Ex- bikie charged again for shooting
A FORMER Brothers For Life gang member has been charged for a second time with attempting to fix his court case for shooting a fellow gang member.
Michael Odisho, a former member of BFL’s Bankstown chapter, faced Central Local Court on Thursday charged with allegedly offering money to a man to provide a fake affidavit that was to be to be used in his appeal.
The man who police allege was to provide the affidavit, Ahmed Hoblos, has also been charged.
Odisho was sentenced to nine years in jail in 2016 after being found guilty in the NSW District Court of loading the gun used to shoot a fellow gang member in the leg.
That gang member allegedly skimmed $7000 worth of cocaine from the gang’s supply.
In that case, police allege Odisho paid the victim, a man known as Witness A, $23,000 to change his evidence and promised him a further $200,000 if he was acquitted.
Witness A told the court Odisho had nothing to do with the shooting but the jury found him guilty anyway and he was sentenced to nine years in jail.
At the end of the trial, police charged Odisho with attempting to pervert the court of justice.
Police now allege Odisho attempted a similar tactic when challenging the result in the NSW Court of Criminal Appeal.
Odisho is accused of having Hoblos provide a fake affidavit to the court that said he was not involved in the shooting.
The CCA rejected Odisho’s appeal on February 28.
He appeared in Central Local Court on Thursday charged with one count of perverting the course of justice between 2015 and 2018 and another of participating in a criminal group. Hoblos will face court on June 13.
