Police go back over Finks feud for clues to why an associate was tossed off a cliff at Marino
October 29, 2012
POLICE are examining recent incidents linked to an internal feud in the Finks bikie gang as they try to identify who threw Homan Nasseri off a cliff.
Nasseri, an associate member of the outlaw motorcycle gang and who is well-known to police, was bashed before being thrown off a cliff at Marino on Friday night in an internal dispute between gang members.
It is understood one incident police are looking at involves a well-known Finks member who was allegedly involved in a violent altercation with Nasseri, 26, several weeks ago.
Nasseri remains in Flinders Medical Centre with facial injuries and fractures.
Crime Gangs Task Force officer-in-charge Detective Superintendent John De Candia yesterday revealed detectives had already searched the Finks southside clubrooms at Brighton as part of the investigation.
"We believe what has happened is an internal club matter," he said.
"We do know they resolve their internal conflicts with violence. In this case it has been done out of the public eye.
"Whatever resulted in this incident also occurred out of the public eye."
Nasseri, who runs a southern suburbs fast food outlet, was in July 2007 charged jointly with his younger brother Bahman with drug offences after a police raid on their home uncovered 1700 ecstasy tablets, $9000 cash and a replica pistol.
In September 2007 all charges against them were dismissed due to lack of evidence.
Detectives believe Nasseri was subjected to a severe bashing sometime after 9pm Friday - when he was last seen by his girlfriend - at an unknown location before being taken to the Marino cliff next to The Cove Rd.
He was thrown down the cliff and came to rest on rocks around 10m below.
He was found by people walking along the beach early on Saturday and taken to Flinders Medical Centre where he remains in a satisfactory condition.
He told police he had fallen from the cliff, but suspicions were aroused when blood was found at the top of the cliff.
A short time later, a silver Peugeot hatchback was found burnt out at Brooks Rd at Clarendon that police believe was used to transport the bashed man to Marino.
