Former gang member arrested
SYDNEY: The arrest of a former Japanese criminal-society member on Queensland’s Gold Coast has focused attention on the movement of Asian Mafia-style gangs into Australia, particularly NSW.
Australian Federal Police and Immigration Department officers arrested 47 year-old Suzuki Sueharu in a raid on a Currumbin Waters flat yesterday. He had failed to reveal his criminal history when applying for a visa.
An AFP spokesman said yesterday that Sueharu had entered Australia from Fiji in February on a visitor’s visa and then begun business activities, including buying land and promoting a planned tourist resort.
Sueharu revealed his former Yakuza ties when arrested and admitted he had hidden his criminal record.
The AFP spokesman would not detail the man’s criminal history but said it was “extensive”.
Being a Yakuza member was not itself a criminal offence, but failing to declare previous criminal convictions was illegal under the Migration Act and made a person an illegal entrant automatically, he said.
Sydney police said more Yakuza members might be operating in Australia, particularly in states with casinos where money-laundering was suspected.
Japanese men were dealing with large amounts of money, particularly in Western Australia, Darwin and on the Gold Coast Yakuza members were easily identified by full-body tattoos, black suits and often had a little finger chopped off.
The society was linked with prostitution, contract murders and drug running.
A spokesman from the organised crime branch ( state intelligence ), Detective Chief Inspector Alan Rudd, said it was “highly likely” that the society was operating in Australia, especially in NSW. He said little was known about the group because its activities had been well hidden so far.
“We haven’t really got much on the Yakuza, but only because we haven’t been exploring in that direction … We tend to have concentrated on the Chinese and Vietnamese groups because we know what they’re up to,” he said.
Inspector Rudd said NSW in some ways provided ideal conditions for the Japanese society to flourish, “because it’s a business centre and there is a lot of real-estate activity”.
A Queensland police report has alleged that the Yakuza, with a $10 billion turn over, launders “black” money through property development.
The report says society members have intimidated legitimate tourist businesses into paying commissions for tour groups to be brought to their businesses.
Nothing further, than what is recorded above, is known about this person at the time of publication and further information and photos would be appreciated.
