The Australian Federal Police are investigating after suspicious packages were delivered to international consulates and embassies across Melbourne and Canberra.

At least 13 consulates in Melbourne have been affected, along with currently unnamed embassies and consulates in the ACT, the AFP has confirmed.

“The packages are being examined by attending emergency services. The circumstances are being investigated,” the official statement reads.

Workers are reportedly being evacuated across town, among the embassies impacted believed to include the American, British, Indian, Italian, New Zealand, Korean, Egyptian, Pakistani, Greek, Spanish, Japanese, Thai and German consulates after hazardous materials were discovered just before 2pm.

On the Emergency Victoria website, there have been more than 13 “Hazardous Material” alerts listed since 2pm.

Looks like someone's gone to a bit of trouble. Not sure the Kiwis should be in there, they're 'greener' than us and don't cause us any harm. That could also be what they want us to think...

Better to have Kiwis in Melbourne than the riff raff from interstate. :D

More than twenty packages now in both Melbourne and Canberra. Lot of trouble, this could be a dry run to test the response.

I am more concerned over the political implications behind this. There have been rumblings on the Politics board over something like this happening to take the focus from the poor polling currently.

So I hope its real and yet I dont.

Asbestos Julie Bishop is most likely from her defending CSR in court.


*not making any claim against if she should or should not.

Can you reiterate what this means ?

That the person who sent the asbestos had this in their mindset. My hypothesis is he is of disturbed mind and only he knows in his mind why he conjured the act of sending asbestos to foreign consulates. Not unless he has mesothelioma?
The fact that Asbestos Julie is Foreign Affairs Minister and her nickname given by political commentators may have been the derivative of his actions.

Its an odd substance to send in the mail to foreign consulates. The fact that he targeted foreign consulates and Asbestos Julie is Foreign Minister lead me to believe maybe he had some delusion that it would bring some desired outcome.

What has been the outcome yet? It certainly made the media.

Has he been subject to psychological assessment?

We need more information about his background.
