Police investigate fake CCTV cameras around G20 buildings

AS world leaders touch down in Brisbane ahead of the G20 Summit, police are busy working to find who installed a number of fake CCTV cameras through parts of the city.

Officers were forced to remove the light projectors, disguised as security cameras, from around buildings near the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre over the last few days.

It’s been reported the devices could have been controlled by a mobile phone and were designed to project anti-G20 slogans on surrounding walls.


Police believe the devices were installed a while ago but have no idea who installed them.

They say they impose no danger to the public.

It comes as internatioal leaders start to touch down at Brisbane Airport ahead of the weekend’s event.

South Africa’s President was greeted by Premier Campbell Newman early this morning.

Yesterday, a Russian cargo ship full of vehicles for President Vladimir Putin arrived in at a special G20 terminal set up at the international airport.

Mr Putin is expected to arrive later in the week.
