List of bikies murdered in Sydney underworld killings

A string of bikie murders may lead to an outbreak of underworld revenge killings as police prepare for an increase in gang violence.

New South Wales Police Assistant Commissioner Mal Lanyon said they were focusing on stopping retaliation for recent bikie deaths.

The latest involved was former Comanchero kingpin Mahmoud ‘Mick’ Hawi, 37, who was shot by a masked gunman as he sat alone in his Mercedes SUV after a workout at Fitness First in Rockdale, Sydney on Thursday.

‘One of the things that we will focus on… is ensuring we put sufficient resources out there to prevent any retribution that may occur as a result of his shooting,’ Assistant Commissioner Lanyon told the Daily Telegraph.

Detective Superintendent Debbie Wallace, head of the NSW Gangs Squad, said bikies did not have loyalties.

‘It may seem romantic to join some sort of brotherhood but if you want to leave it comes at a significant cost – personal, financial and physical,’ she said.

Hawi’s assassination came despite the Camanchero gang head keeping a low public profile.

Days earlier he had allegedly arranged to meet a so-called peacemaker because he knew a rival had put a bounty on his head – but the meeting never happened.  

Police are probing six theories as to why Hawi was killed, with a police source saying ‘the man had more enemies than I’ve had hot dinners’.
