Â Cronulla revenge attackers to be freed
Posted by Martin under Australian Crime Reports
Four men involved in revenge attacks in the aftermath of the Cronulla riot have each been sentenced to a maximum two years’ jail, but will all be free within weeks.
Michael Ceissman, 22, Mahmoud Eid, 20, Stephen Elmir, 20, and Wael Tahan, 21, bashed Jake Schofield, on December 12, 2005, the day after the Cronulla riot.
Mr Schofield suffered facial injuries and memory loss in the unprovoked attack.
All of the men had pleaded guilty to assault occasioning actual bodily harm in company.
In handing down the sentence in the NSW District Court on Friday, Judge Brian Donovan said it had been a planned attack, but took into account the mens’ remorse and their prospects for rehabilitation.
With time already served, Tahan will be eligible for parole on Saturday, Ceissman and Elmir on March 13 and Eid on April 23.
No justice served in this case. These Middle Eastern scumbags get a light punishment for attacking a innocent Australian while George James Radford sits in jail for 7 months for doing nothing wrong at the Cronulla riots.
Much could be said about this, but I don’t have time to comment much today. More later.
