Bandidos bikies' sentences increased after Gold Coast brawl

THUMPERRRR's picture

Five Gold Coast bikies involved in the notorious 2013 Broadbeach brawl have been given longer sentences after a successful police appeal - although they won't spend any time behind bars.

The Bandidos members - including president Adam White, vice-president Ahmed Kaddour and accused instigator Jaques Teamo - were convicted last year for taking part in the violent gang fight that erupted outside a packed Broadbeach restaurant.

The brawl between Bandidos and Finks members led to a statewide crackdown on bikies and the nation's toughest anti-gang legislation - the Vicious Lawless Association Disestablishment laws.

Ringleaders White and Teamo originally received four-month suspended sentences for their pivotal roles in the stoush while Kaddour was given a $1200 fine.

Police lodged an appeal against their punishment and two others on the grounds they were "manifestly inadequate".

On Friday, Queensland's Court of Appeal ordered Teamo and White's sentences be increased to 13 and 12 months respectively but they both remain wholly suspended and won't be sent to jail.

Kaddour was given a seven-month sentence, and Daniel Santa-Maria and Sanjin Delalic six months each but all were also wholly suspended.
