Bandidos mourn after NSW boss killed

The execution-style killing of an Australian bikie boss has sparked outpourings of grief from Bandidos chapters as far afield as Singapore, Denmark and Norway.

Shane De Britt, the NSW Central West chapter president of the Bandidos bikie gang, was found on his rural property south of Wellington with a fatal gunshot wound to the head.

Police say there were no witnesses to the killing and they're now investigating links to outlaw motorcycle gang activity in the area.

Bandidos chapters from Denmark, Germany, France, Singapore and Italy have released tributes to Mr De Britt, who also went by the nickname "Wock".

"It is with a heavy hand and heartfelt regrets that I write to express our deepest condolences for the tragic passing of our brother Bandido Wock," a chapter from the French resort town of Antibes wrote on the Bandidos' website.

No bikies convicted under 'toughest' laws in the country

Not one bikie has been convicted in the past year under Queensland's "tougher" consorting laws aimed at cracking down on gangs involved in drugs, guns, child exploitation and fraud.

Despite 389 official warnings for consorting, only three people were charged last financial year, the Queensland Public Interest Monitor revealed.

Those people were still before the courts.

Since the Palaszczuk government's "stronger and tougher laws" came into effect in 2017, two people have been convicted of habitual consorting.

The law banned outlaw motorcycle club members from wearing club colours in public and made it illegal for a person to habitually consort with two or more recognised offenders after being warned by police not to do so.
