Skaf: ‘brand name’ for gang rapist
Convicted rapist Bilal Skaf claims his name is so synonymous with a Sydney gang sex crime he will never be able to get a fair trial.
And the 26-year-old is asking the NSW Court of Criminal Appeal to reduce his sentence, saying his victim – who was held at gunpoint and raped by up to 14 men – suffered no significant harm.
Skaf brought his case before the criminal appeals court for the third time today, asking for his latest conviction to again be quashed or his sentence cut.
He shot to notoriety after receiving a record 55-year sentence following three back-to-back gang rape trials.
Skaf again made headlines when the Court of Criminal Appeal quashed his conviction for an August 2000 pack rape at Gosling Park, in Sydney’s west.
The court ordered a retrial after it was discovered two jurors in the case travelled to the park in suburban Greenacre to conduct their own investigations.
The revelation prompted a state-wide crackdown on jurors, including tougher penalties for breaches of the Jury Act.
New laws were also passed allowing for the use of transcripts of victims’ evidence at any retrial instead of requiring them to testify again in person.
Skaf’s barrister Andrew Haesler SC said “unremitting” publicity had etched Skaf into the public imagination, making it impossible to find an impartial jury.
While I respect the law and always hope for an impartial jury, the audacity of this pig to say the girl he violated was not significantly harmed makes me wish more states had the death penalty. Especially for trash like this.
