With Tone all set for a term in jail, should MUI make its' move? Shall we try to Get Zarah at an ungarded moment?
(we will scan the article as it is not online!)
Accused drug trafficker and multi-millionaire Melbourne businessman Antonios "Tony" Mokbel has failed in a bid to overturn an order that has frozen his assets.
The 40-year-old's assets, valued at an estimated $20 million, were frozen by a Victorian County Court order in 2001.
If Tone has $20 mil officially, then imagine what he has in liquid cash assets- like his sock drawer, bread basket (no pun) and ceiling space.
But there is a kicker:
Mokbel's lawyer, Phillip Priest QC, earlier told the Supreme Court the order to freeze his client's assets did not make provisions for him to meet reasonable living expenses.
Like keeping Zarah in diamonds, and keeping his own belly full.
He's wasting away before our very EYES!
Though he's not gambling down the Crown no more

A man charged with murdering a Melbourne crime patriarch has been rushed to hospital suffering a suspected stroke after collapsing in a Melbourne court dock.
The pre-trial committal hearing for three men charged with the murder of Lewis Moran, patriarch of a key crime family, was supposed to start at the Melbourne Magistrates' Court today.
Keith Faure, 54, who is charged with Moran's murder, collapsed in the dock as the committal hearing started this morning and was taken to hospital by ambulance.
His lawyer, James Montgomery, told the court his client had complained of vomiting blood and had suffered a possible stroke.
The only stroke he's has is hand-on-cock.
Meanwhile, back in court, modern day Kath Pettingill:
Moran's widow Judy, sat silently in the front row of the public gallery of the court as the drama unfolded.
On the other side of town, doctors work frantically to save the life of a poor individual:
However, Noel Faure was not in court and his lawyer told the magistrate his client was ill and in hospital.
Noel Faure suffered injuries after he slashed his wrists and swallowed a set of nail clippers last week, a Barwon Prison has spokesman said.
Heart wrenching, action packed stuff...
