NSW bikie who assisted murder walks free

The Rebels MC

A senior Rebels bikie member whose planned act of intimidation turned into the murder of another club member has walked out of court a free man.

Sami Esko Hamalainen had pleaded guilty to recruiting an associate to intimidate former Rebels bikie John Salafia, and to assisting an unknown person knowing they had committed murder.

The 45-year-old was already found guilty of being an accessory after the fact of Mr Salafia’s murder on the NSW south coast in June, 2013.

Justice David Davies on Wednesday in the Supreme Court sentenced Hamalainen to a maximum of two years and eight months for the crimes, but having already served his time in custody was declared “free to go”.
