A victim of a series of sickening rapes which caused national outrage in Australia says she is fearful about the imminent release of yet another member of the gang which terrorised girls just before the Sydney Olympics.
The State Parole Board of NSW has announced it will release ‘H’, an unidentifed member of the notorious Skaf rape gang whose degrading and racist sex crimes still shock the nation almost 14 years on.
The victim was a 16-year-old when she was raped by the gang leader, Bilal Skaf, in front of 12 men in a public park and had a gun held to her head by a second man who also raped her, before kicking her in the stomach.
The release of ‘H’ will mean two-thirds of the the original gang, which comprised young men of Lebanese background and included two sets of brothers, has now been freed from prison.
The victim’s mother told MailOnline the release frightened her daughter, and the fact half the gang were ‘out and roaming around’ was a major concern.
‘H’ was one of 14 mostly Muslim Lebanese Australians who went on a four-week rampage orchestrated by gang leader Bilal Skaf, raping Australian women and teenage girls in Sydney in the lead up to the 2000 Olympics.
The gang members, aged between 13 and 18 years, lured the girls from shopping centres and train stations and took them to parks and public toilet blocks.
One of the victims was raped 25 times by a total of 14 men at Bankstown, in Sydney’s west, in an ordeal that lasted six hours, during which the attackers subjected her to racist taunts.
They called her an ‘Aussie Pig’, told her she would be raped ‘Leb-style’ and asked if ‘Leb c*** tastes better than Aussie c***’.
Afterwards, the rapists cleaned her down with a fire hose.
Two 16-year-old girls were raped repeatedly over five hours and told ‘you deserve it because you’re Australian’.

When police caught the gang, the available evidence allowed only nine members go to trial.
During court hearings, the men’s family members abused legal and court officials.
Family members spat at the media and others, and one female relative called the Crown Prosecutor, Margaret Cunneen, SC, a ‘sharmoota’, which means ‘whore’ in Arabic.
In sentencing, Judge Michael Finnane described the rapes as events ‘you hear about or read about only in the context of wartime atrocities’.
When gang leader, Bilal Skaf, aged 18 at the time of his rapes, received a maximum 55 year sentence, there was outcry among the Lebanese Australian community.
Skaf appealed and his sentence was reduced. Appeals have also reduced the compulsory jail time of the other gang members.
