Notorious Australian Brothers 4 Life founder and a convicted terrorist involved in a jailhouse bust-up have faced court over the violent incident.
Bassam Hamzy, 40, was allegedly bashed by convicted terrorist Talal Alameddine, 26, during a fight inside Goulburn’s Supermax prison – believed to be the country’s toughest jail.
In October last year, the pair were seen having a ‘heated discussion’ while in the rear yard of the correctional centre.
The Daily Telegraph reported Hamzy looked annoyed before he and Alameddine allegedly began to physically fight and throw punches at each other before they were separated.
Medical staff attempted to treat the pair but both refused to be seen and neither have spoken about what happened or what caused the alleged altercation.
On New Year’s Eve, Strike Force Raptor South charged them both with affray.
They both appeared at Goulburn Local Court via video link on Wednesday, but Alameddine was adjourned to March 20, while Hamzy’s matter was adjourned to February 27.
Hamzy is expected to call the prison home until at least 2035.
He was initially imprisoned for the 1998 murder of a man outside a Sydney nightclub.
His sentence was extended by 11-and-a-half years when he masterminded a methylamphetamine ring from inside the prison, delivering more than a kilogram of the drug to Melbourne.
