Christmas dinner in Australian prisons: What it looks like for Bilal Skaf, Cleo’s accused kidnapper

Glamorous Bondi ‘drugs pin-up girl’ Danielle Tara Hogan will be having her first Christmas dinner in prison eating a lonely meal in her cell of crumbed fish and pumpkin in a foil tray.

The 26-year-old, who pleaded guilty to making 370 deliveries of 580 bags of cocaine, is spending the first of at least two festive seasons in a NSW women’s prison.

The North Bondi former event planner, who flaunted on Instagram her lavish holidays and dinners at waterfront bars while peddling cocaine across Sydney, will serve at least 17 months behind bars.

She is among roughly 40,000 inmates in 92 adult correctional centres around the country who will be behind bars while non-incarcerated Australians enjoy festivities with family.

Up to 30,000 Christmas lunches and dinners have been prepared by inmates under the NSW prison system's 'cook chill' method and distributed to the state's 35 prison facilities.

Up to 30,000 Christmas lunches and dinners have been prepared by inmates under the NSW prison system’s ‘cook chill’ method and distributed to the state’s 35 prison facilities. 

Now dressing in prison green shorts and T-shirt, Hogan is believed to be spending the festive season in a minimum security women’s prison. 

Like all just over 12,000 inmates housed in NSW’s 35 correctional centres, Hogan will get no chance to see loved ones on December 25.

But even when visits resume, family and friends of prisoners must be double vaccinated and participate in screening and hygiene practices entering any jail.

The hundreds of female inmates dining in women’s prisons this Christmas include cannibal killer, Katherine Knight, who is in for life, and baby killer Keli Lane, counting down to her third last Yuletide locked up before release in 2024.

It will be many more for another child killer SW, whose earliest possible release date is November 2037. 

SW starved her seven-year-old daughter ‘Ebony’ down to a 9kg mummified corpse, with her co-offender husband claiming the child was killed by the ‘bull ants’ crawling from her mouth inside a putrid ‘bedroom jail’.

At the tough Silverwater women’s prison, Jessica Camilleri, who plans to appeal the 21 year sentence she received for decapitating her own mother, is currently locked up in the jail’s segregation wing.

Camilleri, whose notorious crime included removing her mother’s tongue and placing her head on a footpath outside the family home, was placed in ‘segro’ for allegedly tearing out hair from a women prison officer’s scalp.

Also in a women’s prison is Evie Amati, half way through her minimum eight years for attempting to murder overnight customers in a suburban 7-Eleven with a 3kg axe over anger after undergoing surgery in Thailand in 2014 and transitioning to womanhood.

Incarcerated in a series of women’s prisons, Amati was last reported to be de-transitioning back to male causing fights with female prisoners who wanted her moved to a male jail. 

Inmates, such as pack rapist Bilal Skaf, who is spending his first Christmas in 20 years without his little brother in the prison system, will be served a set menu.

Skaf’s brother Mohammed walked from prison in October to live with his family in western Sydney while serving out his parole, leaving the rape gang ringleader with at least 12 more years behind bars.

From killer ex-cop Roger Rogerson, who will spend every Christmas behind bars until he dies, to former Hey Dad! star and sex predator Robert Hughes, who’s desperate to get out next year, the day starts with cereal, bread, jam and a carton of milk.

Lunch will be roast turkey with cranberry sauce, potatoes, pumpkin and seasonal vegetables, plus a fruit mince pie.

Up to 30,000 lunches and dinners have been prepared under the NSW prison system’s ‘cook chill’ method and distributed to the 35 correctional facilities throughout the state.

 The meals are nutritionally balanced and everyday menus can range from Thai curries to Middle eastern fare, although inmates often complain the food is tasteless and they long for McDonalds or KFC.

Dinner on Saturday afternoon be crumbed fish salad with pumpkin, tomato, cucumber, carrots and lettuce, plus a Christmas slice. 

Disgraced TV actor Hughes – whose prison time has included being pelted in the yard with inmates’ waste, forcing jail bosses to erect a protective wire screen dubbed the ‘Hey Dad wall’ – is expected to apply again for parole in January.

Imprisoned in 2014 for ten sexual and indecent assault charges against four girls after using his fame to silence his victims since the 1980s, Hughes is reportedly now financially destitute.

The  former sitcom star has twice been refused parole after he tried to trick authorities by renouncing his Australian citizenship so as to be deported on release to the UK where he would be unsupervised.

