    Australia - Drug thief 'had genitals set alight'

    Drug thief 'had genitals set alight'
    By Elissa Hunt



    A DRUG thief was kidnapped, tied to a chair and tortured before being shot dead and set alight by rival dealers, a court has heard.

    A Supreme Court jury was told his abductors set Michael Daou’s genitals on fire before shooting him twice in the head in November 2006, the Herald Sun reports.

    The ringleaders then plotted to murder the girl they had used to lure Mr Daou to his death, prosecutor Gavin Silbert, SC, said.

    Garry Hargrave, 52, his sons Adam, 28, and Aaron, 26, brothers Ngoc Bui, 23, and Quoc Bui, 25, and Kevin Ng, 23, have pleaded not guilty to murder, kidnapping and false imprisonment.

    Garry Hargrave and Adam Hargrave have also denied a charge of conspiring to murder the female decoy who enticed Mr Daou to the park he was kidnapped from.

    Mr Silbert told the jury in his opening address an informer who had helped in the murder had pleaded guilty and would be a witness against the six accused.

    He said Garry Hargrave used his legitimate business, Logistics Plus, in Scoresby as a front for his family’s drug enterprise.

    Both his sons, the Bui brothers, Mr Ng and the informer all worked for the drug business, the jury was told.

    When one of their runners was robbed at gunpoint of 2000 ecstasy pills worth $20,000 they decided to punish Mr Daou, who was selling the missing drugs.

    Mr Silbert said the informer would give evidence that all six accused took part in planning Mr Daou’s kidnap and all bar Garry Hargrave were present when he was tortured and killed.

    He was assaulted, tied to a chair and had his pubic hair and genitals sprayed with an aerosol can, which were then ignited.

    Tony Lewis, for Adam Hargrave, said the informer was the real killer, not his client.

    His credibility as the central witness – given his own involvement in the crime – was a key issue in the case.

    The trial before Justice Betty King is continuing.

    Should have just burned his balls off ... shooting him in the head took it a bit far.

    If it's $ 10 oz it's pennies. Was 10 pounds sterling back in the mid 80's but they were the business and solved England's hooligan problem in my view.

    Yup, E's in Aussie for far more than most other places in the world - had mates importing them, crushing and cutting them 2 to 1, put into a pill press and were then selling them for $50 a pop around the King's X clubs. That was in 2001.

    A few got done (most didn't and made some nice money) 2 went down for importing - minimum 4 years, most of it in cushy John Moroney prison in Windsor - a holiday camp.

    If someones looking for a good 'money:time if caught' ratio, importing amphetamines to Aussie (or NSW anyway) is as about as good as you'd get.

    at those prices one would think the market would be flooded and the price would plummet.
