Notorious Hitman Abuzar Sultani Pleads Guilty to Fifth Murder, Cementing his Place in Australian Criminal History

Abuzar Sultani, the enigmatic figure known as “Abs” or “Boss” within the criminal underworld, has confessed to his fifth murder, solidifying his position as one of Australia’s most prolific killers. The 35-year-old former Burwood Rebels leader-turned-independent gangster and hitman pleaded guilty in the New South Wales Supreme Court to the murder of former biker gang member Mark Easter, a case that had remained unsolved for over eight years.

Easter’s disappearance in 2015 had baffled investigators until council workers stumbled upon his lifeless body dumped in the bushland of Sydney’s northern suburbs. The grim discovery revealed that Easter had been ruthlessly executed, shot four times in the back of the head with a .22 caliber pistol. Witnesses had last seen him entering a white van outside his Little Bay residence three days prior to his disappearance.

Sultani, who was set to face trial for Easter’s murder, surprised the court by entering a guilty plea. This marks the fifth time he has admitted to a murder charge, having previously confessed to the killings of four other men between 2013 and 2016. The media had been largely barred from reporting on the extensive court hearings surrounding Sultani’s crimes, adding an air of mystery to his already notorious reputation.

Already serving three consecutive life sentences without parole for the slayings of Michael Davey, Mehmet Yilmaz, and Pasquale Barbaro, Sultani’s killing spree was described by a Supreme Court judge as mindless and driven by a desire to enhance his crew’s reputation or personal vendettas. The court also sentenced him to an additional 20 years for the brutal murder of low-level drug dealer Nikola Srbin and 28 years for various charges, including gun possession, drug supply, and leading a criminal network.

Raised in a working-class family in Sydney’s west, Sultani’s transformation from a seemingly intelligent and promising individual to a feared hitman has left many perplexed. He revealed to a forensic psychologist that his association with serious criminals began during a stint in jail for armed robbery as a teenager. Subsequently, his involvement in the construction industry provided him with the perfect cover for his criminal activities.

Prior to his arrest, Sultani was pursuing a master’s degree in business at Macquarie University and held directorial positions in labor hire companies. Unbeknownst to the public, his criminal gang maintained safe houses across the city, stocked with weapons, ballistic vests, ammunition, drugs, and stolen cars, facilitating their nefarious operations.

Sultani’s double life came crashing down in 2016 when law enforcement authorities dismantled his gang. Months of surveillance, including hidden cameras and bugs in their vehicles, culminated in the arrest of the hitman. Justice Peter Hammill, who presided over Sultani’s trial for Srbin’s murder, noted that the criminal was excelling academically, receiving distinctions in his master’s degree at the time of his arrest at the age of 27. The judge lamented the tragic waste of a once-promising life.

As Sultani awaits sentencing for the murder of Mark Easter, he reflects on the ruthlessness and cold-heartedness that defined his criminal career. Despite his heinous crimes, he hopes to be transferred to a less secure prison facility to participate in educational programs, as he faces the remainder of his days behind bars.
