Federal authorities are moving on a mystery Russian woman whose family, police believe, is connected to Malkoun.
The woman, who bought the properties over a 12-month period, has been hit with an income tax assessment notice ordering her to pay $34 million.
Malkoun, the former president of the Comancheros bikie gang, left Melbourne in 2013 to settle in Dubai.
Head detective of Victoria Police’s anti-gangs division, Supt Peter De Santo, described him as “living in exile”.
Details of Malkoun’s suspected international reach surfaced at a major outlaw motorcycle gang conference in Melbourne last week.
The conference, between Victorian, Federal and overseas OMCG experts, also heard:
POLICE say bikies are moving to Victoria due to tougher anti-gang laws in other states.
FIFTY Mongols have been recruited in Victorian prisons.
REBELS bikies have threatened to kill Aussie Hells Angels if their clubmates in new Canadian chapters are attacked.
COMANCHERO boss Mick Murray is now facing a $12.9 million tax bill.
THE feared Nomads gang, which is linked to years of violent conflict in Sydney, has set up a chapter in Melbourne.
BIKIES are over-represented in domestic violence cases.
Investigators believe Malkoun has established strong connections into Russia during his time in Dubai.
Police have also flagged as being “of note”, the fact that Malkoun, a convicted large-scale heroin trafficker, is living in the same city as two other Comanchero expatriates.
Police believe one of the bikies is still using the existing bikie drug distribution networks that made him one of Australia’s most wanted men.
It also emerged Victoria Police has intelligence holdings indicating former Bandido strongman Toby Mitchell quit the club after becoming disenchanting at what he saw as a lack of response to two shooting attacks on him.
Mitchell was wounded, but survived gun ambushes at Brunswick in 2011 and Melton in 2013.
No charges have been laid over either incident, but it is believed it is well-known who is responsible within Melbourne’s underworld.
Supt De Santo said legislative changes such as anti-association laws in other states had led to bikies moving into Victoria.
“It has caused displacement down into our state,” he said.
Supt De Santo also told the conference he had just been made aware of figures showing that an OMCG member was involved in an incident of domestic family violence every three to five days.
Super-secure BlackBerry Phantoms have emerged as a new obstacle for police trying to run surveillance on bikies.
