Mokbel: how you can help...

As you all know, we are always willing to help the fine members of Victoria's Police force.

Tony Mokbel is on the run. And while we have no real idea where he is, we think we can assist the police and members of the public apprehend this dangerous criminal.

He is a master of disguise, so we've prepared some deadly accurate photoshop renditions of likely disguises he will use. For contrast, you can see the originals and then see just how clever he is:

And now, with a simple pair of glasses and moustache- he's an ordinary bloke again!

Incredible n'est pas?

Of course, as Tony lives in a fantasy land, he might just use that in his favour:
From this:

To this:

Arrrr me hearties, I've no idea who this lubber Mokbel is, to be sure arrrr!!

Note the attention to detail: the hat, the patch, the shirt and a bird. His own mother would not recognise him. Nor would she want to.

Lastly, you need to understand, gentle reader, that Tony may just indulge some of his personal depravations as part of his getaway. It pains us, but we must present the facts as they stand:
From this:

To this:

I...I...I...I.. like you verrrry much

Please- report his whereabouts. And if you do see him, please do not approach. He has been on the run a few days now and is likely to be very hungry.

    Hello readers. You obviously don't know me but I know all of you, as I've been reading with great interest your insightful theories and other stuff about the underworld in general and recently about me, in particular

    Well you'll be happy to note that I'm very much alive and well, although I'm currently in need of a cubbyhole to hide in for a while. Like....for the rest of my life. Can anybody help me out? Come on guys, I'm down to my last 5 million. Can't you help a fella out?

    Anyway, keep up the good work

    Regards and Shalom

    Looks like Tone Capone is facing a 4 million dollar tax invoice from Mr Taxman. His empire is crumbling

    Al Capone died a mentalcase from a serious dose of untreated venereal disease. Wonder what Tone Capone will die of (severe weight loss through all the running he'll be doing?)

    Interesting article on Victor Peirve and Veniamen. Mokbel's involved somewhere further up the food chain?

    Peirce killed for welshing on 'hit'

    AdvertisementPOLICE have made a major breakthrough in Melbourne's gangland war investigation, uncovering new evidence on the shooting of notorious gunman Victor Peirce.

    Detectives now believe Peirce was gunned down because he accepted, and then reneged on, a contract to kill another powerful underworld figure.

    Peirce was shot dead as he sat in his car in Bay Street, Port Melbourne, on May 1, 2002. Police have established that the gunman was prolific hitman Andrew "Benji" Veniamin, himself later shot dead by industrial mediator Mick Gatto in a self-defence shooting in a Carlton restaurant on March 23, 2004.

    Detectives from the Purana gangland taskforce are convinced Peirce accepted a $200,000 contract to kill standover man and drug dealer Jason Moran. They also know a second career criminal was shot as punishment when he failed to kill Moran.

    Peirce was paid $100,000 in advance but then refused to carry out the contract and is believed to have warned Moran his life was in danger.

    Moran was a prominent mourner at Peirce's funeral service at St Peter and Paul's Catholic Church in South Melbourne on May 9.

    But Peirce's warning did not save Moran. He and his friend Pasquale Barbaro were shot dead while watching a junior football clinic at Essendon North on June 21, 2003.

    Police say Veniamin was involved in at least five Melbourne underworld murders. He was the trigger man or back-up when Frank Benvenuto (Beaumaris, May 2000), Dino Dibra (West Sunshine, October 2002), Nik Radev (Coburg, April 2003) and Paul Kallipolitis (Sunshine, October 2003) were shot dead.

    Peirce was Benvenuto's best friend and was hired as his bodyguard after the fruit and vegetable wholesaler felt his life was in danger.

    Although Peirce blamed Veniamin for the murder the two gunman decided to hold peace talks soon after Benvenuto's death.

    According to Peirce's widow, Wendy, Veniamin wanted to know if Victor Peirce would try to avenge the death of his best friend.

    "Benji wanted a meeting with Victor and they met in a Port Melbourne park," Wendy Peirce said.

    "He wanted to know if Victor was going to back up for Frank. He was his best mate. Victor took a gun and Benji would have been armed."

    She said her husband told her he and Veniamin had agreed there would be no payback.

    Police say Peirce was not the only gangster shot after he refused to carry out a contract to kill Moran.

    Police suspect convicted murderer Mark Anthony Smith also accepted a contract he did not fulfil. But an attempt to kill Smith failed when he was shot in the neck in the driveway of his Keilor home on December 28, 2002. He recovered and fled to Queensland for several months.

    Victor Peirce was a notorious armed robber who was one of four men charged and acquitted of the ambush murders of two young police constables in Walsh Street, South Yarra, on October 12, 1988.

    Wendy Peirce told The Age late last year that although her husband was found not guilty of the murders of Constables Steven Tynan and Damian Eyre, he had organised the killings as payback for the death of his friend Graeme Jensen, who had been shot dead in Narre Warren by police the day before.

    The parents of Constables Tynan and Eyre have asked for an inquest following Wendy Peirce's confession of her husband's involvement in the Walsh Street killings.

    As Veniamin is dead and cannot be charged, the shooting of Peirce is expected to be reviewed by a coronial inquest.

    The driver who took Veniamin to Bay Street in a stolen Commodore is still alive. The car was found burnt out in Taylors Road, St Albans.

    There remains a $100,000 reward for information leading to solving the Peirce murder.

    The Purana taskforce has laid charges relating to seven underworld killings.

    Police say convicted millionaire drug trafficker Tony Mokbel jumped bail and fled Australia last month, days after he learnt he was the subject of a Purana murder investigation.


Don't screw this up.
