You need to go to the AFP. I'm so sorry for what these scum have done.

I'm not sure if you saw my edit to my previous post, so I'll post it again in hopes it can give you another option.

ETA: actually, get her into rehab ASAP! Put her in the nearest hospital that has a rehabilitation program (not residential home) and demand that she be admitted as a security patient/client. What that means is that her name will not be recorded on the admittance sheet or patient board and if anyone rings up asking if she is there or what room she has they will be told that no patient or that name is there. Only visitors pre-approved will be allowed to visit her. It's probably actually the safest place for her right now.

My hospital uses security patient codes generally for people who are victims of domestic violence, but the nurses and admin staff and doctors take the code very seriously and will definitely be a formidable roadblock for anyone wishing her harm.

Very good idea!

To the OP.

This situation is very serious and you need to seek professional help.

I would seek a federal level help.

There is a phone number supplied by Immigration to report fraud on their website.

1800 009 623
That would be a start.
If you serious fear for your lives then that only indicates how serious the situation is and you really need to seek professional legal help.

If the group responsible is an organized racket, then it could go deep.

That would involve protective custody of your granddaughter and changing addresses to protect parties closely and intermediately affected.

Don't forget this is Australia- there are people here that care and do want to help.
But you need to seek the right avenue for assistance.

Good luck and stay strong.

If immigration are going to investigate, then they need names, addresses and phone numbers to start an investigation and I would think a whole lot more.

Call immigration again, give them all the help they ask for and your grand daughter may get help. Sit on your hands and when the gang does get caught, she could end up being caught up as just a participant in a serious criminal matter and dealt with accordingly.

I am thinking of closing this thread, as there is nothing much really else to say than what everybody has already said. Go to the Federal police or immigration, they deal with these type of matters and then do what they ask you to!

As much as Australians do not like to admit it, there is corruption in our police force/s, other government agencies too. My guess is even in the immi department.

There have been a few examples in the last 12 months including customs.

The longer immigration takes and the more it cost, only makes it more profitable to cheat the system (Immi increased costs a lot and blown out process times) and results in very organized crime get more involved.

With that said it is not right!

I see that as involved family to this situation you have 3 things you are legally and morally required to do.
1) Report you granddaughters drug addiction and get her checked into a clinic.
2)Report all you know including all names to a Senior AFP officer including that you believe police information was given out to this group.
3)Report it to the IMMI department.

Write all people you contacted and all info you have onto a letter post it to a friend and have them keep it unopened for you, if anything should happen have them take unopened letter to media.

First your granddaughter needs help or that stuff will kill her.

Best of luck.
