'Holiday' bikies to spend six weeks in jail
FIVE alleged bikies from Victoria will spend the next six weeks behind bars after being arrested under Queensland's tough anti-bikie laws at the weekend.
Bane Ajajbegovic, 30, Dario Halolovic, 23, Kresimir Basic, 29, Darren Hayley, 33 and alleged Melbourne Hells Angels sergeant-at-arms Daniel Lovett, 30, did not apply for bail on Monday in the Southport Magistrates Court and were remanded in custody until their next court date.
The five men, who police claim are members of Hells Angels or Comancheros, were the first interstate bikies to be arrested and charged under the new Vicious Lawless Association Disestablishment laws which make it illegal for gang members to gather in public places anywhere in the state.
Police will allege that the men were captured on CCTV walking down the street together and had met earlier at a bar during their stay on the Gold Coast.
If convicted, the men face a mandatory six months jail term and possible further jail sentences of 10-25 years under the tough new anti-bikie legislation introduced last year.
They will appear in court on February 17.
