Criminal bikie gangs are already setting up shop in Victoria after relocating from other states which have introduced or intend to introduce new laws

20:48 |

"Criminal bikie gangs are already setting up shop in Victoria after relocating from other states which have introduced or intend to introduce laws banning these gangs," Mr Baillieu said."(Premier) John Brumby and (Attorney General) Rob Hulls have turned Victoria into a haven for criminal bikie gangs by refusing to enact laws that would allow these gangs to be declared illegal," he said.

Geelong has faced murders, multiple shootings, an alleged kidnapping, fire bombs and alleged brawls over the past several years as rivalry between gangs, including the Bandidos and the Rebels Motorcycle Group got out of hand.

The Coalition's law changes would see the Chief Commissioner of police or director of public prosecutions able to apply to the Supreme Court to have a bikie or other gang declared a criminal organisation.But Mr Hulls yesterday said the state already had stringent laws for dealing with bikie-related crime."Of course we will continue to liaise with the police in regard to any changes that are needed," he said."But police have made it clear that you need to target criminal behaviour not just proscribed groups because they happen to wear leather jackets."
The pledge comes as NSW police prepare to lodge their first application to have one of the state's bikie gangs declared a criminal organisation.South Australia last year declared the Finks bikie gang a criminal organisation, but in September its Supreme Court ruled that the laws were invalid.
