Alleged Apex Gang Member Has Bail Terms Relaxed For Cricket
The Herald Sun, a teenager, linked to an Apex jewellery store robbery has had his bail conditions relaxed so he can play cricket.
Sportsman Akon Mawien, 19, and two others allegedly used weapons as they raided shops in the CBD and Coburg during a 90-minute crime spree on July 7.
Melbourne magistrate Peter Reardon yesterday stripped three hours from Mawien’s curfew so he could attend training with his teammates at Sunshine Heights Cricket Club.
It comes just days after the newspaper revealed that the teenagers charged of the Moomba riots, including the Apex members, had been accused of more crimes.
As well as being a cricket player, Mawien was also employed as a language assistant at Mother of God school in Ardeer and deputy principal Matthew Shawcross said “Akon was a terrific staff member much-loved by all the children.’’
Mawien is set to front the magistrates again on November 16 for a committal mention.
