‘A bit unusual’: Anti-terrorism expert questions AFL’s decision to ditch Grand Final parade on security concerns
Perth will not host a traditional Grand Final parade after the AFL decided to scrap the event, reportedly because of terrorism concerns.
There will instead be a ticketed event in the lead up to the first ever Western Australian AFL Grand Final.
Anti-terrorism Expert Peter Moroney has labelled the decision as “a bit odd”.
“It’s a bit unusual,” he told Gareth Parker on 6PR Breakfast.
“For them the to take those steps I would have to say there’s got to be some sort of intelligence that’s been provided to them.
“It would seem odd to just do it on a whim.”
