• President of Aussie biker gang, Finks denied entry into Bali for family vacation

    Kosh Radford turns back around in the immigration hall at Ngurah Rai International Airport.

    The president of Australia’s notorious Finks biker gang was turned back to Sydney upon landing in Bali for a family vacation.

    Kosh Radford, aka Koshan Rashidi, who had been traveling with his child, wife, and mother-in-law, were blocked from entering Indonesia on the evening of Nov. 8 when they landed at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport.

    “At the immigration counter for passport checking and stamp, that’s where he was denied entry because we already knew him as the head of a dangerous motorcycle gang in Australia,” Ngurah Rai Immigration Class I chief, Ari Budjianto said, as quoted by Liputan6.

    “He was deported that same night,” Budjianto said.

    “Foreigners who are rejected from entering Indonesia are foreigners that allegedly could causes[sic] restlessness and disturb national security.”

    Finks is an outlaw motorcycle club formed in Sydney in 1969 with an estimated membership of 2,000 bikers. 

    Radford and family did not resist and were cooperative when denied entry into Bali according to the immigration chief.

    “It went smoothly,” Budjianto said.

    The Daily Telegraph had reported that immigration flagged Radford thanks to a tip-off from Australian intelligence soruces, but Budjianto reportedly denied that immigration acted on intel from Aussie sources.
