Jailed bikies may be dressed in fluoro pink jumpsuits

CONVICTED outlaw motorcycle gang members may be forced to wear fluoro pink jumpsuits in prison as the Queensland Government ramps up its fight to rid the state of bikies.

Premier Campbell Newman confirmed on Monday the State Government was looking at making the changes, but no final decision had been made.

The possible change to the prison uniform follows the passing of controversial state laws targeting bikie gangs.
Under the tough new laws, 26 bikie gangs have been named as criminal organisations.

Members are barred from their clubhouses or gathering in groups of three or more, and those convicted of serious crimes face an extra 15-years jail time on top of their initial sentence.

Convicted criminal gang members who hold a position of office within a criminal organisation will be slapped with a further 10-year mandatory sentence on top of the 15-year sentence for being a 'vicious lawless associate.'

Last week, Mr Newman announced the government would use a maximum security facility at Woodford Correctional Centre to incarcerate outlaw motorcycle gang members.
