Smith sought advice about parole decision re Mohamed Sanoussi


Attorney General Greg Smith SC is seeking urgent advice relating to a case before the State Parole Authority.

Earlier today, the authority decided to grant parole to a man who had been convicted over his role in a series of gang rapes in Sydney in August 2000.

He has served 13 years of a 16 year sentence. The State Parole Authority today decided the earliest date he could be released on parole is 25 September 2013.

It has now become clear that some new and relevant information was not available to the State Parole Authority. This information may have had a bearing on the Authority’s decision.

Mr Smith has sought advice about the mechanisms by which this information can be brought to the attention of the State Parole Authority.

The options being investigated include an appeal of the grant of parole, a re-opening of the hearing, or an application for revocation of parole.
