Skaf gang member Mohamed Sanoussi, 29, was yesterday granted release from jail where he was serving time for a series of gang rapes in 2000. Officials believed he was a changed man.
But the State Parole Authority (SPA) said today it had revoked Sanoussi's parole after it emerged his two brothers, a cousin and a friend had been arrested.
It said his post-release accommodation would be unsuitable because two of the men in question lived there.
The SPA said it had received submissions from Corrective Services NSW recommending the parole order be revoked.
“The authority agreed with the CSNSW submission that the previously approved accommodation was not suitable in light of the new information,” the SPA said in a statement.
Sanoussi had been granted parole under strict conditions, including a ban on him associating with the Brothers For Life gang.
Parole had been opposed by police, who claimed members of the gang had been meeting at Sanoussi's family home.
Today it emerged his brothers Ahmed Sanoussi, 30, and Mahmoud Sanoussi, 28, had been charged with bashing a cleaner at Revesby in Sydney's southwest.
His cousin Muhammad Sanoussi, 29, and another man, 31-year-old Ar'med Bre'aery, were also charged.
