Bandidos member loses fight with police over gun licence and 'gang' label

A bikie gang member has lost his appeal against the revocation of his gun licence, in what police hope could be a landmark case.

In at least two previous cases,  involvement with a gang has been held by the courts to be irrelevant when determining a person's fitness to hold a firearms licence.

Wade Victor Innes, from Wairarapa, had held a firearms licence since 1997. But police revoked it last July, claiming he had twice failed to update his address and had been seen wearing a Bandidos motorcycle club vest.

Parliament has listed the Bandidos as a criminal-affiliated gang, and police have described them as a worldwide organised crime syndicate that set up in New Zealand in 2012.

However, Innes argued at Masterton District Court that he was a family man who simply belonged to weekend bike club.

Bikie in court: Bandidos national president Jason Addison gets reference from former mayor

(VIDEO)--AN OUTLAW motorcycle gang boss has received glowing references from a former mayor during a court case in Queensland.

Bandidos national president Jason Murray Addison, 51, pleaded guilty today to ripping off Queensland Transport over registration fees for two expensive Harley-Davidsons.

The minor charges were freshly laid today when earlier theft and fraud charges were dropped because of a lack of police evidence.

Mr Addison, who runs a masonry business making headstones and tombstones, received written support from an ousted Victorian mayor who described the gang boss as a “good man” who devoted his time to mentoring young people.

Supreme Court refuses to hear appeal in motorcycle gang massacre

OTTAWA — The Supreme Court of Canada will not hear appeals from three men convicted in a 2006 motorcycle gang massacre in southern Ontario.

Marcelo Aravena, Brett Gardiner and Frank Mather were among six men convicted of murder in the deaths of eight members of the Toronto Bandidos motorcycle gang in a deadly shoot-out at a farmhouse west of London, Ont.

The Crown argued at trial that the killings were the result of internal strife within the Bandidos organization.

Aravena, Gardiner and Mather and two others argued at appeal that they should have been allowed to raise the issue of duress at trial.

The Ontario Court of Appeal dismissed their case a year ago.

As usual, the Supreme Court gave no reasons for refusing to hear the appeal.

Video shows shooting outside Yarraville clubhouse of Bros bikie gang

A gunman who seriously wounded two members of the Bros outlaw motorcycle gang outside its Yarraville clubhouse remains on the run, but detectives from the armed crime squad and Echo taskforce have obtained video footage of the attack last month.

Closed-circuit television cameras captured the shooter sprinting up Campbell Street in an industrial precinct of Yarraville, after alighting from a dark-coloured car in nearby Kent Street. 

Dressed in a grey hoodie, the man stops outside the clubhouse, assumes a shooter's stance and blasts off several rounds from a handgun. According to an audio recording, seven shots are fired in total.

More than 50 gang members and associates had attended a function on the night, with several congregating outside.

A 38-year-old man from Altona and a 37-year-old man from Herne Hill were treated by paramedics at the scene, after the shooter ran back down Michael Street before fleeing in a car.

Timeouts aren't just for kids: Hells Angels told to take anger management courses after skirmish with rival bikers

Three Edmonton members of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club were ordered to take anger management courses Wednesday after pleading guilty to assault charges relating to a “dust-up” with rival bikers.

Eduardo Bartolozzi, 36, was handed a 60-day jail sentence to be served on weekends and placed on probation for a year after pleading guilty to assault causing bodily harm for a Feb. 21, 2014, attack on Warlocks Motorcycle Club member Jason Bryanton at a tattoo studio and laundromat in Drayton Valley.

Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Vital Ouellette noted Bartolozzi punched Bryanton about 25 times and “cowardly” stomped on him while he was on the ground. He said it appeared on a video of the group assault that was played in court that he “clearly lost it.”

Ouellette ruled it was an aggravating factor that the incident was a group attack, but said the assault resulted in Bryanton only suffering a black eye and some facial cuts.
