Mongols bikie associates refused entry into Australia

TWO men from America with links to the Mongols bikie gang have been refused entry into Australia after being stopped at Melbourne Airport.

The pair flew into Melbourne on a flight from Los Angeles on Wednesday and were subjected to an examination by border force officers.

During the examination, officers established the men were linked to the Mongols after uncovering bikie paraphernalia, including vests.

Acting ABF Regional Commander Greg Dowse said the ABF is committed to protecting the Australian community from harm.

“These gangs pose a significant threat to our community and are known to be involved in serious criminal activity including drug trafficking and violent crime,” Acting Regional Commander Dowse said.

“Any non-citizen involved with a criminal organisation such as a bikie gang can expect to be identified and targeted by the ABF, have their Australian visa cancelled and then be removed from the country.”

Anyone with information about non-citizens involved with OMCGs or other criminal behaviour should contact Border Watch at australia.gov.au/borderwatch.
