Oz man Graham Leslie White - 'It can’t be right' - update

Australia's Environment Protection Authority has laid 12 charges against 58-year-old Graham Leslie White over illegal stockpiling of toxic waste.

White was jailed for 6 months in 2019 after cops found a machine gun, handguns and semiautomatic weapons.
Family members wept in court during sentencing, with one woman in tears, who said: “It can’t be right.”
Properties used as illegal chemical dumps in Melbourne’s north and the West Footscray factory were packed with drums of chemicals before it was burned to the ground. It is alleged the illicit stockpile of millions of liters of toxic waste was deliberately torched.

The warehouse in West Footscray that burned down was one of the worst industrial blazes in decades.

Graham White has high level bikie connections with the HA.
Christopher James Baldwin has a very long history of doing business with key figures of the Hells Angels.An inspection at the warehouse in early August found no signs chemicals were being inappropriately stockpiled. In the weeks after the inspection, a series of large trailer trucks were observed entering the West Footscray property. Emergency responders reported seeing hundreds of drums inside the burning building.

Testing has found high concentrations of acetone, benzene and other industrial solvents and toxins. All smoke was toxic.

Christopher James Baldwin
There is a strong connection between White and the owner of the West Footscray factory, Christopher James Baldwin.

In October 2018, White pleaded guilty in Melbourne Magistrates Court to possessing two or more unregistered firearms, possessing cartridge ammunition without a licence or permit, and possessing a prohibited weapon without exemption or approval.
