The self-proclaimed Afghani Murderers — also known as the Afghani Mafia Family — is believed to have about a dozen core members, including brothers Mohammad Qais Niazy and Mohammad Wais Niazy, and at least another dozen more associates.
The two brothers, who have multiple aliases, are both facing charges after an investigation into the group’s activity by the Middle Eastern Organised Crime Squad.
Mohammad Qais Niazy was recently arrested by the MEOC squad for firearms offences. The squad would not comment on the group’s activity, but it is understood they have been operating for about a year in an attempt to fill the void left by the demise of the notorious Brothers 4 Life, which is based in southwest Sydney and founded by one of Australia’s most-dangerous criminals — the convicted murderer, drug-dealer and extortionist Bassam Hamzy.
Mohammad Qais Niazy, 23, who has also been known as Ace Niazy and Ali Gewad, was arrested by MEOCS officers about two months ago.
Mohammad Qais Niazy was formally charged with several firearms offences, including possessing a shortened firearm and contravening a firearms prohibition order. When the case goes to court, police prosecutors will allege he is a “core member” of the criminal group.
“MEOCS initiated Strike Force Marten to investigate the organised criminal network of a group of males who refer to themselves as the Afghani Murderers and the Afghani Mafia Family (AMF),” documents show.
“It is clear through investigations that the accused is a core member of the organised criminal group.”
Mohammad Qais Niazy is accused of storing a shortened semi-automatic shotgun at the Wentworthville house of Steven Rados, his co-accused, to avoid detection from police.
The court documents further allege that tape was wrapped around the “stock area” of the gun “in an attempt to avoid any forensic identification”.
Prosecutors allege his DNA was found on the trigger and handle of the gun.
He was given bail on the current charges and is now prohibited from associating with co-accused Steven Rados or entering the suburb of Wentworthville.
Brother Mohammad Wais Niazy, also known as Cisco, is due to appear at the Downing Centre Court in January on commercial drug supply charges.
Prosecutors will allege the 21-year-old was found with more than 270g of methylamphetamine hidden in the filter of a car he was driving in July last year.
