Allegations about illegal production of alcohol were made to Chief Minister Michael Gunner and Police Commissioner Jamie Chalker in a letter signed Concerned Title Holder and dated December 1, 2019.
A copy was sent to the Alice Springs News.
The letter (redacted version pictured) named two men and their positions in an Aboriginal organisation, as well as a homeland.
On April 25 the News made the following enquiry with police media, and we sent a copy of the letter to them: “Have investigations taken place? If so, what was done as part of these investigations, and what were the results.”
We’ve received no reply to the initial email nor to a follow-up on May 1.
Meanwhile police say in a media release they have discovered “further quantities of cannabis destined for remote communities” including some in a tyre tube of a child’s bike (pictured).
“Police estimate the street value of cannabis seized to be upwards of $95,000.
“One person was issued a notice to appear in court and two drug infringements were issued. Two further incidents are being investigated.”
