Meet the heavily tattooed underworld boss who has taken over the helm of Australia’s most powerful biker gang, the Comancheros

  • Allan Meehan, 35, is the new leader of Australia’s most powerful biker gang
  • Former Rebel Turned Comanchero Boss Spent His Entire Adult Life As A Biker
  • Takes over from Mick Murray, who was recently charged with a murder in 2019

A man who grew up in social housing and regularly attends Catholic Mass at church has become Australia’s most powerful outlaw bikie boss.

The infamous Comancheros Sydney and Canberra Chapter commander Allan Meehan was appointed as the new national president in Melbourne this week after months of unrest.

He is taking over from former Melbourne boss Mick Murray, who recently stepped aside on a murder charge.

Meehan, 35, grew up in a social housing development in southwestern Sydney and has spent half his life in the ranks of biker gangs.

He joined the rebels when he turned 18 and later became chairman of the Cronulla chapter before defecting to the Comancheros.

Sources claim he was lured into switching allegiances by a mentor, Comanchero “Commander of the World” Mark Buddle, who is one of Australia’s most wanted men after the 2010 shooting of Armaguard guard Gary Allibon in Sydney.

Buddle is still on the run from authorities abroad and was last known in Cyprus.

Meehan is well “respected” by both the gang’s old guard and new recruits, the Herald Sun reported.

“He has spent his entire adult life in motorcycle gangs,” a source told the publication.

“He knows no other life.”

He was promoted to commander of the Canberra branch early last year after the assassination of former president Pitasoni Ulavalu and became commander of Sydney six months later.

It is understood that Meehan has told members that he will be overseeing the Comancheros from Sydney, but is expected to travel to Melbourne on a regular basis.

He was considered next in line to take over from Murray, 44, who was arrested in April for the 2019 murder of Mitat Rasimi, an associate of noted drug lord Tony Mokbel

He was charged with one count of murder and remains behind bars.

It’s been a chaotic few months for Australia’s most powerful motorcycle club, still reeling from the recent underworld shooting that left National Sergeant-at-arm Tarek Zahed seriously injured and claiming the life of his brother Omar.

Dozens of other members have also been arrested in AFP raids as part of Operation Ironside, one of the largest and most significant crackdowns on organized crime in Australia’s history.

A source recently said Meehan was considered “pretty full” but has a sober head to control some of the gang’s more volatile elements.
