What will the scrapping of Queensland’s anti-bikie laws mean for organised crime?

Research output: Contribution to journalOnline ResourceResearch


The Queensland government has announced it will introduce a new suite of laws designed to tackle organised crime on a much broader front than just targeting bikies. This follows the release on Monday of a report that recommended the state’s contentious anti-bikie laws be replaced with more workable ones.

So, what will this mean for organised crime in Queensland – and more broadly in Australia?

The Queensland laws have been held out as a model for dealing with organised crime. Other states, such as Victoria and South Australia, have rushed to implement similar anti-association laws.
