Lawyer, Supermax prisoner arrested in connection with teen’s murder

SYDNEY: Police has arrested a criminal defence lawyer and notorious Supermax prisoner following ongoing investigations into the shocking execution-style murder of a teenager.

Brayden Dillon, 15, was found shot in bed in his Glenfield home, south-west of Sydney, on April 14, in 2017.

He was rushed to The Children’s Hospital at Westmead in a critical condition, where he later died.

Since the teen’s death, seven people have been charged in connection with the murder, which has been linked to gang activity and called a revenge killing by police.

Police today arrested a Sydney criminal lawyer in Glebe, in connection with alleged commercial drug supply and participation in a criminal group, NSW Police said in a statement.

Police also arrested notorious Supermax prisoner Bassam Hamzy, founder of the Brothers for Life gang, according to The Daily Telegraph, who jeered at the camera while being moved from Goulburn Supermax for questioning by detectives.

It’s believed Hamzy remains the leader of a criminal group.

A woman, 49, from the Riverina region was also arrested. Police allege she was involved in the supply of the drugs.

The three arrests came as police continue their investigation into the horrific murder of Brayden.

Police will allege that during their investigations into the murder, they uncovered an alleged commercial drug supply syndicate, which Hamzy was operating from within the prison, according to Seven News.

Hamzy has been behind bars for more than 20 years, convicted of murder.
