BI­LAL’S JAIL AN­TICS STRETCH SCREWS

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

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.
