A barrister says bikie gangs are uniting to challenge the South Australian Government’s anti-gangs legislation.
New laws to take effect from July will let authorities restrict association and declare gangs illegal.
Barrister Craig Caldicott says groups are putting aside differences and plan to fund a High Court challenge.
“A number of the groups are talking,” he said.
“You must bear in mind that not just bikies but it’s any group that the Attorney-General and the Commissioner of Police target.
“Probably (Premier) Mr Rann and (Attorney-General) Mr Atkinson have done better to unite the groups than any other force in the state.”
