Likely successor to slain Comanchero commander Pitasoni Ulavalu refused bail after reprisal fears raised

Comanchero MC

The likely successor to slain Canberra Comanchero commander Pitasoni Ulavalu has failed in a bid to secure bail after police and prosecutors expressed fears he would orchestrate reprisal attacks if released.

Aofangatuku Fatafehi Finau Langi, currently the bikie gang’s local sergeant-at-arms, is awaiting trial after pleading not guilty to nine charges laid over an alleged attack on a rival in November last year.

Police allege that Mr Langi, 31, and Christopher Millington shot at then-Nomads member Alexander Victor Miller and set fire to the Kambah house Mr Miller was living in during a home invasion.

Mr Langi appeared in the ACT Supreme Court on Thursday, after five months in custody on remand, and applied for bail in order to live and work in Sydney. Crown prosecutor Anthony Williamson opposed the application, saying that as the sergeant-at-arms, Mr Langi was the Canberra Comancheros’ chief enforcer.

Mr Williamson said Mr Langi’s role as second-in-charge of the local chapter included coordinating violence and retribution against people who threatened the gang. There was a real risk, Mr Williamson said, that Mr Langi would order “lethal violence” against whoever the Canberra Comancheros believed to be responsible for the death of Mr Ulavalu, who was fatally stabbed in a fight at Kokomo’s in Civic on the weekend.
