Two arrested in relation to alleged murder of Brothers For Life founder’s brother Mejid Hamzy
Two people have been arrested in a breakthrough in the investigation into the alleged murder of a notorious gangster’s brother.
Mejid Hamzy, the younger brother of Brothers For Life founder Bassam, was fatally shot outside his Condell Park home last October.
NSW Police last week released further CCTV in hopes it would lead to arrests.
On Wednesday, they announced that it had.
A 38-year-old man is expected to be charged with murder, while a 44-year-old man is expected to be charged in relation to the concealment of a vehicle allegedly used in the incident, police said.
The police appeal came weeks after Mejid Hamzy’s cousin Bilal Hamze was gunned down in Sydney’s CBD.
The 34-year-old was sprayed with bullets on the evening of June 17 as he left an upmarket Japanese restaurant in what police described as a “brutal execution-style murder”.
He was rushed to St Vincent’s Hospital, where he died.
A police strike force is investigating whether his murder is related to ongoing tensions between the rival Hamzy and Alameddine families.
Bassam Hamzy is currently in Goulburn Supermax prison, where he has spent most of his adult life for murder and drug-related convictions.
