Bizarre turn in the execution of Mick Hawi as mover convicted of ‘throwing away the getaway car’ used by the killer – while the friend he agreed to carried out the attack is NOT guilty
- Ahmad Doudar, 40, was an accomplice in the murder of Mick Hawi afterwards
- Hawi was shot outside a gym in Sydney on February 15, 2018
- But a friend who, according to Doudar, murdered Hawi has been found not guilty
- Doudar, a one-time furniture mover, may be eligible for parole next year
A furniture mover has been jailed for four and a half years for moving a getaway car used in the execution of former biker king Mick Hawi.
But in a whim of fate, the friend who accepted Ahmad Doudar, 40, Hawi shot dead as part of his guilty plea – Yusuf Nazlioglu – has been found not guilty of murder.
Father-of-one Doudar was convicted on Thursday after admitting to being an accomplice to Hawi’s murder.
Hawi was climbing in his Mercedes AMG 4WD outside Fitness First Rockdale on February 15, 2018, when he was shot several times in the head and trunk.
Former Comanchero Mahmoud ‘Mick’ Hawi was gunned down in broad daylight outside a gym in south Sydney on February 15, 2018.

This is when a man with his face covered in a balaclava shot and killed Hawi in a brutal daylight attack outside Fitness First Rockdale over two years ago.
The cheeky executioners, faces darkened by balaclavas, escaped while Hawi died of a brain injury in the hospital.
Doudar’s role in the crime involved picking up a hidden silver Aurion with a tow truck and planning to throw it away with others, the court heard.
Judge Robert Allan Hulme said of the sentencing today, ‘(Mr Doudar) planned to assist in clearing the vehicle to assist’ in the murder.
A week ago, accused gunman Nazlioglu, 39, and alleged flight pilot Jamal El-Jaidi, 32, were both found not guilty of murder after a week of deliberations by a jury.
Doudar was not called to testify at their trial.
In delivering his verdict today, Judge Robert Allan Hulme said that Doudar’s admission of guilt and the facts he agreed to indicated that he knew “the brutal and impertinent executioner.”
The murder itself was terrible. It was a dangerous and violent public execution. Mr. Doudar knew this. ‘
Hawi’s wife Carolina Gonzalez gave a ‘very moving account’ of the grief she and her family suffered during Doudar’s conviction

The judge said murders like these “don’t happen by chance … they require the involvement of several people.”
Doudar’s motif remains unknown. “As far as I know, Mr. Doudar may have been motivated by one or more other purposes,” the judge said.
Hawi’s wife, Carolina Gonzalez, sister Zeinab, and parents Ahmad and Nahdi read statements during his sentencing.
They gave “very moving accounts of the loss and grief that has resulted from the taking of their loved one in the most dire circumstances.”
Doudar was sentenced to three years and four months in prison. With the time set up, he will be eligible for parole by the end of 2021.
