ACT Policing’s Criminal Investigations have conducted extensive inquiries, which included executing a number of search warrants in NSW.
During the execution of the search warrant at the Greenpeace headquarters in the Sydney suburb of Ultimo on Thursday, July 21, police seized a number of evidentiary items which are still being reviewed.
The investigation is continuing as police hope to identify further people who may have been involved, or assisted in the commission of the offences.
The women are expected to face the ACT Magistrates Court at a later date.
