New law to give police power to destroy bikie HQ walls

POLICE in Victoria will be able to tear down fortified walls and other defences built around bikie clubhouses under new draft laws.

Police will be able to destroy fortifications used to conceal criminal activity in gang properties under a state government crackdown on outlaw motorcycle groups.
Deputy Commissioner Graham Ashton said police had already identified the club houses of six outlaw motorcycle gangs, with the feuding Bandidos and Hells Angels at the top of the list.
Under proposed new laws, which will be introduced into state parliament today, police can apply to the Magistrates' Court to have fortifications such as night-vision cameras and reinforced walls removed from gang property.
Mr Ashton said the laws would help police keep their "foot on the throat of organised crime groups".
