#AceBreakingNews – The AFP is seeking information about 1.1 tonnes of cocaine that was seized on Wednesday (9 November, 2022) from two shipping containers that arrived at Sydney’s Port Botany.

This is a joint media release between the Australian Federal Police and Australian Border Force: Editor’s note: Images available via Hightail.

Australian Border Force (ABF) officers examined the two containers and found about 550kg of cocaine inside each one.

The estimated street value of the combined 1.1 tonnes of cocaine in the containers was $440 million.

The first container ABF officers examined was marked as containing 20 pallets of rat poison and insecticide that had arrived after passing through the Port of Balboa in Panama.

The container was addressed to a business in Macquarie Park, NSW, and sent from Basel, Switzerland.

ABF officers removed 11 packages wrapped in black plastic that were on top of the front row of the pallets. The packages contained black duffle bags filled with blocks of a powdered substance that returned a presumptive positive result for cocaine. 

Each duffle bag weighed about 50kg with an estimated total of 550kg of cocaine seized from the bags.

ABF officers later that day intercepted a second container declared as containing “plastic articles” sent from Texas, USA, to Norwest, NSW.

It also contained 11 packages wrapped in plastic that had black duffle bags inside. The bags contained blocks of a substance that returned a presumptive positive result for cocaine. Officers seized about 550kg of cocaine from the second container.

AFP Detective Acting Superintendent Luke Wilson said:

The tonne of cocaine in the containers would have caused significant harm to the Australian community if it had reached the streets.

“This seizure highlights how the strong partnership between the AFP and ABF is protecting Australians by removing these deadly substances from circulating in our community.”

“Unfortunately Australians are willing to pay sky high prices for drugs such as cocaine and organised criminals around the world are only too willing to feed this appetite.”

“The AFP is committed to working with our partners to ensure these drugs do not enter the country and that anyone attempting to profit from ventures such as this will face justice.”

ABF Acting Commander Trade and Travels Operations East, Elke West, said criminal syndicates continue to use a range of methods in their attempts to smuggle dangerous drugs into Australia.

“This year alone, we have seen attempts to conceal drugs inside everything from cars to tiles,” Acting Commander West said.

“Despite the method of concealment criminals try to use, ABF officers and our valued law enforcement partners continue to remain one step ahead.”

“What we see here is another significant seizure, which goes to show that if you attempt this type of audacious criminal behaviour, you will be caught out.”

Anyone with information about this importation is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via the Crime Stoppers website. You can report information anonymously.

Members of the community can also report suspicious border-related activity anonymously to Border Watch. One small observation could help stop a much larger border crime.

Media are encouraged to include help-seeking information in stories about illicit drugs to minimise any negative impact on people in the community. The following services provide people with access to support and information.

ENGLISH HISTORY: 1837: Westminster Palace Fire building was still Blackened when Queen Victoria was crowned in Abbey

#AceHistoryDesk – When Queen Victoria was crowned in Westminster Abbey in 1837 most of the palace of Westminster was still a blackened wreck after a catastrophic fire three years before.

Westminster Bridge and House of Parliament. Postcard, c.1910
HISTORY TODAY – Westminster Bridge and House of Parliament. Postcard, c.1910:

The competition to rebuild the ancestral home of parliament in the Gothic or Elizabethan style attracted 97 entries and was won by Charles Barry, a brilliant architect in his early forties.

Barry was a master of planning, organisation and dealing with bothersome committees and he had designed some Gothic buildings, but he was not at heart a Goth. For that he enlisted Augustus Pugin, a genius in his twenties, a devout Roman Catholic and a fanatic for Gothic as the only proper architecture for a Christian nation. Georgian neo-classical architecture he denounced with the most passionate ferocity as pagan, the architecture of temples to the Greek and Roman gods.

Between them Barry and Pugin created the efficiently planned, sumptuously pinnacled and massively impressive edifice which stands on the bank of the Thames today, a monument to 19th-century patriotism and self-confidence.

Much of the detail, interior and exterior, all the way down to doorknobs and inkstands, was designed by Pugin, who prepared detailed drawings by the thousand. It took thirty years to build, far longer than the six years originally estimated, and both Barry and Pugin would die before it was finished. The cost, estimated at £700,000-plus, swelled to nearer £2 million in the end.

Work on the river wall began in 1837. The first stone of the new building was laid by Barry’s wife in 1840. The masons went on strike in 1841. Bitter and protracted arguments developed with the heating and ventilation specialist, Dr Reid.

