Police admit Melbourne has an African crime problem

Sudanese immigrants “refugees”are increasingly having their visas revoked on character grounds and are now among the top five nationalities for cancellations
  • More Sudanese people are having visas cancelled through ministerial discretion
  • In the last financial year they were in the top five but did not feature previously 
  • MP David Coleman says no tolerance for those who put Australians in danger

However, no Sudanese citizens had visa cancellations via ministerial discretion for the two previous financial years, 2015-16 and 2016-17.

Which means this Daily Mail article is a canard.

African gangs in Melbourne are a problem, police admit, as Victorian Government defends strategy

The denials and the cover ups are all fading away as the Truth comes to the surface. Will the press, the Federal government, the Labor party, the Greens and Antifa apologise for their misrepresentation of the peaceful gathering at St Kilda last Saturday? You know the one to protest about the rising gang violence in Melbourne.

How embarrassing for our detractors to read that the Victorian Police have vindicated the gathering by admitting that there is a Gang Violence problem in Melbourne.

Cheers Australians, Keep up the pressure.

Victorian police have conceded Melbourne has a problem with African street gangs, after earlier insisting there were no gangs in the city, as the State Government rejects criticism it has dropped the ball on the problem.

Police Minister Lisa Neville on Tuesday defended the Government’s handling of youth crime after the Federal Government on Monday said “African gang crime” was out of control in Melbourne because of lenient state policies.

The issue has become a priority for both major parties after a series of recent headline-grabbing crimes blamed on groups of young African men, including the trashing of an Airbnb property in Werribee, vandalism in Tarneit and a night of violence at St Kilda Beach involving dozens of youths.


Just days after Victoria Police Deputy Commissioner Andrew Crisp said he did “not accept for a minute that we do have gangs”, Acting Chief Commissioner Shane Patton said there were African street gangs in Melbourne.

“We have for a significant period of time said that there is an issue with overrepresentation by African youth in serious and violent offending as well as public disorder issues,” Acting Commissioner Patton said.

More frontline police

Ms Neville said most African migrants were law-abiding citizens, but “this core group of African youths are causing huge fear”.

She said Victoria Police noticed youth offending “go to a new level” in 2016, and the State Government responded by:

  • adding resources to the gangs squad and special operations group
  • recruiting 3,135 additional frontline police
  • funding an intelligence system, bulletproof vehicles and other technology and resources.

“These resource are having an impact,” Ms Neville said.

“We’ve seen the biggest decrease in the crime rate in over a decade.”

Ms Neville said upcoming changes to the Youth Parole Board meant police would be informed when young people were paroled, and conditions would be placed on parolees to prevent reoffending.

A program that started in November was also targeting repeat offenders with intensive, individual case management, she said.

‘Out of control’

On Monday, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said the Government was concerned about “growing gang violence and lawlessness” in Melbourne, and frontbencher Greg Hunt said “African gang crime in some areas in particular is clearly out of control”.


With a state election less than a year away, the federal Coalition is pushing the merits of its Victorian counterparts’ law-and-order policy, including a pledge to introduce mandatory sentencing for repeat offenders behind crimes such as home invasions, armed robberies and aggravated car-jackings.

South Sudanese Australian Nelly Yoa, who said he mentored troubled young people in the community, is also critical of the State Government.

“The punishments are not harsh enough. The Victorian Government has been so lenient on youth offending,” he told ABC News.

Sudanese community leader Richard Deng said the Prime Minister should be more supportive of the State Government’s efforts.

Ahmed Hassan, the director of an organisation that helps marginalised young people, said the proportion of African youths involved in crime was a small minority.

“We seemingly don’t have an African gang problem — what we do have is young people who are disadvantaged, who are disengaged, a young cohort who are coming together that are causing this mischievous activity,” said Mr Hassan, who runs the Youth Activating Youth program.

Shadow attorney-general John Pesutto said the Government should drop Youth Control Orders — a sentencing option requiring young offenders to take part in education or work and comply with conditions such as curfews.

Stats shed light on problem

Data from Victoria’s Crime Statistics Agency, below, shows an overrepresentation of Sudanese-born and Kenyan-born offenders in some crime categories, proportional to their Victorian populations.

They also show a sharp rise in Sudanese-born offenders involved in armed robberies, from 20 in the 2014-15 financial year to 98 two years later.

However, the statistics also show that a Victorian is more than 25 times more likely to be seriously assaulted by someone born in Australia or New Zealand than someone born in Sudan or Kenya.

They are almost five times more likely to be the victim of an aggravated burglary committed by an Australian or New Zealand-born offender, than one born in Sudan or Kenya.

According to Census figures, people born in Sudan make up about 0.1 per cent of Victoria’s population. The Kenyan-born population in Victoria is about the half the size of the Sudanese-born population.
