One member of a African street gang in Victoria has been deported to New Zealand, while six others with links to the gangs are awaiting deportation. All seven have had their visas cancelled, with six of the seven appealing the cancellations. Meanwhile, comments by both Victorian Police Minister Lisa Neville and acting Acting Victorian Police Chief Commissioner Shane Patton on 2 January appear to be an admission that the state does have a problem with violent African street gangs, despite both the police and the Andrews government having previously denied such a problem existed.
