The Minister for Health, Mr Borthwick, said yesterday that in the next session of Parliament the Government would introduce legislation to freeze the assets - of drug traffickers. _ "The courts ~ill have the power to appoint a trustee to administer the assets from the time the person is being charged, to the trial. If the person is found guilty, then we have the power to hold the assets," he said. Mr Borthwick said ttie confiscated assets would be put into a drug rehabilitation and research fund to assist new and existing drug progra~nes. "We currently have 38 drug rehabilitation 3gencies in Victoria and are puttting up $8 million at the moment. But we will progressively have to give more funding to drug treatm^_nt and rehabilitation," he said. The State Government announced last March that it might consider legislation to allow confiscation of profits from ille~al drug trading, after an Opposition pri- vate member's bill which was introduced earlier this year. The director of the Australian Institute of Criminology, Mr William Clifford, said he doubted that the new legislation would work. "It is one thing to legis- late to get illegally attained assets, i.t is another to put it into operation," he said. Profits _ "They will need a fairly hefty machinery to make it work. By definition, drug t~~ffickers conceal what they make and it will be difficult to trace the profits. 1 APPROVED FOR RELEASE: 2007/02/09: CIA-RDP82-00850R000400050061-5 APPROVED FOR RELEASE: 2407/02/09: CIA-RDP82-00850R000400450061-5 - "With our present standard of policing and criminal justice, the vast amount of police work is on drug users and not criminals. Now the Government is proposing _ legislation for the big traffickers and corporate crime, and must get the police force advanced enough to handle them." Mr Clifford said a survey done by the institute in 1977 has showed that 91.8 percent of drug prosecutions in Austraia were users and possessers and only 5.3 percent were traffickers--most of whom were from the middle range, not the big boys." The legislation foreshadowed yesterday provides for changes to three acts of Parliament dealing with drug abuse. ~ ~he proposed legislation will require doctors and pharmacists to notify the Health Commission it they believe a patient is a drug addict. The medical director of the Buoyancy Foundation, Dr John Poolman, said yesterday that he would "be opposed to giving the name of any drug abuser I treat. It is difficult enough to persuade drug users to seek help, but once you start regis- tering their names it will make them afraid to seek help. Drug users should be treated as sick people, not criminals," he said. Mr Borthwick said that under,the new Drug Poisons and Control Substances Act, it would be an offence to offer or supply a drug of dependence to patients other than for medical treatment. "The doctor will require a permit from the commission to supply a drug of addic- tion to drug d~pendent patients," he said. T.he Victorian medical secretary of the Australian Medical Association, Dr Bill Ryall, said yesterday: "We welcome any legislation which wi11 clarify the doctor's role to .prescribing addictive drugs. "The important thing is that the Minister is seeking to give doctors statutory . protection when reporting cases of drug addiction." The acts to be changed are: --the Poisons Act, which will provide heav~,~ increases in penalties for traffick- ing and using narcotics, and barbiturates, controls on glue sniffing and abuse of cough mixtures, and give the courts greater powers in investigating and dealing with drug offenders. --the Medical Practitioners Act, which will give the medical board increased powera to deal with doctors abusing or illicitly prescribing drugs. --the Alcohol and Drug Dependent Persons Act which will give the courts power to require a person to undergo treatment at a drug assessment or rehabilitation centre. - 2 APPROVED FOR RELEASE: 2007/02/09: CIA-RDP82-00850R000400050061-5 APPROVED FOR RELEASE: 2007/02/49: CIA-RDP82-00850R040400050061-5 The inreased penalties for dr~sg offences include: ~-Trafficking in drugs of dependence such as morphine, opium and i~ts deriva- tives--25 years' jail and/or a$200,000 fine. The present penalt~? is ~5 years' jai.l and/or a $1C'0,000 fine. --Unlawf~l possession of drugs of dependence~--two years' jail and/or a$5000 fine (up from 12 months' jail and/or a$500 fine). --Trafficking cannabis--10 years' ~ail and/or a$50,000 fine (trafficking in . plant) 15 years` jail and/or a$100,000 fine (trafficking in resin). The present penalty for cannabis trafficking is 10 years' jail and/or a$4000 fine. --Trafficking in hallucinogenic drugs 10 years~ ja~1. and/or a$50,000 fine. The present penalty is 10 years' jail and/or a$4000 fine. - Of fences - ~ The proposed legislation will also provide for three new offences. These are trafficking and possession of restricted substances an,d forgin.~ and uttering pre- scriptions aiid obtaining prescriptions for restricted s~bsta~nces by false pre- tences. Each offence carries a penalty of two years' jail and/or a$5000 fine. ~ Mr Borthwick said that under the new act there would be a crack-down on suppliers of glue and other volatile substances. Penalties will be up to two years' jail . and/or a fine of $5000. The head of Victoria's detectives, Assistant ComQnissioner (crime), Mr Paul Delianis, said the proposed anti-drug legislation would hit the traffickers � where it hurt most. Mr Delianis said L-he narcotics business involved huge sums of money and the new legislation would mean that drug criminals would f~ce longer jail terms, and. lose their profits. "If you can take away what they~ have gained and dish out a decent jail sentence, it will have a deterrent effec~ on others," he said. Doctors' Protest - Canberra THE AUSTRALIAN in English 7 Aug 81 p 2 [Text] Doctors say they will be forced to inform on patients under the Vi~torian Government's hard-hitting new drug legis~ation. The General Practitioners Society, the Australian Medical Association and the Doctors Reform Society fear that the ~atient-doctor relationship will be destroyed if the legislation to be introduced i~n Parliament's spring session, is passed. A proposed amendment to the Me~d,~cal Practitioners Act requires doctors to notify the Victorian Health Commissi~o,n yf they have reason to believe a patient is a drug addict. 3 APPROVED FOR RELEASE: 2007/02/09: CIA-RDP82-00850R000400050061-5 APPROVED FOR RELEASE: 2007/02/49: CIA-RDP82-00850R040400050061-5 %J - The president ot the Gen- they u�ould end up on a eral Practitioners Society, police file.

