Let’s make serious cash
Ibrahim’s boast on drugs: Police
MICHAEL Ibrahim’s alleged drug syndicate planned to flood Australia with five tonnes of MDMA and smuggle 50kg of cocaine in every month, according to police.
A police statement of facts detailed how confident Ibrahim was before the demise of his drug syndicate as he sent a message to an accused Dubaibased drug lord: “Let’s go bro, let(s) make some serious money together lol”.
After allegedly sending three shipments containing almost two tonnes of uncut MDMA, cocaine and ice, a police statement of facts claims Ibrahim’s partners allegedly had drug stockpiles measuring in the tonnes hidden all over the world, which they planned to smuggle here.
The document claims the syndicate members either sent encrypted BlackBerry messages or met at some of Dubai’s most glamorous restaurants to allegedly plan the future imports.
One of the men police claim was part of the future plans was accused European drug lord Nejmi “The Boss” Saki, who allegedly boasted he had 7600kg of MDMA precursor liquid and could produce up to 300kg a week through three factories in the Netherlands.
Police allege Saki made the claim at a June 22 meeting at high-end Dubai restaurant Torro Torro and that at an earlier meeting said he had five tonnes of MDMA “in stock”. The only problem for the syndicate was that the man Saki was talking to was a police operative known as MW1, who is now set to be the main witness against Ibrahim and others.
At the Torro Torro meeting, Saki also allegedly explained he also had a large stockpile of drugs in Turkey.
The next day, Saki sent MW1 a message that said “I prommis (sic) you brother we will do very big jobs together you’ll see”.
Another person court documents say Ibrahim drafted into the syndicate was Dubaibased Australian Steven Elmir, who allegedly offered Michael and MW1 the opportunity to import 50kg of cocaine a month into Australia.
