High surveillance release for gang leader Gregory Woolley

Before his arrest after the Magot-Mastiff investigation in November 2015, Gregory Woolley was considered one of the leaders of a mafia-biker gang alliance that led organized crime in Montreal. A trusted man of the late godfather Vito Rizzuto, his was the glue that held the alliance together. He took advantage of the SharQc decimation of the HA in 2009 to get closer to Stefano Sollecito, whom cops considered the head of the Montreal mafia. "He's watching my back, I'm watching his" Sollecito said of Woolley on tapes. Five years later, sources are wondering if Sollecito's influence as the leader of the Sicilian clan of the Montreal mafia has wained, along with Woolley's.

The HA are now the strongest in Quebec, by far. Woolley had a direct hand with Maurice Boucher in the plot to kill Raynald Desjardins. This was not unanimous among the bikers. Woolley may no longer have the same importance as before. Woolley has strict conditions. He will not be able to associate with anyone with a criminal background or linked to a criminal organization. A relative of Woolley's, Dany Sprinces-Cadet, was also released on parole three weeks ago, and Jean Winsing Barthelus, in early 2019. None may have contact with each other.

Amad 'Jay' Malkoun

Malkoun purchased the farm from a relative in 2009 for $950k. Repatriated bikie boss Amad 'Jay' Malkoun is set to reap millions from a proposed housing estate on his farm in Donnybrook, 35 km north of Melbourne. The value of the land has increased exponentially and is now worth about $20m, 3 times that when residential development is complete.

Malkoun supplied drug making chemicals to Tony Mokbel at the height of his criminal empire. Police documents released by the Lawyer X Royal Commission have linked the pair for the first time.
Tony Mokbel
Bikie boss and convicted heroin trafficker Amad "Jay" Malkoun returned to Melbourne in June after seven years in Dubai and barely surviving a car bomb in Greece. He is said to need crutches to walk. Malkoun is reported to be negotiating with a senior Mongols figure about defecting.

The return of the former boss of the Comancheros was expected to inflame tensions and it has.
Sydney's south-west is at the center of over a dozen drive-by shootings in recent weeks. Sentenced to a decade in prison in 1988 for $5.5m of heroin, Malkoun has a criminal network spanning Asia and Europe, including Russia, where he started a Comancheros chapter.
Comancheros boss Mick Murray
Fares Abounader, a former ally of slain Comanchero boss Mick Hawi, was killed in a targeted drive-by shooting at his home. His execution marks the 30th shooting in 5 weeks in Sydney and NSW.

Cops believe Abounader was a victim of a targeted hit amid rising tensions between the Comancheros and Bandidos.

DEA busts $1.5m electric narcosub - update

The high-capacity narco submarine was found on the Cucurrupí River in the Chocó area of Colombia. It would have carried some six metric tons of cocaine, valued at around $120m. Most narco submarines carry around 1.6 metric tons of cocaine, worth $30m to 35m. Virtually all narco submarines interdicted at sea have been more correctly termed low-profile vessels (LPVs). They are semi-submersibles, designed to run low in the water to avoid detection. They cannot fully submerge. With an estimated endurance of 12 hours, this narcosub could remain submerged for 32 nautical miles
The Colombian military, working with the DEA, discovered a new type of narcosub that runs on battery power and is designed to completely submerge for short periods. The vessel can carry 6 metric tons of cocaine. The boat carries 10 tons of batteries, giving it enough power to remain submerged for up to 12 hours while running at three knots. Analysts believe the boat was designed to be towed by another boat. Once near its destination, the narcosub would be cut loose and proceed under its own power. After the $1.5m sub unloaded it's cargo, it would be sent to the bottom. Features include a fully enclosed, cylindrical hull, a hex-shaped viewing port with windows for navigating, and four dive planes designed to allow it to submerge underwater.
South American drug cartels invented narcosubs. The boats first appeared as an alternative to go-fast boats, which are more likely to be intercepted. The cartels continuously up their game.

SA prison gang leader Ernest Solomon whacked

Ernest “Ernie Lastig” SolomonThe prison Number gangs are so cruel that sometimes a father kills his own son or the son kills his father because of “this Number we believe in”, said former leader of the 28s gang Ernest “Ernie Lastig” Solomon in a video clip that was recorded before his murder. Solomon was gunned down in Boksburg, Gauteng. His car was forced off the road by a Ford Ranger and then gunmen in that vehicle fired an avalanch of shots into Solomon’s BMW, killing him.

The hit on Solomon was similar to the one carried out on 9 April 2019 in Gauteng on Serbian national Ivan Djordjevic, when gunmen fired shots through the roof of Djordjevic’s bulletproof Mercedes-Benz. "Be careful, you are going to kill your family and your own community and after that your own brothers are going to kill you,” Solomon warned.

Habiba Kajan sues the basterds for $3.3m

Habiba Kajan
Habiba Kajan, 44, has launched a lawsuit against an insurance company for $3.3m after it refused a payout on an arson. Kajan’s home was gutted by a fire on Dec. 19, 2019, less than two weeks after she was arrested as part of Operation Hobart, an investigation into Robert Bartletta's multimillion-dollar gambling ring. The insurer says she violated her policy for many reasons. The house at 203 Commissioners Rd. E. was used to launder proceeds of crime, store illegal guns and facilitate an illegal gambling operation.
The insurer says Kajan violated her policy by not disclosing her links to the Hells Angels. Kajan also misrepresented herself as the sole owner of the home. Kajan bought the property in 2016.

A restriction order on the property prohibits its sale.

Gangster moll recruited kids for drug lines

Naliah Noreen, 23, and her two brothers ran five drug lines in the UK which made or fielded 54,000 calls over a four month period and had up to 1,200 customers. The mother of one forced a 15-year-old boy into becoming a 'runner' after telling him he owed the gang money. He was driven around so he could make door-to-door deliveries of heroin and cocaine. Noreen admitted conspiracy to supply cocaine and heroin plus money laundering.
Her brothers Asad Ali, 19 and Ratib Ali, 20, and their housemate Janaid Rehman, 18 were jailed at earlier hearings. Her boyfriend Mohammed Abu Khan, 28, is serving 90 months in jail.
