Allan Kessing, who in 2007 was convicted of leaking reports about security at Sydney Airport to the Australian newspaper, told reporters on Friday that it was widely known the airport had problems with security.
"It is not possible, it is simply not credible to say that nobody knew there was this extent of corruption," he said.
"Anybody who has the slightest experience of this area knew there were problems.
"The fact that they haven't been acted on until now begs the question, why?"
Mr Kessing - a former Australian Customs officer - wrote two damning reports on Sydney airport security in 2003.
He was convicted four years later of having leaked the reports to media. He had faced a maximum two years jail but was instead handed a nine-month suspended sentence.
"It's important that Justice James Woods is given access to those reports."
Mr Kessing said the reports advocated a range of measures to boost security, including stricter background checks for airport staff and more scrutiny of customs officers by their superiors.
It emerged on Thursday that two customs officers and five members of the public have been charged following a joint investigation by law enforcement agencies into corruption and drug smuggling at Sydney airport.
The investigation on Thursday prompted the establishment of a reform board, headed by Justice James Wood, to ensure customs is clean.

The reporting of crime is allegedly supported by the authorities (including the law enforcers - the police) which is promoted through the corporate media via advertisements encouraging the masses to report crime to 'Crimestoppers', a police hotline.
When people report crime from the corporate political or legal arenas, or other positions of authority or governance, the story is very different.
The person or persons are then accused, and they are the ones persecuted by authority and summoned by the courts, and not the people the allegations are made against.
Schapelle Corby is a classic case of a victim of crime in the corrupt drug smuggling campaign.
Corby had the be the sacrificial lamb, as there would be too many high ranking officials implicated.
The corrupt legal system is testimony to this.
