How Afghan refugee rose to become one of Sydney’s most ruthless gangsters – as it’s revealed the Brothers 4 Life leader ‘plotted to kill’ police ‘to scare off witnesses in a murder trial’

  • Farhad Quami fled wartorn Afghanistan and settled in Australia in 1993
  • His parents and two younger brothers moved to Auburn in Sydney’s west
  • Now the 34-year-old is leader of notorious Muslim gang Brothers 4 Life 
  • On trial for alleged murder and awaiting sentencing for other offences
  • He reportedly ‘plotted to kill’ two detectives to scare off witnesses in trial

Farhad Quami, known on the streets as ‘The Afghan’, has earned a reputation as one of Sydney’s most feared gangsters.

Head of the Blacktown chapter of notorious Muslim gang ‘Brothers 4 Life’, the 34-year-old gang boss is on trial with one of his younger brothers Mumtaz for the alleged 2013 murder of debt collector Joe Antoun.

The feared underworld mobster is also awaiting sentencing for a string of other convicted offences including ordering shootings and manslaughter.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Quami allegedly schemed to kill two senior police detectives in a bid to scare off key witnesses giving evidence in the lengthy trial.

The publication reported that Quami – who vehemently denies the allegations – had obtained the address of one officer and was working on getting the second.

The officers, from the Homicide Squad and the Middle Eastern Organised Crime Squad, were key figures in the investigation of his alleged crimes.

Speaking via his lawyers, Quami told the Daily Telegraph: ‘I’ve never tried to kill a police officer. That has never crossed my mind.’

The detectives were given extensive protection and continued to attend the trial, which resulted in Quami being found guilty of conspiring to murder his rival Mohammed ‘Little Crazy’ Hamzy and the manslaughter of his cousin Mahmoud Quami.

Quami was born in Afghanistan but fled to Australia via India with his parents and two younger brothers in 1993.

‘I was sitting in my classroom and the Russians were bombing the village next to my school,’ Qaumi told the Daily Telegraph through his lawyer while in prison.

The refugee family settled in the multicultural suburb of Auburn in western Sydney.

By the age of 19 he had a criminal record, and after a stint in jail for gun charges in 2005 he started mixing with Bassam Hamzy, founding member of Brothers 4 Life.

After beating a murder charge in 2006, he was allegedly given control of a Brothers 4 Life crew in in Blacktown with the ambitious goal of ‘taking over Sydney.’

‘Put fear in a person’s heart and they’ll obey you,’ Qaumi allegedly told his crew, the Daily Telegraph reported.

‘We’re going to give Sydney something it’s never seen.’

He reportedly ruled his ‘soldiers’ with ruthless authority and regular violence – and by 2012 his gang had built a fearsome reputation in western Sydney.

Things unraveled in 2012 and 2013 as a spree of murders, shootings, bashings and drug deals all appeared to circle back to the notorious Brothers 4 Life gang – which was subject to a violent internal war between conflicting chapters.

Specialist police task forces worked tirelessly and members started getting put behind bars, coming to a head in 2015 when police declared the gang ‘defeated’ – with all key members behind bars, on trial, or dead.

  1. We have to remember “Muhammad was once a refugee taken in by the Jewish City of Medina. Within 5-years, he had driven out, executed, or enslaved every Jews living there & occupied most of the places by production of illegitimate child like Jihadist, Hamas,ISIS,Al-Qaeda, Al-Nusra,,PLO,FTO,army of the Islam etc, this is the nature of the Islam, first refuge & than occupy,than produce, than destroy temples/Churches/ Synagogues etc, wiping out the origins of the land , the non Muslims country should unite & let the world know that refuge/shelter/brutal invasion & majority in numbers does not make the Muslims the rightful owner of that land
