A man has been charged with the murder of former Commanchero bikie chief Mahmoud “Mick” Hawi, who was gunned down in Sydney.
Jamal El Jaidi was arrested in February and charged with possessing a prohibited pistol, and has been held in custody since then.
Detectives have now charged El Jaidi with murder as the 31-year-old appeared at Burwood Local Court on Thursday.
Mr Hawi was shot as he got into his car outside a gym in Rockdale in Sydney’s south in February 2018.
Detectives later discovered a firearm in a garage allegedly used to store one of the getaway cars.
El Jaidi was refused bail and ordered to reappear on May 8.
