Bureau of Immigration (BI) officers at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) have barred from entering the country an Australian national who is an alleged member of a dreaded international motorcycle gang.

BI port operations chief Grifton Medina said 37-year-old Daniel Anthony Stalley was stopped at the NAIA terminal 2 last November 25 upon arrival from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Medina said he was denied entry after the Australian authorities alerted the BI about his impending arrival in Manila.

“Information about him and his affiliations were included in our database. This prompted our offices to immediately exclude him and book him on the first available flight to his port of origin,” Medina added.

Lawyer Rommel Tacorda, BI-Interpol chief, Stalley disclosed that alien is a member of the US-based “Hell’s Angels” gang that has been linked to organized crime and violent activities in various countries.

“Our counterparts informed us that Stalley and other gang members were involved in illegal activities, including assault, weapons possession, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct,” Tacorda said.

Stalley previously made headlines in Thailand after allegedly assaulting two Thais in 2016.

Numerous police and international intelligence agencies have classified Hells Angels as one of the “big four” motorcycle gangs, along with the Pagans, Outlaws, and Bandidos, that are notorious for carrying out widespread violence and organized crime activities.

Last May, the Hells Angels was banned in the Netherlands, making it the first country in the world to outlaw the club.

In Australia the gang is said to have around 250 members and 14 chapters and is one of some 35 outlawed motorcycle clubs in the country.

Its activities there reportedly included drug trafficking, prostitution, armed robbery, arms trafficking, fencing and murder-for-hire.(Jun Ramirez)
