In November 2013, Queer Radio was chosen by an independent panel of judges to win the CAN Awards 2013 Media Award. The Community Action Network Awards were first introduced in 1997 to recognize achievement that is positive and makes a difference in the inner city areas of Brisbane. Coordinated by the New Farm Neighbourhood Centre, the award citation reads "For excellence in journalism/social media which promotes the social inclusion and equality for all".
Ex-Bandidos President Brett Pechey Arrested at Brisbane Airport
The Taskforce Maxima Detective Inspector said, "We have had a warrant out for his arrest since March last year and have been going through the process of applying for extradition,"
It was that Broadbeach brawl which prompted Queensland's controversial Vicious Lawless Association Disestablishment laws in the hope of curtailing bikie-related crime.
"We're very pleased we have been able to bring the matter to a resolution," the Inspector said.
The bikie was also wanted over an array of other charges. Mr Pechey is scheduled to appear in Brisbane Magistrate Court on today.
