Olivia killer Thomas Cashman's intended target Joseph Nee slapped with a gang injunction

Joseph Nee and his brother have been handed a gang injuction.

Nee, was released from prison after he was chased into Olivia Pratt-Korbel's home on Kingsheath Avenue, Dovecot. He was also shot at by Thomas Cashman on August 22 last year.

The 36-year-old was recalled to prison for breaching the conditions of his licence in relation to a 45-month sentence for burglary and dangerous driving. The injunction was put in place at Liverpool County Court on Wednesday, May 17 and will be enforced until 2025, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Due to the conditions of the order, Joseph and Jason Nee can't communicate with people who have been named to them by Merseyside Police, with the exception being a private residence - such names will not be publicly released by police. The Nee's are also disallowed from having more than one phone or sim card which must be registered.

Any breaches of the order will result in either of the men being arrested and taken to court. Merseyside Police clarified that they're actively 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 crack down 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."
