Police Watch Rebels MC National Meeting

Police out in force for Rebels MC  National Meeting

CANBERRA, AUSTRALIA (October 21, 2016) Police from the ACT's outlaw motorcycle group and the AFP's National Anti-gang Squad will be out in very large numbers this weekend monitoring the Rebels MC annual meeting in Canberra for any illegal activity.

A series of small groups of Rebels club members rolled into Fyshwick on Friday ahead of their national meeting at their Wollongong Street club house on Saturday.

While ACT Police would not say how many officers would be on the streets for the meeting, members of the Taskforce Nemesis, traffic, general duties and specialist response teams were given a watching brief for the weekend.

A police spokeswoman said they would be monitoring for any intimidating, anti-social or illegal activity, and ensuring Rebels members were compliant with road transport laws.

She said police were not expecting any disruptions to traffic over the weekend, but people may see small groups of Rebels "riding around the Capital over the weekend".