The original plans, necessarily produced in a tearing hurry, had to be modified. Modifications attracted carping from committees of the House of Commons, who were patiently seen off by Barry and the commissioners of the Board of Works. Different people who were appointed to keep an eye on different aspects of the work changed their minds frequently and often did not agree with each other. E.B. Denison, the future Lord Grimthorpe, who designed Big Ben, was a nightmare to work with and denounced Barry in characteristically intemperate terms in The Times. Steady support came from Prince Albert, who presided over a committee vetting the choice of paintings and sculptures for the new building, though this was yet another body of opinion for Barry to cope with. No painters or sculptors were appointed to the committee, which decided that the works of art were to be on subjects from English history and literature.

As the work went on, Barry was often seen climbing about on the scaffolding, with the ebullient Pugin laughing and capering cheerfully at his side. Barry called him his comet.

A remarkable team of craftsmen was assembled, Mr Thomas in charge of stone carving, Mr Minton for tiles, Mr Crace for ornamental painting, the firm of Hardman for stained glass. The new House of Lords was used from 1847, the new House of Commons from early in 1852. There were complaints about its small size and the acoustics. That year, poor Pugin, who was always wildly over-the-top, was declared hopelessly insane and put away. He died in September. At last in November the queen came in stately procession to enter through the Victoria Tower and open Parliament for the first time in the new building.

Barry was soon knighted, but his last years were eaten up with wrangling over his pay, which had been based originally on the six-year estimate for the building operations. The Treasury displayed the utmost determination, ingenuity, tergiversation and meanness of spirit in trying to cut his fees. He died in 1860, aged 64, and was buried in Westminster Abbey. The building was completed during the following decade by his son, Edward Middleton Barry.

#AceHistoryDesk – The Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1900 is widely regarded as the most brilliant event of its kind. The Métro with its spectacular Art Nouveau stations was opened for it.

Inauguration Day, Paris Exposition, 1900
HISTORY TODAY: Inauguration Day, Paris Exposition, 1900:

So were the imposing Pont Alexandre III and two new art galleries, the Grand and the Petit Palais – as well as the Gare d’Orsay, which looked like a huge palace of art itself.

The exhibition was not remotely ready when it was formally opened by the President of the Republic, Emile Loubet, on April 14th, 1900. Most of the 76,000 exhibitors were late, the Métro was still being dug, the rehanging of the Louvre galleries had not been completed, the spectacular Palais de l’Electricité had no current, and the press had much fun with the fact that there was little for the first day’s 150,000 visitors to see but building sites and mud.

Once the show got going, however, the attractions were breath-taking. More than forty nations showed themselves off in pavilions beside the Seine. Lutyens designed the British pavilion, which had Morris & Co stained-glass windows and was hung with landscapes by Turner and Constable, and portraits by Reynolds, Gainsborough and Raeburn.

There was an Egyptian souk, a Swiss Alpine village and a Japanese pagoda. There was a giant ferris wheel and a moving pavement more than two miles long. An electric train toured the grounds. There were displays of motor cars and photography and the early moving pictures. There was Lalique glass, Japanese silk, Parisian couture, miracles of Scandinavian design, and an ominous armaments pavilion. The technology exhibits so thrilled the Italian artist Giacomo Balla that he afterwards called his three daughters Luce (Light), Elettricita (Electricity) and Elica (Propeller).

Special emphasis was placed on painting and sculpture. The Exposition Centennale displayed French art since 1800, with work by David, Ingres, Courbet, Renoir, Monet, Degas, Rodin, Cezanne and Gauguin. Twenty-nine countries exhibited in the Exposition Décennale in the Grand Palais, the biggest collection of contemporary art ever assembled up to that time.

More than 6,500 works by more than 3,000 artists of all ages and all tendencies were on show – a thousand were French, 251 came from the US, 223 from Great Britain, 177 from Japan, 157 from Russia and Finland, and so on down to two from Mexico and one from Nicaragua. There was work on show by Roualt, Klimt, Whistler and the youthful Picasso, who paid his first visit to Paris to see his picture in the Exposition. Rodin, whose ‘The Kiss’ was an eye-catching exhibit, shrewdly organised a separate, highly successful exhibition of his own in the Place de l’Alma. The final day of the Exposition drew more than 350,000 visitors, bringing the final total to over 50 million in seven months.
