Man Escapes Jail Sentence over Deadly Bikie Scuffle at Sydney Airport
A man who confessed to being engaged in a deadly clash between bikie gangs at Sydney Airport last year has evaded a jail punishment.
Fourteen men, 11 Comancheros and three Hells Angels, have been accused over the March 2009 brawl, which resulted in the death of Hells Angels associate, Anthony Zervas in front of large number of petrified travelers on a Sunday afternoon.
A murder accusation has been withdrawn against a man connected with the Comancheros, after he beseeched guilty to disturbance and brawl and settled to give proof.
The man told the police that he was a candidate to become a Comanchero member at the time of the scuffle and stopped his connection with the club some days after it.
He is the first person punished over the episode and is kept anonymous for official reasons.
New South Wales District Court Judge, Colin Charteris acclaimed the man's guts for helping out police but said that he has a good enough reason to be worried regarding his own security and that of his family members.
He remembered that the man had told officials that "bikie rules are that you can't talk to police or you get killed".
The Judge gave him a 55% reduction for his early guilty petition and his past and future aid to examiners.
