What was one-eyed Osman doing at Hitman’s funeral image

SLAIN hitman Hamad Assaad had many notorious acquaintances, including one-eyed Osman Haouchar who was detained last year after returning from the Syrian border where he told authorities he had been carrying out “humanitarian work”.

Haouchar, 27, was a pallbearer at Assaad’s funeral last Friday, and joined the mob of weeping mourners at Lakemba mosque.

The 29-year-old Hamad Assaad was gunned down by two black-clad shooters outside his Georges Hall home last Tuesday in front of his mother and 12-year-old nephew.

Haouchar, who lost his eye following an accident with a pistol, was released without charge in November after being questioned for more than four hours by Australian Federal Police.

When police raided his home shortly after his return, Houchar mocked: “I would like to thank the NSW Police Force for once again wasting Australian taxpayers’.

He had left Australia in the aftermath of another shooting — of a member of Sydney’s well-known Ibrahim family.

Haouchar’s presence at Assaad’s funeral adds to the web of figures that the contract killer associated with.

Assaad, 29, lived a dangerous life, full of violence and was in constant pursuit of money.

While there was a large crowd in attendance for his funeral, in reality few are mourning the loss of the cold-blooded assassin, who insiders say was “arrogant” and who believed he was “untouchable

Assad was a hitman linked to attempts on the lives of a number of crime families.

His is the third life lost since April as the Western Sydney crime world has erupted in a hail of bullets.

Contract killer Assaad is believed to be behind attempts on the lives of some of Sydney’s most notorious underworld figures and their relatives.

Police also believe he was responsible for the murder of kingpin Walid “Wally” Ahmad.

Assaad ripped off drug gangs as he tried to show he was different to other criminals — more dangerous, more money-hungry, more bloodthirsty.

But whereas old school kingpin Ahmad knew he was going to die and accepted it, Assaad didn’t think anyone had the “balls” to knock him.

And that was his undoing.

Man shot dead in Sydney driveway was targeted




Sydney gangster Raphael Joseph once told the then US secretary of state, Condoleezza Rice, he would be “tortured or killed” if extradited back to Australia to face a murder charge.

Police are now certain he met that fate after sharing a bowl of noodles with friends at The Star casino in Sydney.

One year after his suspected murder, homicide detectives have revealed they believe a trusted associate lured the underworld figure to his death under the guise of a “meeting”.

Police say their investigation is gaining momentum after a team of detectives unravelled Mr Joseph’s connections to a number of criminal networks.

But his family are struggling to cope not knowing how he died or where he is.

“Just give us closure – at least let us know he is dead. I just want my mum to know he’s really dead,” his brother Rafael said.

“At least so he can have a grave, it’s the very least,” added brother Simon.

Mr Joseph, 38, believed to be a founding member of Assyrian gang DLAST HR, was dining with two close friends at Fat Noodle on March 20, 2014, when he received a text on his Blackberry.

Shortly afterwards, he asked one of his friends to drive him in his white Mercedes to a car park near Auburn McDonald’s to “meet someone”.

It was 11.15pm when the pair drove into dimly lit Dartbrook Road and pulled up behind a late model silver Holden Commodore, facing in the direction of Parramatta Road.

Mr Joseph, who has previously gone by the name of Rafi Tooma, and is known as “Huss” or “Hussoney”, told his friend to wait for 30 minutes before getting into the back seat of the Commodore.

His friend waited until 4am but Mr Joseph never came back.

The officer in charge of the case, Detective Sergeant Glenn Morfoot, said Mr Joseph, who was born in Iraq, was a highly sophisticated operator who worked at an international level with many different crime syndicates to import drugs.

“We believe a particular person or persons lured him to that meeting, double crossed him and we also strongly believe that the whole purpose of that meeting was for the sole purpose of kidnapping and murdering him,” Detective Sergeant Morfoot said.

“Obviously somebody who is well known to him and was trusted by him so much that he was prepared to go there and get into this car by himself, which is massive for somebody who operates at his high level – that is a fairly high level of trust,” he said.

He said police believed Mr Joseph had access to large amounts of cash and drugs and whoever killed him did so for financial gain.

“There was definitely a motivation in terms of getting hold of Joseph the person, rather than just a straight hit,” he said.

His brothers admit Mr Joseph led a mysterious life but he rarely spoke to them about what he did.

They cannot understand why anyone would want to harm their “gentle brother” who adored his nieces and nephews.

He had just been on a 10-day trip to Dubai with friends and watched soccer with his brother Simon two days before his disappearance.

“The whole family has collapsed because of this – it is a situation that is unbelievable and we don’t know how to deal with it. It’s been a year and we don’t know what to do,” Rafael said.

“I swear I cry 20 times a day, when I’m driving … and I cry and I think, why does it have to be this way?”

Detectives are not discounting Mr Joseph’s chequered past, but say a number of people have come forward about his activities in the days leading up to his death.

Mr Joseph was previously the subject of a four-year international manhunt after he was wanted in relation to the shooting murder of his alleged rival Bronx Boys gang member, Dimitri Debaz, outside Sydney’s Sefton Playhouse hotel on December 13, 2002.

Mr Joseph fled but was arrested in San Diego in 2006 by immigration officials, who later discovered he was one of NSW’s most wanted criminals.

In the petition to Condoleezza Rice, Mr Joseph’s US lawyer explained why his client had gone into hiding after the Debaz murder.

“A friend of [Mr Joseph’s], Sadi Jajo, was kidnapped a few months later, beaten up, shot twice in each leg, had a caustic liquid poured on his neck, and then dumped on the street,” the petition said.

“His kidnappers were attempting to obtain from him [Mr Joseph’s] location.”

Charges were not pursued after Mr Joseph was brought back to Australia.

Detective Sergeant Morfoot urged anyone who knew about Mr Joseph’s suspected murder to come forward, even if it was just anonymously, to let his family know where his body was.

Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000.

Claudia Ochoa Felix hit squad mexico image www.crimefiles (1)

Claudia Ochoa Felix looks like Kim Kardashian, who she’s reportedly a fan of, and wields a hot pink AK-47. She’s also allegedly the boss of a ruthless Mexican assassination squad called Los Antrax.

Other times she’s taking selfies of her bangin’ lipstick.

Like, sometimes she just hangs out in skintight dresses, caressing a gold-plated assault rifle. 

Naturally, the Empress of Antrax has her own Instagram account. I guess when your job is to literally kill people for massive amounts of money, you’re not afraid of keeping a public record of your glamorous lifestyle. Once again: even if your job is to literally kill people for massive amounts of money.

The Sinaloa cartel, by whom Los Antrax is contracted, is apparently “the most powerful drug trafficking organisation in the world,” thought to be responsible for most of the heroin smuggled into America.&

When the body of 23 year old Yurina Castillo – who looked like Felix and came from the same area – turned up, police believed it to be a botched assassination attempt on Felix. But she keeps on updating her Instagram nonetheless.

And of course, the Daily Mail is quick to remind you that there have been 100,000 estimated deaths since 2006 in the various drug-related violence in Mexico. Claudia Ochoa Felix’s lifestyle might look cool, but the real Kim Kardashian – one hopes – never killed anyone.

Felix, on the other hand, is allegedly complicit in the kind of systemic crime which is destroying Mexico.

Looking good in leopard print doesn’t erase the deaths, the political corruption, and the national instability the Sinaloa cartel perpetuates.