Down in Goulburn’s Supermax prison, where alleged drug kingpin Mostafa Baluch has been incarcerated while on remand, Muslim inmates will be offered a ‘religious friendly’ or vegetarian alternative to the standard meal.

He faces a potential life prison sentence if convicted for allegedly organising importation of 900kg of cocaine from Ecuador.

Other fellow inmates within the clinical confines of the  ultra-secure facility – which include mass killers and major organised crime figures – are Brothers 4 Life gangster Bassam Hamzy and killer and rapist Brendan Fernando.

All the Extreme High Risk Restricted (EHRR) inmates in Supermax, which houses Australia’s most violent criminals on terror charges and other extreme crimes, can choose between the crumbed fish and a falafel for Christmas dinner.

Multi-denominational religious services – which include Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist and Christian – will be held for inmates in the day before and after, but not on Dece4mber 25.  

Gangland serial killer and commerce degree graduate Abuzar Sultani, who just last week learned he will spend the rest of his life in jail, is spending his fourth Christmas in Supermax.

It was recently revealed that the man who murdered mafioso figure Pasquale Barbaro was an EHRR prisoner for three years in Supermax and ‘felt like I was in a coffin’ with no physical contact permitted with any outsider, including his recently widowed mother.

Sultani is now on the lower ‘classo’ of EHS (extreme high security) and has ‘opened up”, plays squash in prison and hopes to study for his doctorate. 

The vegetarian meal at dinner time – which will be served at 3.30pm on Christmas Day – is sweet potato falafel with pumpkin, tomato, cucumber, carrots and lettuce. 

For disgraced property developer Salim Mehajer, the festivities this season are a far cry from his lavish 2015 wedding which catapulted him into notoriety.

Mehajer, 35, has spent time in several different prisons this year, including daunting Silverwater remand prison, the MRRC, after being sent back inside for two years for lying to the court.

In March a court heard the former Auburn Council deputy mayor was confined to a Long Bay jail cell for 23 hours daily on protection from other prisoners because of his ‘public notoriety’.

But later this year, he was moved to more familiar digs at Cooma prison, where he previously served 11 months for electoral fraud, although prison seemed to improve him and sessions on the Cooma jail gym equipment served to buff up his physique.

Western  Australia

Over in Western Australia, Claremont serial killer Bradley Edwards is marking his fifth Christmas into a life sentence for the murders of Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon.

The seemingly mild mannered Telstra technicians is also convicted of the brutal rape of a 17-year-old girl in the 1990s when he was secretly stalking one of Perth’s favourite party suburbs.

 With no possibility of parole until 2056, Edward will be almost 90 if he survives in Casuarina maximum security prison where is a fellow inmate with Terry Kelly.

Accused of allegedly kidnapping four-year-old Cleo Smith, Mr Kelly was transferred to Casuarina south of Perth from his home town of Carnarvon last month.

Both Edwards and Mr Kelly will be served  traditional fare such as roast chicken and ham, along with vegetables and fruit sourced from WA’s three prison farms.

WA has 16 public prisons and one privately operated correctional facility holding  6,341 prisoners, including 5,737 males and 604 females.

It’s the 35th Christmas in prison for the state’s most notorious women inmate, Catherine Birnie.

The serial killer stalked Perth suburbs with her psychopath husband David a decade  before Bradley Edwards began to kill, although the younger serial killer had already begun breaking stealing female underwear and attacking women.

An outwardly harmless jail librarian dressed in prison greys at Bandyup maximum security women’s correctional facility, Birnie is waiting to again apply for parole possibly in 2022.

She is serving four terms of life imprisonment for the kidnap, rape and murder with her de facto David Birnie of four women in the notorious Moorhouse serial killings, but has a possibility of release.

It is not known if Birnie has any visits except from lawyers for decades, but like all WA inmates she can resume seeing visitors in the new year.

Also in Bandyup is the cruel killer Jemma Lilley whose ambition it was to be a serial killer, but she was arrested befiore she could achieve her goal.

 Lilley, then aged 26, and her bondage-loving housemate lover, Trudi Lenon, then 43, were found guilty in 2017 of murdering autistic teenager Aaron Pajich.

Lenon had lured Pajich, a friend of her teenage son, from a shopping centre to their house where Lilley fatally stabbed him and they buried him under tiles and concrete in the back yard.

 Both women were sentenced to life in jail with a 28-year minimum and were put into Bandyup in the same unit as Catehrine Birnie.

