The Queensland Police Service (QPS) has reviewed the circumstances surrounding the arrests of five people at a port facility near Bowen on Monday.
As a result, the QPS will withdraw all charges against a 28-year-old Victorian man and four male French nationals, aged 29, 30, 32 and 39, when the matters are brought before Bowen Magistrates Court again on July 30.
The charges against two Victorian women, aged 20 and 22, will still proceed.
The decision to withdraw charges follows careful consideration of the circumstances including QPS policies and procedures.
Representatives for the five people have been notified of the QPS decision this afternoon.
