The Constitutionality of Queensland's Recent (Legal) War on Bikies

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


After a violent incident involving motorcycle clubs, the Queensland Parliament passed a suite of measures to attempt to deal with the perceived problem of crime involving members of particular motorcycle clubs. These include declaring particular clubs to be outlawed, criminalising membership/association, supercharging penalties where members of such clubs commit crimes, permitting the use of secret evidence, and removing the right to silence. This article suggests there are major constitutional due process concerns with such measures.
