Accused of being a key player in the tobacco war, Majid Alibadi is making a bid for release from custody after being discovered with a substantial sum of $270,000. The Melbourne Magistrates’ Court was told that Alibadi, known as the trusted leader of the “Hamad Syndicate” in Melbourne’s northern suburbs, is facing serious allegations. These include orchestrating a series of destructive firebombings that caused significant damage to various establishments in the latter part of the previous year.

Detective Leading Senior Constable Matthew Lindsay from the Luna Taskforce revealed disturbing details during the court proceedings. It was disclosed that Alibadi had a covert device installed in his car during a three-month investigation, shedding light on his alleged involvement in illicit activities. Police suspect Alibadi to be acting as an agent for the syndicate, receiving top-level tasks and instructions.

Despite being granted bail initially, Alibadi’s compliance came into question when he was rearrested for failing to adhere to bail conditions. New charges have been brought against him, including facilitating arson incidents following a home invasion incident in January. The prosecution expressed concerns regarding Alibadi’s access to significant cash reserves, which could potentially enable him to flee the country and pose threats to witnesses.

The case is ongoing, with Magistrate Megan Casey adjourning the hearing to further assess Alibadi’s suitability for residential rehabilitation. As the legal battle continues, questions linger about the extent of Alibadi’s alleged involvement in criminal activities and his potential impact on the ongoing investigations.
