07 Sep 2007 The TV comedy [The Chaser's War on Everything] pranksters charged for breaching APEC's $250-million security blockade with a bogus motorcade say police gave them permission... "The police only detained the Chaser motorcade when it was turning around and after Chas Licciardello emerged from a car dressed as Osama bin Laden." The comics left authorities red-faced yesterday after the security breach only metres from the Sydney hotel where US President [sic] George W. Bush is staying. Eleven people were charged, including Licciardello, who sat in the back of one of the cars dressed as bin Laden, and Morrow, who posed as a security guard running alongside. The 10 men and one woman were last night charged under new APEC laws on entering a restricted area without justification. Police are furious about the prank.
