Organised Crime Legislation

Over the past months in the ACT there has been increased Outlaw Motorcycle Gang (OMCG) activity resulting in a series of violent incidents that have endangered our community.  Much of this is a result of the ACT Government’s failure to introduce ‘anti-consorting’ laws consistent with those in NSW.

The Canberra Liberals are preparing to table laws along the lines of those in NSW in order to stop the ACT being a ‘safe haven’ for OMCG violence. You can view the proposed laws here: http://www.legislation.act.gov.au/ed/db_56598/default.asp

I fear that without taking this action it is a matter of time before someone is injured or killed.

I am keen to make sure that this legislation is effective and has appropriate safeguards and I value community input.
