NSW police have restricted the movements of 22 underworld figures in a desperate attempt to prevent a bloody gangland war following the fatal shooting of Maid Hamzy in southwest Sydney last week.
Mejid Hamzy, 44, the brother of notorious criminal and Brothers For Life founder Bassam Hamzy, was shot outside his home in Condell Park on October 19.
State Crime Command’s Criminal Groups Squad formed Strike Force Courier to investigate Mejid’s death – which was followed by a stabbing in prison between two Brothers For Life members at John Morony Correctional Center in Windsor with Mohammed Hamzy, – a cousin of Mejid and Bassam Hamzy who was stabbed.
Police have issued 22 men associated with the Hamzy and Alameddine families public safety warrants in a desperate effort to prevent more retaliatory attacks.

Detective Superintendent Robert Critchlow said the public safety orders enforce and limit the 22 men who they can interact with for 72 hours.
It also means that the police can search their cars and houses whenever they want.
Well, the time to mess around is over. People are dying in the streets and it has to stop, ” Det Supt Critchlow told the radio station 2 GB on Tuesday.
“We are tired of this behavior … and we will not tolerate persistent behavior that endangers the entire community.”
‘We’re not stopping. We use every legislative power we have to prevent further crime and stop these people. ‘
The police have vowed to use all legislative means and powers available to them
“The next step is likely to enforce serious crime bans that impose massive restrictions on the way of life of those who served them,” Chief Inspector Critchlow said in a statement.
Anyone involved in these shootings or other violent activities should expect to be arrested. Shooting in houses, businesses or cars is reckless and dangerous and will not be tolerated by the police.
‘We will not stop our pursuit of these reckless and careless individuals who continue to endanger the community, and if you are involved wherever you are, whatever you do, it is best to assume that we already have monitor your movements. ‘

Detectives and Mejid’s family fear retaliation for the murder by the murdered gangster’s employees.
