The global cocaine business is controlled by cartels worth tens of billions of dollars – and in that world, Australia is drawing more and more attention as a particularly lucrative market.
That’s because a gram of cocaine sells in Australia for as much as $400.
But the public rarely gets an insight into this enormous sector of criminal enterprise. How cocaine gets into the country, where the money goes and the violence involved is often veiled in secrecy. Until now.
Today, Four Corners reporter Mahmood Fazal on his investigation into the cocaine trade and how he came face-to-face with the people responsible for it.
You can watch Mahmood Fazal’s investigation on the ABC’s Four Corners on iView, youtube, or ABC TV from 8:30 tonight.
Guest: Four Corners reporter Mahmood Fazal.
