Mohammed Skaf Biography Mohammed Skaf Wiki
Notorious Sydney gang rapist Mohammed Skaf, who has spent more than half of his life in prison for his “terrible” crimes, will be paroled next month under difficult conditions.
Skaf, 38, spent two decades in prison after being convicted in Sydney in 2000 for a series of gruesome rapes involving 14 other men, including the gang leader, his brother, Bilal.

Announcing its decision, the National Parole Board said Skaf’s close supervision over the past two years and two months of his parole was the surest route to his reinstatement.
Skaf’s unconditional release at the end of his 23-year prison term in early 2024 would have posed an unacceptable risk, the agency said.
“This is the only opportunity in the small window of time we have left to monitor a safe transition in the community,” said SPA President David Frearson, SC.
“Sharing without structure or supervision does not make sense for the protection of the community.”
The SPA added that it “recognizes that the parole decision can frighten its victims and the community at large.”
The 38-year-old will be released from October 1 to 8.
After his release, Skaf is subject to strict probation conditions, including 24/7 electronic surveillance and a ban on contact with his victims and those responsible.
In addition, you are not allowed to participate in the LGAs of Liverpool, Fairfield, Blacktown and Parramatta.
When he was 17, Skaf and other gang members lured teenagers into public places by promising them to smoke marijuana.
Some were then arrested and s*xually assaulted several times.
Skaf has been eligible for parole since 2018 and served three and a half years after his first possible release date.
He served 20 years and 10 months of his maximum sentence of 22 years, 11 months and 30 days in prison.
His parole order is in effect until his sentence expires on January 1, 2024.
If you violate any of the conditions of your probation, Skaf will be returned to custody.
