Tense exchanges in bikie murder trial

Former soldier Michael Fox didn’t care for the specifics. As long as it wasn’t about drugs, he was willing to help his friend get back what was owed to him.

That friend, the Supreme Court heard yesterday, was high-ranking Nomads bikie member Neil Green.

Mr Green hasn’t been seen since April 16, 2010 when he and Mr Fox went to a business in western Sydney to have a conversation with Kevin Green, and resolve their falling out with “peaceful means”.

But it wasn’t until the unarmed pair got there that Mr Fox said learnt what the debt was – $2.5 million, and two guns.

“Obviously at that point I realised it was a lot more serious than I thought it was,” Mr Fox told the jury yesterday.

“Neil left a lot of things out.”

The Crown alleges Neil Green was murdered in a hail of bullets by Kevin Gall, who ambushed the pair by shooting over a fence at his father’s business in at Girraween.

But as the trial began yesterday, it was also alleged that Mr Gall fired the weapon at Mr Green to protect his father.

Kevin Gall, 34, has pleaded not guilty to murdering Mr Green, while his 61-year-old father is accused of being an accessory after the fact.

Mr Fox, the court heard, is the key Crown witness.

Crown Prosecutor Margaret Cunneen, SC, said Mr Fox and Mr Green had waited with Bruce Gall for Kevin to arrive – but eventually shots were fired.

“[Kevin Gall] was firing the pistol from the there side of the fence,” Ms Cunneen told the jury.

Defence barrister Matthew Johnston told the court his client, Kevin Gall, did fire the bullets – but it was out of fear for his father’s safety.

“He could hear the fear in his father’s voice,” Mr Johnston said.

Giving evidence yesterday afternoon, a volatile Mr Fox said his friend could definitely get angry.

“He was a violent man – well, he could be if you were doing the wrong thing by him,” he said.

Later, under cross-examination, he was asked to explain what that meant.

“He’s a one percenter … one per cent of the community. One per cent of the population. That’s what that means,” he said, referring to the bikie gang motto.

Repeatedly swearing and accusing Mr Johnston of questioning his integrity, Mr Fox had to be warned by Justice Christine Adamson to simply answer the questions on numerous questions.

The trial continues.
