– Police are investigating a chilling standover in which a leading real estate agent enlisted feared bikie enforcer Toby Mitchell to help him recoup a $130,000 debt.
Bandido bikie Mitchell and another burly man identified as “Slim” Walker attended a formal meeting of those owed money after the collapse of property development firm Rivacourt Pty Ltd.
Mitchell and Walker were seen wearing Bandidos colours.
Police have been told that during the creditors’ meeting, Mitchell allegedly produced a dossier containing what appeared to be photographs of the home of Rivacourt’s director, a millionaire fund manager from Brighton.
Corporate documents show the director was at the meeting, held as part of the company’s formal voluntary administration process.
The muscular and heavily tattooed Mitchell, a feared underworld figure and Bandido sergeant-at-arms who has survived two attempts on his life, was allegedly seen flicking through photographs of the director’s home as the meeting unfolded.
A third, unidentified man was seen in the building’s foyer.
Mitchell and Walker formally acknowledged their attendance at the meeting, signing the official register in their own names and describing themselves as “observers”.
The register has been lodged with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission.
Police have been told the bikie arrived at the meeting with a real estate agent from a successful suburban real estate franchise.
A tribunal had previously ruled that Rivacourt owed that agent $130,000 in commissions, according to ASIC records.
Records of the meeting,which took place on March 19th at the St Kilda a Road offices of administrators Bent & Cougle, reveal the agent demanded that money back.
“(The agent) asked the director when he was going to pay the money he was owed,” the ASIC files reveal.
Administrators found Rivacourt to be $1.9 million in debt, according to ASIC.
Police received a complaint after the meeting and the anti-bikie Taskforce Echo opened an investigation.
Victoria Police said in a statement: “Police are aware of the matter and are conducting inquiries.”
Administrator Hamish Mackinnon, of Bent & Cougle, declined to comment. The company director did not return calls.
The agent would not say why he has brought Mitchell to the creditors’ meeting.
He said: “I’d be very careful what I’d write if I were you.”
He would not say how he had come to have contact with Mitchell and said the dispute with the company director has been resolved.
“There is no criminal act and there was no standover at all,” he said.
Bikies are increasingly becoming involved in standover bids, expanding their debt-collecting activities in the property and construction industries – Carly Crawford

About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
