Breakthrough in Bondi Junction assassination of Australia’s cocaine king as cops charge fifth man, 22, with murder over hi-tech plot

A fifth man has been charged over the murder of drug lord Alen Moradian in an underground car park at Bondi Junction in Sydney‘s eastern suburbs. 

Moradian, a major cocaine supplier known in the underworld as ‘Fathead’, had been in hiding for 10 months when he was shot dead on June 27.

The 48-year-old was in a black Audi RS4 when he was ambushed by two men, one of whom fired up to seven bullets into his head and body. 

Police arrested a 22-year-old man at Canley Vale in the city’s west about 5.50am on Monday and charged him with murder.

It will be alleged he was responsible for sourcing a tracking device and phones used to coordinate the shooting. 

The man has also been charged with failing to comply with a digital evidence access order.

‘He was working at the direction of those who have overall command of the murder,’ Acting Superintendent Virginia Gorman said. ‘He’s a cog in the wheel.

‘Each person in these organised crime murders plays an essential role to achieve the outcome so they end up charged with murder as well.’

Four other men have been charged in relation to Moradian’s murder but none has been accused of pulling the trigger.

Investigators have also now released CCTV footage which shows two men driving into the Spring Street car park in a Porsche SUV shortly before the shooting. 

One of the men can be seen getting out of the vehicle wearing a hoodie and holding a handgun. That man disappears for several seconds before returning to the Porsche which then eaves the car park.

Other footage shows the pair swap the Porsche for a red Holden Cruze parked on nearby James Street.

The Porsche was found burnt out where it was abandoned and the Holden was later torched in Zetland. 

Detectives are appealing for anyone with information about the shooting or the identities of the men in the CCTV to contact them.

Task Force Magnus detectives arrested two men over Moradian’s murder in October.

Majok Angelo Deng, 27 and Chom Manut Guam Chom, 28, are accused of being involved in sourcing cars used in the killing. 

Two other men were charged in September over their alleged part in Moradian’s death but cannot be identified due to a court order. 

Police allege a 42-year-old man was the ‘mastermind’ behind the shooting, which they believed was motivated by an outstanding drug debt.

A 31-year-old man has been accused of helping co-ordinate the brazen daylight shooting.

Detective Chief Superintendent Jason Weinstein previously said police were still searching for the actual gunman.

‘The allegations are that the 42-year-old-male and the 31-year-old male themselves did not carry out the act,’ he said.

‘They gave the imprimatur, they gave the go ahead or the instructions for it to occur.’

Task Force Magnus was established in July to target and disrupt gun-related and violent crime and to investigate links between recent organised criminal activity in Sydney including the shooting of Moradian.
