Police swoop on Mascot

A squad of Commonwealth Security men and police swooped on the overseas passengers’ terminal at Mascot airport last night 40 minutes before the Qantas airliner left for London.

It is presumed they were tipped off that Russian Embassy members, or the missing Tass agency correspondent, Mr. Antonov, and his wife, might be leaving — but there was no sign of the Russians. Police Inspector Denton, followed by a Crown Sergeant, walked across the waiting room, followed by Security men, who followed in pairs. The Security men took up positions at the rail and gate leading on to the tarmac, and the inspector walked alone to the plane’s gangway and spoke with two constables and an air ways official.
