Barker v Commonwealth of Australia [2016] QSC 310

Geoff Barker had approximately 7 standard drinks at the bar before arrival at the airport in Port Moresby to board the Air Niugini flight PX025 to Brisbane in November 2011.

The specialist pipeline welder denied he had 3 more drinks on the flight but accepted he drank a “coffee cup of whiskey and coke” poured for him by his travelling companion from a duty-free bottle purchased at the airport. According to witnesses, on arrival at Brisbane shortly before 5 pm, his speech was slurred, “his face was red, his eyes were bloodshot and watery and he appeared unsteady”.
