Australia detains NZ bikie again despite court win

A New Zealand-born motorcycle gang member who won a landmark case in Australia's highest court yesterday has been arrested in Perth.

Lee Tepuia, a 39-year-old carpet layer, spent 22 months in immigration detention after losing his visa on character grounds for being a member of the Rebels motorcycle club.

Mr Tepuia has lived in Australia since 2005 and has no criminal record there.

He won the ruling at 10am yesterday, walked free from a Perth detention centre half an hour later, then an hour after that learned the government had cancelled his visa again.

He was arrested about 10.15am Sydney time today.

Mr Tepuia had packed his bag and gone out on the street about 6am to let police parked outside know that he would go quietly, said someone close to the family who witnessed the arrest.

Immigration minister’s new law will keep accused bikie gang members out of Australia

(video)--A NEW federal immigration law will keep exiled former Rebels bikie boss Alex Vella and the father of rising AFL star Dustin Martin out of ­Australia.

Immigration Minister Peter Dutton rushed through an amendment to the ­Migration Act to stop Malta-based Vella, Shane Martin and up to 20 others whose visas have been cancelled, from ­re-entering the country.

They had been kicked out based on secret information from police and intelligence services.

The High Court found yesterday that Mr Dutton had been wrong to kick out two men accused of being Rebels bikies, AJ Graham and ­Mehaka Lee Te Puia.

New Satan’s Choice biker club considering shutting down after harsh Facebook criticism

The new club is taking a Facebook slamming by online friends of GTA Hells Angel Donny Petersen.

A group of Ontario bikers is having second thoughts about calling themselves the new Satan’s Choice Club after a harsh Facebook condemnation of their club by a senior Hells Angel.

The new club is taking a Facebook slamming by online friends of GTA Hells Angel Donny Petersen.

“Those who take a patch from a respected club, one that has history, courage, who has paid their dues, died, done time and all the rest . . . like what are you thinking?” Petersen himself wrote.

“You are pretenders,” Petersen wrote.

Petersen’s comments received resounding approval from his Facebook friends.

The old Satan’s Choice was on the road for four decades before it ceased to exist when it was absorbed by the Hells Angels in December 2000.

A Hells Angels motorcyclist was shot driving through Tri-Cities. Now no one is talking

(video)-- After a Hells Angels member from California was shot in the leg while passing through Pasco, witnesses clammed up and refused to share anything with detectives.

Two weeks later, state investigators are hopeful people will come forward to give some clues into what happened that Aug. 18 afternoon on Highway 395.

The wounded motorcyclist, Dennis Donahue, 52, has since been released from the hospital. And five of his fellow members, who were arrested on suspicion of criminal mischief with a deadly weapon, posted bail and have not been charged.

Hells Angels hold fourth public gathering in Quebec

The Hells Angels are holding their fourth public gathering in the province of Quebec in as many weeks. Today, bikers are expected to meet in the small village of Saint Zénon, in the Lanaudiere region. 

The Journal de Montreal reports the event is organized by the "Brotherhood," a group of Hells sympathizers that includes chapters from Quebec; Monteal; the North-Shore; the Montéréie and Shawinigan. 

Hells' members are expected to leave Laval in the early afternoon on Saturday and then proceed to the small auberge, Le Cabanon de Saint-Zénon. 
One of the owners says the Hells have been meeting there for three years and that he has never had any problems.

High-profile B.C. Hells Angel released after cocaine charges stayed

For years, friends of incarcerated Hells Angel Larry Amero have pasted “Free Larry” stickers on their Harleys to demand his release.

On Wednesday, they finally got their wish after a judge in Quebec stayed organized crime and cocaine importation charges against the prominent B.C. gangster.

Prosecutor Philippe Vallières-Roland confirmed to Postmedia News that the charges were stayed because of the length of time the case took to get to trial.

Last year, the Supreme Court of Canada set a 30-month time limit for prosecutions at the provincial supreme court level to be completed, except in exceptional circumstances.

Amero is the highest-profile B.C. gangster to have his case thrown out under the so-called Jordan Rule.

The 40-year-old biker has been in jail since his arrest in Montreal in November 2012 as a prime target in Québec provincial police’s Project Loquace, which resulted in more than 100 arrests.

Subsequent searches at several locations in New Brunswick also resulted in the seizure of a high power rifle with a silencer, a loaded handgun, a quantity of drugs and drug paraphernalia. Police also seized a full-patch Hells Angels jacket, Hells Angels "support club" patches and "Support 81 Maritimes" clothing.

Rebels bikie who shot dead girlfriend strikes deal to change charge

A Rebels bikie who shot dead his girlfriend in a Russian roulette-style killing could be set free in just six years after striking a deal to downgrade his murder charge to manslaughter.

Brandon Osborn, 37, knew the gun was loaded with one bullet when he put it to Karen Belej’s head and pulled the trigger at their home near Mildura, in north-west Victoria, on May 1 last year.

Ms Belej, 31, a much-loved local council worker, was killed instantly.

But in a deal with prosecutors, Osborn had his murder charge downgraded to manslaughter, claiming that when he pulled the trigger he never intended it to discharge.

The Crown had no evidence to prove his theory wrong beyond reasonable doubt, and accepted a guilty plea to the lesser charge.

Supporters of Ms Belej, who was a passionate domestic violence campaigner and White Ribbon Foundation ambassador, cried in court as Osborn learnt he’d be eligible for parole six years into a nine-year sentence.

Bad Judge Recused

According to multiple sources, McLennan County Judge Ralph T. Strother has been removed from presiding over the trials of at least three defendants in the Twin Peaks Biker Brawl case.

The recusal was ordered by retired judge James Morgan in response to three motions filed June 30. Those motions were filed by Dallas attorney Clint Broden who represents defendant George Bergman; Galveston attorney and former district judge Susan Criss who represents Rolando Reyes; and Austin attorney Millie L. Thompson who is defending Thomas Landers.

Bergman’s motion accused Strother of doing “everything in his power to accommo- date the State’s wishes and turn them into realities.”
