Bikie-related death

We are extremely concerned by a bikie-related death at a popular restaurant in Canberra.

We have long been clear that Canberra needs anti-gang laws to disrupt violent bikie crime and help prevent the avoidable loss of life and the risk to families and innocent bystanders.

The fact is that since the ACT Government failed to introduce anti-consorting laws more than a decade ago, we have seen a 4-fold increase in bikie gangs and as a result a bikie war has unfolded across Canberra.

Anti-gang laws have been backed by the High Court, police and other experts on the frontline of law enforcement.
