Most wanted … Comanchero chief Mahmoud “Mick” Hawi is wanted by police and a rival bikie gang / file

BOTH the police and the bikies want him – Comanchero chief Mahmoud “Mick” Hawi may just be Sydney’s most wanted man.  

The Daily Telegraph has revealed Hawi is said to have a $100,000 bounty on his head issued by a rival gang, possibly the Hells Angels. 


Police are also seeking to find Hawi and question him over a fatal brawl with rival Hells Angels at Sydney airport. 

Police have been unable to find Hawi. Instead, they have been involved in negotiations with his lawyers to have him present himself to police for questioning. 

Hawi’s laywer Lesly Randle said Hawi had arranged to meet gangs squad detectives at a police station yesterday but that this did not go ahead because his barrister “became unavailable”. Negotiations over a meeting were continuing. 

Yesterday, Hawi was not at the two properties in Sydney’s south linked on the public record to the 28-year-old Comanchero national president. 

His large family home in southern Sydney had mail piled up at the front gate and no one answered the door. 

There was also no answer at another address, also in southern Sydney, a housing commission unit linked to one of Hawi’s companies. 

Both bikie and law enforcement sources have told The Daily Telegraph that they have heard of the alleged bounty and that Hawi’s life is at risk. “He’ll be holed up in a hotel somewhere,” one said. 

A source said he was informed the bounty had been issued from the “cashed-up” Hells Angels, whose Guildford sergeant-at-arms Peter Zervas, 32, is in hospital after being shot on Sunday night at Punchbowl. 

No charges have been laid over the shooting. Zervas’ brother Anthony, 29, was killed in the airport brawl allegedly between the Hells Angels and Comanchero seven days before. 

The Comanchero are strongly suspected of being behind Peter Zervas’ shooting, as a “pre-emptive” strike against a revenge attack over his brother’s murder. 

“There’s no doubt if the Angels found out where Hawi was, in my view, they’d go after him, whether there was a price or not,” one source said. 

Ms Randle told The Daily Telegraph she was unaware of a bounty on Hawi’s head.

  1. Looks like Mahmud can’t wait until the afterlife to get acquainted with hell’s angels.
