"Kermit McBeath" (2020-08-28)


A tough talking Melbourne judge has slammed two 'cowards' who stabbed drug lord Tony Mokbel in an extraordinary verbal blast at their sentence. 

1 year agoTeira Bennett and Eldea Teuira, both 22, were on Wednesday sentenced to spend at least seven years each behind bars for stabbing the 53-year-old in the exercise yard of Victoria's Barwon Prison in February last year. 

The young thugs had earlier laughed like banshees during their County Court of Victoria sentence.

But Judge Elizabeth Gaynor managed to silence them in the closing moments of her sentence after which she declared 'I've departed from script'. 

The respected judge blasted the young prisoners, warning them their lives would be left in ruin if they continued their violent ways. 

For more than four minutes she let fly, hammering the proud hoodlums with her words as hard as they had pounded their hapless victim with shivs and boots.  

'Let me tell you, gentleman, in a few years GFAM and the bros are not going to do it for you ... you're going to want a life,' she said.

'You may think you're heroes within the jail but do you think in 20 years time that's going to matter?'

Judge Gaynor painted a grim picture of the lives the men could expect if they continued to offend and suggested they were both cowards for the attack on Mokbel. 

'The only reason you are getting any attention is because it was Tony Mokbel. At the end of the day you two young blokes - two on one - mauled and maimed a 53-year old man,' she said. 

The pair had appeared in court via videolink, which was left playing to the public after Judge Gaynor left the bench. 

'What a dog, hey,' Bennett exclaimed. 

'What a f**king psycho,' Teuira responded.

The pair had just moments earlier been sentenced to 10 years in jail with non-parole periods of seven years. 

The sentences were lumped on top of jail they were already serving at the time, meaning Bennett must serve at least eight years and Teuira eight and a half. 

'That's a fair whack,' Bennett chuckled. 

Both men seemed confused upon hearing the sentence and continued to laugh and chat among themselves while still on the public video link. 

'Oh well, it is what it is,' Teuira told Bennett. 

When Teuira's barrister warned the men they were still being broadcast, Teuira sent a message to the public. 

'I love jail. I love jail,' he shouted as Bennett cackled with laughter.  

The court had been packed with socially distanced supporters of the pair, with two men being removed briefly before the sentence even began. 

The prisoners had continued to litter the courtroom from afar with profanity while waiting for justice to be served. 

As the hearing began, they chatted and failed to stand as the judge entered the court room. 

Mokbel was king-hit and stabbed seven times  by the men with cutlery and sharpened wires and kicked in the head, knocking out his teeth.

So violent was the attack, the court refused to release footage of it to the media. 

'It's a bit like a snuff movie if you like. It's a killing. I'm not releasing it for public consumption,' she said.  






Mokbel was unable to move from the moment he was attacked and failed to defend himself as the pair assaulted him









Bleeding from his mouth and chest, Mokbel was airlifted to Royal Melbourne Hospital and was considered to be in a serious but stable condition














The ageing gangster was unable to move from the moment he was attacked and failed to defend himself as the pair assaulted him.

As the assault attracted attention from other inmates and prison guards, the men could be heard screaming: 'You're not an enforcer, this is what you get for talking to the screws you f**king dog.'

Both men broke into laughter upon hearing their comments again on Wednesday. 

They had smiled and chuckled throughout most of the sentence.  

The attack, which left Mokbel with bleeding on the brain, is believed to have been sparked by a news report claiming Mokbel was a 'top enforcer' in jail.

On the same day the report was released, Mokbel was approached by prison officers questioning whether he had concerns about what it said.

The report detailed how Mokbel had allegedly disrupted an extortion racket being run in the prison by Pacific Islanders, who had targeted a teenager locked up on assault charges.

'All he has to do is say the word, and people listen,' a source said at the time. 

The gangland figure said he wasn't concerned by the report and believed it was just a money-making ploy. 

But in the months after his attack a journalist was threatened with death by Mokbel's goons on the outside. 

Just an hour before the frenzied jail house attacked, Mokbel had attended Teuira's 21st birthday celebrations, where the pair 'embraced' and were seen chatting. 

Bleeding from his mouth and chest, Mokbel was airlifted to Royal Melbourne Hospital in a serious but stable condition. 

A second victim, aged 31, 웹툰 야짤 was also injured while trying to help Mokbel, but returned to prison after spending a night in hospital. 

Mokbel was so severely injured he underwent emergency surgery and was placed in a coma. 

Prosecutor Kristie Churchill said both men had shown 'no insight, no remorse and no explanation as to why they attacked Mokbel in the exercise yard last year. 

Both men had already been serving serious jail time for violent offences and now spend their time in 22-hour lockdown. 

In scenes reminiscent of the AFL Brownlow Medal broadcast, the men smiled as their extensive criminal histories were read out to the court.  

In sentencing, Judge Gaynor said she accepted the brutal attack was a direct result of the newspaper article and the men's attempt to restore honour to their jailhouse gang 'GFAM'.
