal Police formed the view that he was a part of an international drug syndicate operating out of Phnom Penh, and that she might well be his mule.

The AFP has confirmed it tipped off Cambodian police that the then 41-year-old primary school teacher was on her way to Phnom Penh after she passed through immigration at Brisbane airport in September 2013.

In a case reminiscent of the Bali Nine, the tip-off led to Ms Taylor being stopped at Phnom Penh airport on her return journey.

She was shocked when just over 2 kilograms of heroin was found in her bag. Devastated when she was sentenced to 23 years in a Cambodian jail.

But when the AFP learnt that other Australians caught in the same scam had been exonerated in Australia, it did not update Cambodian authorities.

Ms Taylor's lawyer, Alex Wilson, said it was unfortunate the information was not provided as soon as it was available.

"It could have avoided her staying in that prison," she said.

What did the AFP know?
So why did the police suspect Ms Taylor, and why did they not follow up after evidence she might not be guilty came to light?

The AFP said it first heard of Ms Taylor after it arrested two Australians on home soil 15 days before she left Brisbane on her ill-fated trip.

'I'm not the only one to be tricked'
'I'm not the only one to be tricked'
How did an ordinary mother of two from rural Queensland become the target of an international drug smuggling syndicate? Yoshe Taylor spent almost six years in a Cambodian prison for a crime she didn't commit after she was scammed online.
The AFP also said those arrests were chance pick-ups in different Australian airports that just happened to be on the same day, coming from the same location with the same amount of heroin.

A Melbourne woman, who only wants to be identified as Kay Smith, told the AFP her new fiancé Precious Max had given her laptop bags to bring back to Australia for a friend. They contained 2.1 kilograms of heroin.

A man arrested at Perth Airport told investigators he had been tricked into carrying a similar amount of concealed drugs by a woman he had met online, who later turned out to be Precious Max's accomplice, a French national named Charlene Savarino.

The Cambodian National Police (CNP) was not aware of Ms Taylor or her connection to Precious Max until alerted by its Australian counterpart. The CNP then located Ms Taylor in Phnom Penh. ...

They didn't catch anyone ? No mention of what happened to the guy who was the real drug smuggler, bet it was nothing.

The AFP have been a disgrace on this type of process for many years now with no sign of improvement. They should not be subjecting Australians to corrupt third world law when it is unnecessary.

No I'd say he graduated with full honours from the Aussie kid pinning not small handed clit-wondering faculty.

Anyway, he looks a bit like you, and he stole John Smith's brother's underwear.
