Sam Ibrahim to be deported to Lebanon as an ‘illegal non-citizen’ as soon as he is released

Onetime bikie boss and convicted gun runner Sam Ibrahim has been refused parole after repeatedly refusing to comply with drug tests in prison. 

The 54-year-old, whose younger brother is retired Sydney night club boss John Ibrahim, was due for release from jail next month but will instead serve at least another year.

John has previously described Sam as his ‘uglier, more heavy-set’ brother – who carried ‘the tattoos along with the bad attitude to match’.

Authorities confirmed Lebanese-born Sam, whose real name is Hassan, has been declared an unlawful non-citizen and will be deported once his jail time is finished.

He will be picked up from prison by Australian Border Force officers and taken to Villawood detention centre or put straight on a plane to Lebanon.

Ibrahim, who is in Long Bay jail, was sentenced in 2018 to nine years with a non-parole period of six years and six months after pleading guilty to the unlawful supply of prohibited firearms.

He appealed against the severity of that sentence and it was reduced to a maximum term of eight and a half years, with a minimum of five years and nine months.

Ibrahim, who spent four years on remand before being sentenced, had an earliest release date of September 8 but on July 9 the State Parole Authority decided against letting him out. 

If he does not make an application to review that decision his parole will considered again on July 15 next year.

Prison sources said that Ibrahim had likely been refused parole because of his failure to follow jail regulations. 

Daily Mail Australia can reveal while the notoriously volatile Ibrahim has not been involved in an recent jailhouse violence he has faced multiple institutional charges while in custody.

Most significantly he has refused to comply with drug tests – refusals are considered failures – up to three times a year.

Ibrahim has had well-documented past problems with drugs, particular cocaine, as detailed in his brother John’s 2017 memoir Last King of the Cross. 

‘Every bad decision, every catastrophe that had fallen upon him and our family, all started after his introduction to cocaine,’ John wrote. 

‘My brother pressed the “f*** it” button that first line of cocaine he had.’ 

John, who looked up to Sam as a ‘legend’ and fearless leader when they were young men, had spent ‘countless millions’ of dollars on legal fees for his brother since then.

‘He spent seventeen years on remand, never getting bail,’ John wrote in his memoir. ‘Who does seventeen years on remand? My brother, that’s who. 

‘For the media and cops Sam is a circus. For me he’s a time-consuming tragedy. The more he becomes a cartoonish criminal for the papers, the less he’s the man I know.’

Ibrahim, who rose from feared bouncer to president of the Nomads chapter at Parramatta, has not been allowed to mix with outlaw motorcycle gang members while in prison.

He is the subject of non-association orders keeping him away from inmates with links to the Nomads, Hells Angels, Comanchero, Finks and Rebels.

John described Sam as having ‘single-handedly ruined the Australian motorcycle club culture’ after being recruited to the Nomads in July 1997.

Until Sam’s arrival, Australian bikie gangs consisted mostly of ‘beer-drinking Anglos watching strippers and riding their bikes’, according to John. Sam let in Middle Eastern and Pacific Islander members. 

‘Sam brought a whole new level of intensity to those clubs, and they’ve expanded and changed because of it,’ John wrote in his memoir. 

‘That’s how into it he was. Then he got equally into drugs and gambling.’

Ibrahim was arrested in April 2014 along with his sister Jazz Dior – formerly known as Maha Sayour – her partner Elvis Mileski and Rose Tattoo drummer Paul DeMarco.

All were charged with conspiring to supply prohibited firearms after a five-month sting operation led to police raids in Sydney and the Illawarra region.

Investigators recovered weapons including machine pistols, semi-automatic handguns and revolvers, pump-action shotguns and an M1 semi-automatic rifle.

Ibrahim had been arranging for Dior and Mileski to supply DeMarco with five Glock pistols which were then to be sold to a buyer who turned out to be an undercover detective. 

Intercepted phone calls revealed Ibrahim, Mileski and Dior ‘actively planned’ to supply guns to DeMarco, according to a statement of facts tendered to the News South Wales District Court.

In the calls Ibrahim repeatedly launched into foul-mouthed tirades at his sister Dior, mostly about her partner Mileski.

‘Tell him I’m gonna cave his f***ing head in,’ Ibrahim said in one conversation. ‘Oh I swear to god I’m gonna do that.’

In another conversation about an upcoming meeting Ibrahim said of an unnamed person: ‘F*** his sister and his dad with my d***’.’

In August 2017 Dior and Mileski were sentenced to 18-month intensive correction orders after pleading guilty to conspiring with each other to unlawfully supply firearms.

DeMarco, who was dealing guns to fund a raging ice habit, also pleaded guilty over his role in the conspiracy and was sentenced to a minimum six years.

In August last year the Court of Criminal Appeal ruled Judge Anthony Blackmore had erred in finding Ibrahim was the ‘essential beneficiary’ of the gun conspiracy.

Chief Justice Tom Bathurst nonetheless described Ibrahim’s offence as a ‘serious one’ and noted his ‘extensive criminal history’.

Ibrahim was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder after a 2011 drive-by shooting in which he was shot in the legs. 

It was reported in 2015 that then Immigration Minister Peter Dutton had revoked Ibrahim’s residency visa on the grounds he failed the federal government’s character test for foreign nationals.   

Siblings Sam, John, Maha (now Jazz), Fadi and Fifi Ibrahim were all born in Lebanon, while youngest brother Michael was born after the family came to Australia in the 1970s.
