BIKER NEWS: Feared Mongol bikie Mohammad Akbar Keshtiar could spend three more years inside

BN- A bikie who police feared would recruit dozens of members to the Mongols when he was released from prison could be kept behind bars for three more years.

Mohammad Akbar Keshtiar had been due for parole in February but remains in Barwon Prison, where he wields such significant power that police are braced for an increase in bikie crime when he is released.

Keshtiar, known as Afghan Ali, is serving a sentence for the attempted murder of a man and a woman he gunned down while on bail in 2003, and for shooting a security guard at a Prahran nightclub.

Keshtiar, 45, was recruited to the Mongols while serving a minimum 12-year sentence in prison. He will complete his sentence in August 2018.


Relatives of Keshtiar are already associating with the Mongols, but none of them are patched members.

The Mongols have become Melbourne's most powerful bikie gang, and Keshtiar's relatives are associates of several well-known members.

Their associates include a senior Mongol who is on bail after being charged over a $6 million drug importation that allegedly involved heroin cultivated in Afghanistan. The man, a close friend of former Bandido enforcer Toby Mitchell, cannot be named.

The Age revealed in February that Keshtiar is the leader of a gang of Muslim prisoners held in maximum security jails, and his associates are linked to up to 70 Middle Eastern gangsters living in Melbourne's north-western suburbs.

As his earliest release date was before July 1 this year, Keshtiar's bid for parole is being considered under the previous parole system, which is considered significantly more lenient.

The system was overhauled in response to the 2012 killing of Jill Meagher by parolee Adrian Bayley, but applies only to prisoners with an earliest release date after July 1.

Under the previous system, Keshtiar is automatically considered for parole, rather than having to apply to the Adult Parole Board.

But the board has not ruled on his case, almost six months after he became eligible.

It is believed authorities are concerned about his recruitment to the Mongols and his criminal associations, and not his behaviour in prison. As with all prospective parolees, he will be subject to a risk assessment regarding the likelihood of him reoffending.

"The board has not presently determined the question of Mr Keshtiar's parole," an APB spokeswoman said.

Keshtiar was expected to recruit so many Mongols that he could triple the size of the gang, and police believed his impending prison release, and that of his right-hand man George Marrogi, could result in an explosion of violent crime as the pair flexed their muscle.

But Marrogi, 26, who had been serving a sentence for manslaughter and serious assault charges, was thrown back in prison in May – less than four weeks after being released on parole – when he allegedly started debt collecting for jailed drug kingpin Mohammed Oueida, a senior member of the Comanchero bikie gang.

Should Keshtiar be made to serve his full sentence, there are concerns he would be released without the sort of monitoring that resulted in Marrogi being caught.

Keshtiar's vast power in the prison system was reflected when a man was sentenced in June for plotting the murder of a relative of Keshtiar in a non-bikie-related incident.

The judge who sentenced him said prison would be "more difficult" – as the man would be forced to spend part of his sentence in protective custody – and that he had considered this when balancing his sentence.

Keshtiar's brother posted a poem on Facebook on June 30 "dedicated to my brother Akbar (Afghan Ali)".

"It hurts me to see what your going through, it hurts even more because there's nothing I can do," it read in part.

"I just wish I could make it all ok, but all I can do is pray."

Keshtiar became familiar with guns when he was in Afghanistan, which he left with his family as a 19-year-old.

He had worked in the security industry before being jailed for the separate shooting incidents, and a charge of possessing steroids.

Two sentencing judges found it difficult to determine why Keshtiar had gone "berserk" in the moments before either shooting, but considered it linked to his consumption of steroids, ecstasy and other drugs.

Keshtiar, a friend said, had never owned and wouldn't know how to ride a motorbike, and could therefore become part of the modern bikie clique who cannot tell a Harley from a Honda.

The friend said Keshtiar had significant mental health issues that were exacerbated by years of drug abuse.

"He comes across as the nicest, most polite person you will come across," the friend said.

"I've no doubt he would come across as a model prisoner.

"But what goes through his head is totally different. He is completely ruthless."
