Comancheros boss Pasilika Naufahu has been jailed for 10 years.
Justice Graham Lang sentenced him today in the High Court at Auckland.
“You were the president of the Comancheros” and as such were in a position of influence, Justice Lang said to Naufahu.
The High Court judge detailed how Naufahu’s family had moved to Australia when he was only one, and they struggled under financial hardship.
Bullied at school, Naufahu found the way to deal with this was violence, which won the approval of his father, he said.
It had been a previously been a strained relationship, the court heard.
Naufahu had found the “brotherhood” missing in his life in the form of the Comancheros.
He was “surprised” to be deported given his imprisonment in Australia had been in short stints.
Not surprisingly he had sought out the company of others in the same situation, he said.
There were “hints” in some of the reports that he was considering a change in lifestyle but the judge viewed the likelihood of that as remote.
“It would take considerable willpower on your part to break away from those contacts.”
