A Skaf gang rapist who was freed from jail after fourteen years went on to become a drug dealer living just around the corner from the scene of his sex crimes.

Mohamed Ghanem, 35, now faces up to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to dealing about a kilogram of the drug ice, with a street value of about $140,000.

Ghanem was described as the ‘enthusiastic lieutenant’ of rapist ringleader Bilal Skaf, when he, Skaf and six friends raped two schoolgirls, 17 and 18, in August 2000.

And court documents seen by Daily Mail Australia have revealed how Ghanem once again embraced a life of crime after walking free from prison in December 2015.

Less than two years after his release, Ghanem was on the phone, speaking in code and trying to arrange a large drug deal with Brisbane businessman Hussein Sarhan.

Meanwhile, he had moved back into his Greenacre home – just around the corner from Northcote Park, the infamous site where he raped and assaulted two girls.

Court documents revealed Ghanem and the businessman used car brands as code words to negotiate the purchase of 993 grams of methylamphetamine.

In an agreed statement facts tendered to the NSW District Court, Ghanem is heard asking Hussein: ‘Do you want the BMW or the Mercedes? The Mercedes right?
