Foreign Gypsy Joker bikies and associates banned from Australia after arriving at Perth Airport

Five international bikie gang members including three Gypsy Jokers and two associates of the club have been banned from entering the country after being stopped at Perth Airport.

Key points:

  • The bikies were stopped and questioned before having their visas cancelled
  • The men were held at an immigration detention centre before being sent home
  • The ABF says it is intent on disrupting the activities of outlaw motorcycle gangs

 

The men all arrived in Perth in the past week to attend an event being held on Saturday night to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the outlaw motorcycle gang.

But the Australian Border Force (ABF) said they were all stopped and questioned before having their visas cancelled because "they presented a risk to the health, safety or good order of the Australian community, or a segment of the community".

Hells Angels in P.E.I. for club member’s funeral

(photo gallery) --- THREE RIVERS, P.E.I. - Island RCMP and Charlottetown police are on high alert this weekend with Hells Angels members from across the country in P.E.I.

There was a heavy presence of Hells Angels members, as well as several other motorcycle clubs, at a “celebration of life” for fisherman Ian Roulston Kennedy in Three Rivers Saturday.

Kennedy was a full-patch member of the Hells Angels.

Cpl. Andy Cook, the RCMP’s provincial outlaw motorcycle gang coordinator, said law enforcement stayed close to the funeral for public safety reasons.

“The funeral was for a member of the Hells Angels and we’re there for public safety and also for intelligence gathering to do with a large number of Hells Angels who were here in the province,” he said.

‘Star witness’ in Gypsy Jokers Motorcycle Club racketeering, murder case is man who dealt fatal blow, lawyer says

The star government witness in the torture-style killing of a former Gypsy Jokers Motorcycle Club member is the man who wielded the fatal blow with a baseball bat strike to the head, a defense lawyer said in court Thursday.

The prosecution’s case largely rests on the words of the actual murderer, Tiler Evan Pribbernow, who has cooperated with the government, said attorney Matthew Schindler, who represents one of the co-defendants in the case.

Schindler called it “outrageous” that prosecutors would allow Pribbernow to plead guilty to only racketeering to leverage his testimony against others. The deal allows Pribbernow to avoid accountability for the killing and save his own life by avoiding a potential death sentence, the lawyer said.

“Tiler Pribbernow did it because he’s a lunatic. That’s why,” Schindler said. “We’ve seen one witness statement, and that statement is the statement of the murderer. … He killed this guy.”

Former Bandidos bikie John Paul Pennie to be deported to Ireland

An Irish ex-bikie who has lived in Australia since he was six years old, but has spent time behind bars, will be deported after his visa was cancelled and his appeal rejected in the Federal Court.

John Paul Pennie, who moved to Australia with his parents in 1980, was sentenced in July 2015 to four-and-a-half years in a WA prison for charges including possessing methylamphetamine with intent to sell or supply and wilful destruction of evidence.

In January 2016, a delegate of the Home Affairs Minister cancelled Pennie’s visa, ruling he did not pass the character test due to his criminal record which included being a former vice president of the Bandidos bikies.

After the minister refused to revoke the cancellation, Pennie took his case to the Federal Court but on Thursday his application was rejected.

Pennie had claimed he feared a lack of medical care for his health issues in Ireland and that he would be homeless.
