Two gang members guilty of Sydney murder 'Don't die on me,' screamed the wife of a debt collector as he lay in a pool of blood after being gunned down when he answered the doorbell at their Sydney home.
Joseph Antoun had many enemies, but on Tuesday a judge found two senior gang members of the Blacktown chapter of Brothers 4 Life guilty of the 50 year old's contract murder. Gang leader Farhad Qaumi, 34, louis vuitton neverfull mm or speedy 35 and his second louis vuitton agenda australia in command Mumtaz Qaumi, 32, refused to be brought up from the cells to hear Justice Peter Hamill's verdicts following the judge alone trial. The brothers threatened to physically resist any attempt to force them into the dock, leading the judge to read his lengthy decision in their absence because of safety concerns. The brothers were found to have recruited Witness L to murder Mr Antoun, who was shot louis vuitton artsy gm cost four times in front of his wife when he opened the door of their Strathfield home on December 16, 2013. Last November, a jury found the brothers guilty of gangland related shootings including one carried out by Witness L earlier in 2013. In delivering his verdicts, Justice Hamill said he suspected Pasquale Barbaro, who was shot dead in Sydney last November during the latest Qaumi trial, was behind Mr Antoun's murder. He noted 'graphic evidence of Barbaro's jealousy and hatred of Antoun' was revealed in an intercepted phone call in June 2013. The Crown contended the brothers had accepted a contract to kill Mr Antoun from his former business partner Elias 'Les' Elias, now in the Philippines. 'The evidence does not allow a clear finding as to whether Pasquale Barbaro, or others, may have stood behind Elias in this enterprise but I suspect that he did,' the judge said. The judge concluded that a transaction, said to have involved a kebab shop, was a cover for the true purpose of Elias paying at least $80,000 to Mumtaz Qaumi, and more probably $100,000, before and after the murder. Witnesses L and C were but two of a number of gang related witnesses whose names were suppressed and who received discounted sentences and gave evidence against the brothers. The defence referred to their 'patent unreliability' and put forward alternative, innocent explanations for significant parts of the Crown's circumstantial case and suggested other suspects.
'Whatever the precise nature of (Mr Antoun's) business, it emerged clearly that he had a number of enemies and people with a motive to do him harm,' the judge louis vuitton shoes wedding said. 'These included people with reputations that suggested that they may be dangerous or may have contacts capable of organising or carrying out an assassination.' But after carefully analysing all the evidence, the judge concluded the brothers were guilty of the murder and adjourned the matter for a sentence hearing in April.
