Former Rebels bikie accused of torture, rape of women

A FORMER Rebels Motorcycle Club is facing allegations of shocking domestic violence offences including torture and rape.

The Townsville Bulletin reported the Rebels Motorcycle Club has provided provided a statement to police about the ex-member.

The man is charged with 23 crimes, including torture and rape, against his ex-wife, and 44 against a more recent partner. The 33-year-old father of four, who cannot be named to protect the alleged victims, unsuccessfully applied for bail in Townsville Magistrates Court on Friday.

The ex-wife made complaints of historic abuse allegedly committed between 2006 and 2012.

Senior prosecutor Mark Fenlon told the court that many of the 44 fresh charges, allegedly committed since October, breached a Western Australian restraining order and a Queensland domestic violence order (DVO).