In 2018, a fellow inmate threw a two-litre container hot water over Trudi Lenon, after she saw the killer laughing with another inmate in the medication queue at Bandyup. 

Lenon was treated for burns and her attacker received  a maximum five years for the ‘vigilante’ assault.

During the Christmas period in Bandyup, Birnie, Lilley and Lenon can engage in a range of sporting and recreational activities, religious services and receive phone calls. 

Due to no community transmission of Covid-19 in WA, there are no current restrictions on  prisoner movements, and staff and visitors do not need to be double  vaccinated until December 31.

Victoria 

It’s likely the ‘culturally appropriate’ menu in Victorian corrections will be chosen by pocket-sized terrorist Momena Shoma who has just had her already massive prison sentence incresed by six years.

The fervent ISIS warrior, a 28-year-old Muslim from Bangladesh, may choose a vegetarian alternative to the non-Halal meat and gravy main course Christmas lunch being served in Victoria’s prisons.

Shoma is to a maximum 48 years after she tried to stab a woman inmate with garden shears in the neck.

Shoma, 28, had been in 24-hour lockdown last year inside the Dame Phyllis Frost maximum security women’s prison jail, which is part of the notorious Ravenhall correctional complex west of Melbourne.

While pretending to be de-radicalised, she was allowed to socialise with other inmates and, with ‘a strange smile on her face’ lunged at Canadian meth importer Kailee Mitz with the shears.

Shoma wanted international exposure as a ‘soldier of the Islamic State’.

This follows a 42 year sentence imposed in 2019 for stabbing her homestay host in the neck while he slept in an ISIS-motivated attack.

Two female inmates who held Shoma back after the attack said she was laughing and jubilant that she had made the attack, although Mitz sustained only a slashed thumb.

 Spending his first seasonal holiday period behind bars in Victoria is former Jetstar pilot Greg Lynn who has already experienced a ‘baptism of fire’ in the state’s high security Melbourne Assessment Prison.

The  55-year-old has been charged with allegedly murdering campers Russell Hill, 74, and Carol Clay, 73, in Victoria’s Wonnangatta Valley last year.

Mr Lynn is on remand at the facility which currently houses 176 maximum security inmates, and previously held Cardinal George Pell and Bourke Street killer James Gargasoulas. 

While quarantining in the prison’s protective custody unit, Lynn has had to endure loud screaming from other inmates in the cells who gave him a noisy welcome into the world inside.

Arthur Freeman, who threw his four-year-old daughter off the Westgate Bridge in 2009, is serving a minimum 32 years in the Victorian prison system

 Among the around 6500 inmates currently incarcerated in Victoria’s 15 correctional facilities are rapist and Jill Meagher murderer Adrian Bayley, and Mohinder Singh, the truckie who ploughed into four police officers who had pulled over Porsche driver, Richard Pusey.

The loathed inmate, Bayley, who is inside until at least 2055, has previously been stabbed by another inmate, while locked up in Barwon Prison. 

Although ‘Australia’s most hated man, Pusey, was released after serving 120 days for assault from Ravenhall prison – wearing a ‘Fake News’ mask – Singh is locked up for a minimum 18 years.

He will be served a ‘modest Christmas lunch’ with ‘cake or plum pudding with custard for dessert’.

The same set menu will be served to drug kingpin Tony Mokbel, Frankston serial killer Paul Denyer who has transitioned in prison to becoming Paula, and John Myles Sharpe, the ‘Mornington Monster’ who killed and dismembered his pregnant wife and their young daughter.

 Christmas Day in a Victorian prison should include toast and cereal for breakfast.

After the modest lunch Mokbel – who is beavering away in prison trying to have his drug convictions overturned, saying they are tainted by the Lawyer X scandal – will have a light dinner.

In mid to late afternoon, cold meat and salad will be delivered to the cells of , mafia don, Rocco Arico, and serial rapist John Xydias, who filmed himself for 15 years sexually assaulting unconscious women.

,Things have quietened down in prison for Arthur Freeman, who is serving a 32 year minimum sentence for throwing his four-year-old daughter Darcey Freeman off Melbourne’s West Gate Bridge in 2009.

Freeman, who got into brawls in Barwon Prison early on in his sentence  due to his ghastly notoriety can schedule video visits from family or friends on days outside of December 25. 

Victoria’s private prisons are able to make their own arrangements and may allow visitors on Christmas day.

In-person visits will only return when 80 per cent of Victorian prisoners are vaccinated across the system.
