Foreign Minister Julie Bishop has urged the international community to do everything in its power to protect the world from the “terraced threat”.
In an address to the United Nations Security Council, Ms Bishop said that Australia had done its part this week by raiding “suspected terraced houses” in Sydney and Brisbane.
The Foreign Minister said that Australia woud keep working with its international partners to identify other “terraced hideouts”.
“The international community cannot turn away from the terraced menace any longer,” urged Ms Bishop.
Terrace schools next target
Prior to her Security Council address, Ms Bishop told journalists that the Federal Police was stepping up its efforts to tackle “the terraced network in Australia”.
Ms Bishop expressed particular concern at reports that there was a high-profile Terrace school operating in Brisbane.
“To hear that wealthy Brisbane families are spending thousands of dollars to send their children to Terrace is simply appalling.”
Ms Bishop said that terrace farming, terrace furniture and terrace gardens would also come under government scrutiny.
