Accused Yandina bikies have bail conditions wiped

TWO men allegedly part of the Yandina Seven have had their bail conditions relaxed.

A Supreme Court Justice yesterday ordered the bail conditions for Steven Michael Smith and Joshua Shane Carew be changed, which police did not oppose.

Mr Smith, 29, and Mr Carew, 32, no longer have to report to police.

Mr Smith is also able to contact people he could not previously associate with under his bail conditions.

The men are alleged to have links to the Rebels.

They were charged with five other people under the Newman government's Vicious Lawless Association Disestablishment Act (VLAD) after allegedly meeting together at the Yandina Hotel in November 2013.

Last month lawyers were able to de-list a hearing at Maroochydore Magistrates Court for the seven men after the State Government announced it intended to review the legislation.

On Tuesday Mr Smith and Mr Carew's lawyer Robert Butler confirmed the case had been adjourned until January 2016 while the legislation was being reviewed.
