SELF-DESCRIBED professional gambler Tony Mokbel will provide a $1 million surety and observe a night-time curfew after his bail on a Commonwealth drugs charge was extended yesterday in the Supreme Court.
Mokbel, 40, of Southbank, faces trial on February 1, having pleaded not guilty to being knowingly concerned in importing a trafficable quantity of cocaine.
Justice Bill Gillard ordered Mokbel to report twice daily to police, surrender his passport, not contact witnesses and give 24 hours' notice if he wants to change his address.
Son Of Sly says:
Tony isn't even a real crim- he doesn't come from a criminal background, he was a legit bloke, a clean skin.
He had a late start in crime, but with his wealth that he made with legit ventures he was able to climb the ladder quickly.
It's said that he's never personally knocked anyone but it's been said that he paid Benji $100,000 for the Redev hit after he was bashed by his minder and a few blokes fromW.A. (It's said that this bashing contributed to Benji going over to the Williams crew from the Carlton Crew)
He teamed up with the William's lot after the Moran's power went as he thought it was the smart thing to do and after he had the shit kicked out of him by Gatto's mates it really only left the Williams lot.
I think Tony will beat the charge on the 1st case but has a problem with the 2nd and a bit of "time out" may occur. His brothers are still around but not for long as there is already a few new kids on the block and I don't think they give a fuck about any cunt- least of all the Mokbel bros.
Tony has never done any real jail so it will do him good, but lets say this now "INSIDE PEOPLE IN FOR LIFE DON'T GIVE A FUCK WHO YOU THINK YOU ARE" on the outside you can try and be anyone you want but inside the most feared and violent run the show, so he has two choices:
1: He better pay to be looked after.
2: He better pay to be looked after.
If he thinks he's going to be in the same unit as the rest of the new school he should think again, they were all in Charlotte unit together: Brincat,Williams & Dad, Rocco Arico, Radev, Mokbel and a few others at one point many years ago, there is not way this time round, Mokbel ran the joint at that time and Carl was a model inmate but was into everything.
Brincat only behaved so he could get out but it's also been said that he fell out with Radev over who ran the drugs in the unit and killed him when both were on the out- "bullshit" Benji's work there.
It must be said that the unit they were in never had any really feared inmates at that time.
