BILAL’S JAIL ANTICS STRETCH SCREWS
HIS sparse criminal record doesn’t back up Bilal Haouchar’s status as one of the state’s most feared criminals, but his jail record does.
Haouchar, who has a longstanding hatred of the Ibrahim family, has only one entry on his adult criminal record.
It is a good behaviour bond after he pleaded guilty to being an accessory after the fact to the murder of Ali Eid, who was shot dead in Punchbowl in 2012. Haouchar, who was originally charged with murder, spent more than two years behind bars with his bail refused waiting for the case to conclude.
In the time he has spent in prison, where he was often classified as a high-risk inmate, Haouchar’s record stretches to three pages and he has been charged with breaking jail rules on 42 occasions. He was charged with intimidation seven times and convicted on six. For that, he was ordered off buyups for 60 days, was banished to his cell for 17 days, given no contact orders and banned from watching TV or using the amenities for two weeks.
In March 2015, he was given a week in his cell for fighting.
He has also been punished for using an unlawful phone, entering other cells, damaging property, assault, smoking, giving false information and disobeying directions.
