The alleged secret effect of underground wannabe-biki's has been revealed, while former members speak out about the alleged & brutal dictatorship & # 39 ;.
Faithful to the gang who reportedly tried to earn a rebel patch from the capital of Queensland, obedience to a strict code of conduct required a court hearing.
The list of requirements included the sale of 100 MDMA pills per week, a requirement to answer the phone when another gang member calls at any time and pays a fee of $ 200,000 for those wishing to leave.
The gang is run by Ian Robert Crowden who reportedly issued public bashing for members who do not follow the rules, heard the court of Brisbane.
Crowden is accused of extortion, serious bodily harm, sexual assault, torture, arson, intimidation, participation in a criminal organization, threat of violence and drug trafficking.

The court heard that Crowden reportedly told a man: "I know 1000 ways to kill someone & # 39; before he hit him until he & # 39; unrecognizable & # 39; was, the courier mail reported.
Matthew Grant Lambert and Robert Jamie Sorbello were also committed to stand trial this week in the Supreme Court of Brisbane for crimes including alleged drug trafficking and assault.

Arnold, a bouncer in a nightclub in the Gold Coast, had made a statement to the police about an attack on which he worked.
The gang would have traded the MDMA drug on the Glitter Strip in Surfer's Paradise.
Sorbello was charged with serious physical injuries, intimidation and extortion while Lambert was confronted with charges, including the trafficking of dangerous drugs and the receipt of property.

According to evidence heard in the Magistrates Court in Brisbane
The witness Jordan Brandy told the court that he had fled the group and told an alleged speech by Crowden.
& # 39; These are the rules: you have to pay $ 100 a week to the club while eating, you have to go out and earn the club, & # 39; said the alleged gang boss.
& # 39; It (the club) is a dictatorship, you have to answer your phone. If you do not call back after five minutes, you will get a beating. & # 39;
Crowden was reportedly backed by former national rebel bikie boss Alex Vella and would get a chapter if he brought 15 members together.
The group's alleged boss, along with the other men, is also accused of offering someone to shake a man's hand before striking him and beating him with a piece of wood in a wood factory on the Sunshine Coast in December 2014.
Brandy told the court that Crowden would have continued the attack by using wood to hit his victim.
Magistrates were also told that Arnold and other members were allegedly beaten after going to the authorities about a nightclub incident.
Counsel for Lambert and Sorbello said in an earlier promise that the two men were initially told that the club was just a group for those who were motorcycle fans.
The case has now been committed to a trial that was included for a later date.
