New Zealand - The Bandidos motorcycle club has suffered a major blow in its attempts to start a New Zealand chapter, with the paroled killer behind the move recalled to prison for associating with gangsters.
The Sunday Star-Times revealed last month that former Highway 61 member Kelly Raymond Robertson was trying to establish the Bandidos, an American motorcycle club with a large presence in Australia, in South Auckland.
After the article the gang announced on its website that a "probationary chapter" was being formed in Auckland, and probationary president, "Bad News Brown" – believed to be Robertson – posted "we are very proud to be part of the Bandidos nation".
But attempts to start the club here, by "patching over" Highway 61 gang members, hit a stumbling block after Robertson was taken into custody on June 29 on an interim recall order.
He is on parole until February, 2014 for the 2003 manslaughter of of Highway 61 national president Kevin Weavers at the club's headquarters in Manurewa. Robertson stabbed Weavers in the thigh in what the Crown said was a retribution attack, but which Robertson claimed was self defence.
