One of Sydney's notorious Skaf gang rapists has been released after 13 years behind bars.
Mohamed Sanoussi covered his head with a green jumper as he walked from Silverwater Correctional Complex on Thursday, having served 13 years of a 16-year sentence for his role in a string of group sex attacks in Sydney in 2000.
Wearing a green t-shirt and shorts, Sanoussi did not answer questions from waiting media as he got into a grey car that carried him from the jail complex.
Sanoussi, who had his parole refused three times since 2010, was expected to be taken to a halfway house.
The NSW State Parole Authority had allowed Sanoussi's release on September 5 but the freedom was revoked the next day due to concerns he would associate with the Brothers for Life Gang.
Sanoussi's biological brothers are known members of the gang.
On September 19, the parole board ordered Sanoussi's parole again on the basis he live in a halfway house until he finds independent accommodation or his brothers move out of the family home.
Sanoussi was one of 14 men involved in a string of gang rapes in isolated locations around Sydney.
The attacks were led by brothers Bilal and Mohammed Skaf.
Bilal Skaf is serving a 36-year prison term, while Mohammed Skaf is serving a 23-year prison term.
Another gang member, who can be identified only as "Offender H" will have a parole hearing next year.
Sanoussi must comply with 30 strict conditions while he's on parole, including not contacting his brothers without approval.
He must also not contact his co-offenders, victims or a child under 16 without supervision.He is also banned from visiting Kings Cross and one particular gym in Bankstown.
