A major policing operation planned for Melbourne’s CBD over the weekend has been cancelled after a backlash over plans to include Australian Border Force (ABF) officials in the crackdown.
Earlier, the ABF had said it would be checking people’s visas on the streets of the city centre as part of the operation, which also involved Victoria Police and other agencies.
