Hamzy became a police target after his name was mentioned in court last week The Daily Telegraph has reported.

Police suspect he was passing information outside of Goulburn’s Supermax prison to help distance key players in the teen’s death.  

Despite being one of the state’s more supervised prisoners with the highest security available, Hamzy has managed to continue his reign of terror on people in the outside world.

Police are currently investigating how exactly he was able to get information of out jail and influence the findings in the current investigation of the murder.

Brayden, who was 15 at the time, was asleep in his bedroom at his mother’s home in Glenfield in Sydney’s southwest in April last year when a gunman stormed the property and shot him at point blank range. 

The murder, allegedly carried out by Conrad Craig, is believed to be a revenge slaying for Brayden’s older brother Joshua, 20 who allegedly fatally stabbed Adam Abu-Mahmoud, 18, in a brawl in Panania. 

Joshua Dillon pleaded not guilty to the murder. 

Police believe Adam’s uncle Abdul Abu-Mahmoud financed the hit on Brayden as an act of revenge.

He faced charges of accessory after the fact to murder and perverting the course of justice last week.

It is alleged he offered $40,000 to Craig to sign a false document, written by the Abu Mahmoud family, that distanced Abdul from the crime. 

As the police begin to close in on the investigation, Magistrate Sharon Freund still believed they were bold assertions and the lack of details meant she couldn’t assess the strength of the case.

Abu- Mahmoud has since been released on conditional bail. 

Last month, Investigators arrested Craig’s sister, Kimberly Craig and Sophie Massie and Torek Ayoub for their alleged involvement.

The investigation continues.
