Biker Bob Pammett gets year in jail for perjury in Peterborough

LINDSAY - Former Outlaws, Loners and Bandidos Motorcycle Club member Robert (Bob) Pammett will spend the next year in jail for lying when he took the stand during the assault trial of fellow biker and son-in-law Pierre Aragon in April 2015.

The 66-year-old waved goodbye to two supporters, including his common-law wife, as he was taken into custody just before 1 p.m. Tuesday following the decision from Madam Justice Lisa Cameron in Lindsay's Ontario Court of Justice.

One year in custody was “the most appropriate” sentence, the judge said, explaining how it balances all of the factors in the case. Deterrence and denunciation were primary in the sentence, while rehabilitation was also a factor, she said.

“There is no getting around the fact that perjury is a very serious offence.... It strikes at the heart of the administration of justice,” she said, pointing out how Pammett had a chance to reconsider what he had done “and stop playing games, but he didn't.”

Former bikie deported from New Zealand 'cut ties to Rebels in 2009'

Australian with no criminal history handcuffed and flown home because federal police intelligence tied him to gang he left seven years earlier after ‘nightmare’ of intimidation
 

A truck driver and his family say their first overseas trip led to his “unjustified” arrest and deportation because Australian federal police intelligence tied him to a bikie gang he left in harrowing circumstances seven years earlier.

David Paul, who travelled with his family to New Zealand to watch a rugby tournament in February, was handcuffed on arrival, held in a cell then flown home.

Paul has no criminal history but was refused entry to New Zealand because of AFP advice he was a member of the Rebels motorcycle club, immigration and police officers in Auckland told the family.

Most charges dismissed in alleged motorcycle gang stabbing

Criminal charges have been dismissed against one man and all but one charge dismissed against another in connection with a stabbing involving alleged members of the Hells Angels and Mongols motorcycle gangs.

Felony charges of assault with a deadly weapon other than a gun, participating in a criminal street gang and being an accessory to a crime were dismissed against 55-year-old Michael Blackwood, court records show.

Assault with a deadly weapon and gang participation charges were also dismissed against Jonathan Smith, but he’s now charged with committing a crime on behalf of a gang. Both men are accused of having connections to the Hells Angels.

Police alleged Smith, 40, and Blackwood were in a red pickup following an unnamed member of the rival Mongols on eastbound Rosedale Highway the afternoon of Jan. 26.

Hells Angels Motorcycle Corp suing Redbubble Limited over use of logo on T-shirts

THE Hells Angels bikie club is in the Federal Court today fighting for the right to continue to sue a hipster T-shirt retailer over wares it sells online.

The Browns Plains-based Hells Angels Motorcycle Corporation (Australia) — declared a criminal organisation by the Queensland Government in 2013 - has sued claiming their feelings have been hurt, and they are “distressed” by their fearsome bikie logo appearing on T-shirts.

The T-shirts were sold by Melbourne company Redbubble Limited, which plans to raise $30 million by floating on the Australian Securities Exchange on May 17.

The club’s corporate entity, which is wholly owned by unemployed Brisbane president Mark Nelms, is represented in court this morning before Justice Andrew Greenwood.

The US arm of the club, which holds the worldwide trademark rights to the flying skull logo, is also a party in the lawsuit.

Bikie claims self-defence in appeal against 12-year jail term

A Mongols bikie who shot a ­former Bandido and a bystander at a Gold Coast mall has mounted a High Court challenge against his conviction, claiming that his trial judge did not correctly guide the jury on whether he acted in “self-defence”.

Mark James Graham, 30, was sentenced to 12 years’ jail after shooting a knife-wielding rival, Jacques Teamo, and a female shopper at the Robina Town ­Centre three years ago.

The matter has now reached the High Court, which has agreed to hear an appeal from Graham.

His legal team is arguing that the trial judge failed to give sufficient guidance to a jury about self-­defence.

The shooting, which resulted in non-life threatening injuries, happened after a chance ­encounter ­resulted in a con­frontation­ ­between Graham and Mr Teamo in front of the latter’s children inside a Sony store.
