Former Crown prosecutor supports Mohammed Skaf’s parole
A former NSW Crown prosecutor has addressed the possibility of Sydney gang rapist Mohammed Skaf being released on parole.
38-year-old Skaf has spent two decades in prison and has been denied parole several times since 2018 when he was first eligible for release.
He’s now likely to be freed on parole within weeks, because the Parole Board wants to ensure he can be monitored in the community over the final part of his sentence.
Former Crown prosecutor Margaret Cunneen SC, who prosecuted Skaf, told Ben Fordham it’s important to remember Skaf was 17-years-old at the time of the crimes.
“He’s 38 now, he must have learnt something, he must have matured a bit.
“He knows that if he puts a foot wrong … he’s back in jail.”
