Bali tells bikies to make tracks
A BIG meeting of the Finks bikie gang planned for Bali has been thrown into chaos after Indonesian officials, at the behest of Australian police, stopped and banned two members, including the national president, from entering the island.
Alleged Finks member Troy Albert Fornaciari was banned from entering Bali on Friday afternoon after he was stopped at the airport and told he was not welcome in Bali.
His entry refusal comes after Finks national president Kosh Radford was stopped from entering Bali last week.
Both were flown back to Australia on return flights.
The Sunday Mail understands that the Finks outlaw motorcycle gang was planning a big meeting in Bali, and more than 100 members and their families are either there or on their way.
The choice of Bali is a bid to thwart strict anti-bikie laws in Queensland and NSW which prevent bikie gang members from consorting together.
Indonesia has no such antibikie laws.
The Finks now have an Indonesian chapter and it was seen as a safe environment for the gang to meet, with the trip doubling as a family holiday.
But it is understood that police anti-bikie gang strike force Raptor is working to dis- rupt their lives, hence the notifications to Bali police of their planned arrivals in town and notification of the meeting.
Fornaciari had arrived in Bali on a Garuda flight from Sydney on Friday afternoon.
Ngurah Rai Airport Immigration chief, Ari Budijanto, said Fornaciari had been rejected entry to Indonesia because it was alleged he could disturb security and public order in Indonesian territory.
Fornaciari was flown back to Sydney on the next Garuda flight on Friday night.
It comes after the Finks national president Kosh Radford, aka Koshan Rashidi, was refused entry to Bali on Wednesday night after he arrived there with his wife, baby and mother-in-law.
The Bali refusals appear to be part of an ongoing law-enforcement strategy to disrupt the lives of bikie gang members.
Some Finks members are now believed to be stranded in Bali after their accommodation was mysteriously cancelled.
The Bali police general crime unit director, Sang Made Mahendra Jaya, said his office had been informed by Australian Federal Police that members of the Finks motorcycle gang were attending an event in Bali.
Australian bikie gangs have gained a foothold in Indonesia, setting up local chapters and partnering with well-known Indonesian gangs in Bali.