The policeman, Det-Sgt Joe Parrington, has flown to London to continue inquiries into the four-year-old Mackay mystery. NSW CIB detectives said yesterday that Det-Sgt Parrington was working with the Lancashire police. Suggestions made during the "Mr Asia" trial in Lancashire indicated a link between the drug ring~and Mr Mackay's dis- appearance. The Victorian Police Assistant Commissioner, Mr John Hall, told an inquest in Melbourne earlier this year that he thought there were connections . between the drug syndicate, the failed Nugan Hand Bank and Mr Mackay's disappear- ance. When the "Mr Asia" trial ended last month the NSW Premier, Mr Wran, said that the police would fly to Britain to continue investigations into the Mackay mystery. Det-Sgt Parrington, who headed the Mackay investigation,' will try to interview members of the "Mr Asia" syndicate who were gaoled after the trial. The syndicate's boss, New Zealander Alexander James Sinclair, and others were ~ found guilty of murdering one of their colleagues, Christopher Martin Johnstone, who was known as "Mr Asia."

The Manila-Hawaii route, which also uses Cebu as an alternate base, was discovered by PC anti-narcotics agents after the arrest of two Americans and their six Filipino . associates on drug charges. Heroin is a highly-potent narcotic that causes takers to have hallucinations. It is banned, because of its addictive properties and sometimes lethal effects. It is usually passed on to users in powder form for easy sniffing and mixing with liquids taken intravenously. Lt. Col. Jewel Canson of the PC anti-narcotics units also reported the seizure in the past few days of millions of pesos worth of heroin believed bound for Honolulu and $36,300 in cash used by the gang. Canson said two raids were carried aut at the Tradewinds Hotel in Makati and one at the Cebu City residence of Steven Balarama, 30, a businessman reportedly with a drugs case. Held last Aug. 15 at the hotel were two Americans--Glenn K. Koeneg, 20 and Thomas R. Doherty, 28--and five Eilipinos, four of whom were identi- fied as Andrew Steven Parco, Cesar Banares, Javi P. Rubio and Roberto Cervantes. Seized from them were assorted heroin containers, drug kits and $17,000 in 100- dollar bi11s. Three days later, CANU teams from Manila swooped down on Balarma's house in Sto. Nino Village in Cebu City, and confiscated more heroin, drug tools, and $19,300. Balarama also yielded an unlicensed cal. 25 pistol and various let- ters and documents indicating the gang's contacts in Hawaii and the U.S. mainland. Canson said the documents were now being ar.alyzed and ver~fied to esta'ulish the group's operations and their contacts. After his arrest, Balarama was taken to the CANU rehabilitation center in Taguig, Metro Manila, for treatment.

The drug, obtained mainly in the Paraguayan cities of Capitao Bado and Pedro Juan Caballo, was transported in trucks, concealed under loads of wood, or on three planes. Divulging details of the arrests, Police Chief Inacio Carlos Dias Lopes said one of the pilbts involved was Uel Sousa, of Brasilia, an employee of the Superintentency for Development of the Central West, who disappeared with a Bonanza plane, registra- tion PT-CMZ. Among the 28 persons indicted for criminal association in Sapucaia do Sul, Rio, Grande do Sul, were three police officers of the Second Police Precinct in Santos, Sao Paulo. The three men--Nelio Assis Lima ("Kojak"), Tadeu de Campos and Ademar Guerra--accepted a bribe of 1 million cruzeiros from Luis Newton Galeano. The ixiternational marihuana traffic ring was set up in Parana and Santa Catarina by Juca Galeano in late 1978, when he came out of prison in Porto Alegre. Now aged 30, and with several convictions, he is known as "The Man With the White Ghost." The owner of a white Volkswagen, he stole several cars of the same make and color, transferring his own license plate to them and selling them in Paraguay. Judge Francisco Barbosa froze Galeano's bank accounts, including those opened under false names as Luis Massa, Isidro Duo and Luis Carlos Goncalves Filho. These accounts, added to the value of the property of the group, which was seized and impounded, amount to almost 300 million cruzeiros. A 396-hectare estate in Guarapuava, Parana, with 200 head of cattle, was also discovered and legally impounded, as were five 20-hectare farms on which the marihuana was hidden: one in Sao Jose dos Pinhais, Parana; the Melodio Farm, in Biguacu, Santa Catarina; two in Camburiu, Santa Catarina; and the fifth in Jordao, Santa Catarina. Also impounde~ were 5 houses and an apartment in Porto Alegre; a launch; S trucks, 15 automobiles, including a Volkswagen, a Passat and a Brasilia; 5 vans; and 50 million cruzeiros in dollars, guaranis and cruzeiros. 15 APPROVED FOR RELEASE: 2007/02/09: CIA-RDP82-00850R000400050061-5 APPROVED FOR RELEASE: 2007/02/09: CIA-RDP82-00850R000400054461-5 Y;~,,,z;~ f: ii i::;?:.a3i'~`i:xi:.. _ y:::`;:,,::.,,:';:::;;::q:.., i^ i:iit�~'~'.:::'.aw ' _ ~...;r..:~ i;::'.. ;s
