Two men from Dovecot served with Gang Injunctions

Two men involved in gang-related activity in Liverpool have been issued with two-year Gang Injunctions at Liverpool County Court.

Joseph Nee, 36, and Jason Nee, 33, who are brothers from Dovecot, were made subject to Gang Injunctions on Wednesday 17 May, which have since been served and will now remain in place until 2025.

The conditions of the order means that Joseph and Jason Nee are prohibited from:

• Associating and communicating with named persons by any means
• Being with, associating with, communicating with or approaching named persons except in a private residence.
• Possessing more than one phone and sim card, which must be registered
• Either directly/indirectly use or threaten to use violence against any person/property including via phone or internet
• Riding or being a passenger on any electrically powered bike or scooter, any quad bike, motorbike, scrambler bike, trial bike, or any other type of two wheeled motorised bike within the county of Merseyside.

Any breaches of the prohibitions can result in either of the men being arrested and taken to court.

Merseyside Police is proactively targeting gang-related activity in the Dovecot area and recently launched EVOLVE Liverpool-Knowsley.

Chief Inspector Tony Fairhurst, one of the senior officers involved in EVOLVE Liverpool-Knowsley, said, “The Gang Injunctions demonstrates how Merseyside Police is taking a proactive approach to tackling serious organised crime in our communities. 

“Gang Injunctions are powerful and effective tools to assist in the crackdown on gang-related activity and we hope that this action helps to reassure the law-abiding residents living in Dovecot and Yewtree that we are determined to use all the powers and legislation available to us.

“The prohibitions detailed in these specific Injunctions are widely known by our local officers and will be policed rigorously. This means that should either men breach their prohibitions, we can act quickly to arrest them and put them back before the courts. Breaches can result in prison sentences, making them a really strong deterrent.

“I would encourage members of the public to come forward with information on those involved in organised crime and criminal activity so that we can continue to take action. Information from the public is vital if we are to breakdown the organised crime groups who bring misery to our streets.”

“Anyone with information can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
