Let’s make se­ri­ous cash

Ibrahim’s boast on drugs: Po­lice

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS - BRENDEN HILLS

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.
