NZ Comanchero MC secretary jailed for part in money laundering, drug operation

The secretary of the Comanchero MC has been jailed for his part in a large-scale money laundering and drug operation.

Jarome Raymond Fonua previously admitted participating in an organised criminal group for the purpose of drug dealing, money laundering, and possession of 5.9 grams of methamphetamine.

On Tuesday, at the High Court in Auckland, Justice Graham Lang said Fonua was an “important player in the group” and sentenced him to four years and six months in prison.

Fonua was arrested, along with 18 others, following a series of raids across Auckland in April 2019, which saw more than $3.7 million in assets seized along with luxury cars, motorcycles, luxury luggage and jewellery.
