A Bangladeshi national has been charged with importing a commercial quantity of liquid methamphetamine from Fiji into Australia.
Australian Federal Police (AFP) and the Australian Border Force arrested the man at Sydney International Airport after he arrived on a flight from Nadi.
They allege the man was carrying $500,000 of the drug in bottles of body oil.
He has been charged with:

- Possessing a commercial quantity of an unlawfully imported border controlled drug – methamphetamine, contrary to section 307.5 of the Criminal Code 1995.
Australia’s maximum penalty for these offences is life imprisonment.
