Why Did The AFP Stop The Largest Ever Ice Haul Being Substituted With Fake Drugs?

Today we read the Australian Border Force intercepted the 'The largest ever ice haul discovered on Australian soil'. The drugs were hidden in speakers from Thailand.


'The 1.596 tonnes of ice equates to about 16 million drug deals, with an estimated street value of $1.197 billion.
Another 37 kilograms of heroin was also found, which has a street value of about $18.5 million.' Notice that's in the thousands of millions of dollars?


At the same time the Border Force and the AFP announced this massive drug haul the Federal Police 'pleaded with anyone with information to come forward.'
'Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000' Fair Dinkum!

But isn't it good policing practice to replace intercepted drugs with decoy drugs in order to arrest the crooks taking delivery of the shipping containers?
Why wasn't this done with this massive bust? The AFP arrested a mountain of drugs but no drug traffickers. Why?

Were the AFP too busy raiding journalists to substitute the drugs and put the containers under surveillance? Isn't organised crime more important than the neo-Stalinist raids on the media just to track leaks from the same government that pays the AFP's wages?

Isn't it time the Australian Federal Police stopped being Scott Morrison's personal KGB agency and actually caught high level criminals without pleading for the public's help?

Inside Tasmania will update this story as more information comes to light. In the meantime we have a lot of drugs in custody while the traffickers are free to 'have another go'. Why is the Australian public being held to ransom by what is effectively a 'secret police' force?
