Solicitor Charged Over Murder Of 15-Year-Old Brayden Dillon
A solicitor has been charged in relation to the murder of 15-year-old Brayden Dillon in Sydney's south-west.
Ali Abbas was arrested at Surry Hills police station just after 6am this morning, and charged with being accessory after the fact to murder, knowingly participate in a criminal group and perverting the course of justice.
Investigators initially tried to speak with Mr Abbas at his Monterey home yesterday afternoon, but say the 38 year old drove away from the property.
Police raided the home, as well as his Sydney CBD office and a storage unit at Bexley.
"During the searches, investigators seized electronic stun devices, more than $30,000 in cash, mobile phones, laptops and computers, documentation, and other items relevant to the investigation," NSW Police said in a statement.
Brayden Dillon was asleep in his mother's Glenfield home, in Sydney's south west on Good Friday last year, when an intruder burst into the house and shot him dead.
Police believe Brayden was killed after his older brother Joshua, allegedly stabbed Adam Abu-Mahmoud, 18, to death during a street fight a year earlier.
Six others have already been charged in connection to the crime.
It's alleged Abbas co-ordinated and facilitated of the provision of false affidavits on behalf of others and passed information relating to the murder between various people.
Police also claim the solicitor took a mobile phone into a jail to be used by an inmate.
Abbas has been refused bail to appear at Central Local Court today.
