Mohammed Skaf left was just 17 when he joined his brother Bilal, then 18 in a gang of youths who raped and humiliated young Sydney women. Bilal Skaf right , now aged 33, is serving a 31 year sentence for gang rape and has been housed in both Goulburn's Supermax facility and the MPU, part of the Goulburn main prison. Jail made weapons, known as shivs, seized from cells in prisons including Goulburn Main, have been fashioned from brushes, pieces of metal or plastic and given tape of cloth handles for use in the prison yards to threaten, maim or kill.
The details of this vicious attack - which involved four rapists and violent sex offenders and three murderes with multiple victims - is the subject of an internal report obtained exclusively by Daily Mail Australia. Through the gate of the yard, he could see one of the notorious K brothers, year-old MSK, punching and wrestling with murderer, Shannon William Daley. MSK was the eldest of four brothers convicted of raping eight girls aged between 13 and 18 years old at Ashfield in inner western Sydney in , and who were sentenced to between 15 and 24 years prison, a fifth rapist in their gang having hanged himself in jail.
The brothers are immigrants from Pakistan's violent former north west frontier province and identify in the Goulburn prison files as Afghani. Execution style murderer Leith Marchant above , who converted to Islam under the influence of Bassam Hamzy in Goulburn jail, sleeps on bare concrete in his cell, and has hatched elaborate escape plans. Mark Van Krevel above, left who murdered two men, decapitating and disembowelling his first victim, has stacked on weight in prison, Vestor Fernando centre killed nurse Sandra Hoare and then his cousin in prison and serial killer Lindsay Rose right makes jail keys and plots to murder guards.

Buck radioed the control room and Immediate Action Team to come to the yard. He unlocked the gate and noticed another inmate lying on the ground. It was another K brother gang rapist, year-old MAK. First class correctional officer Stephen Barton moved into the yard and immediately ordered all the other 2 Yard inmates up against ancient brick adjoining wall to 1 Yard. From above the yard on the middle landing of prison block 2, Senior Correctional Officer Elizabeth Clune was searching cells for contraband.
Beauty queen Anita Cobby pictured was abducted after a night shift as a nurse and taken to a field in western Sydney where she was raped and almost decapitated by five men, including three brothers Michael, Gary and Leslie Murphy, who were sentenced to serve out their lives in Goulburn Main prison. Despite mercilessly slaying seven backpackers, from top left, Deborah Everist, Anya Habschied, Simone Schmidl, bottom, Joanne Walters, Gabor Neuegebauer, Caroline Clarke and James Gibson, serial killer Ivan Milat has carried on like a wimp in jail, threatening suicide when his sandwich maker was taken from him and lasting just two days on a hunger strike because he 'loves his tucker too much'.
In the late afternoon on the Circle, Australia's most infamous prison yard, tiny killer Stephen 'Shorty' Jamieson pictured after his arrest could be behind the gate of the caged yard which he shared with dozens of other notorious killers and rapists. The Murphy brothers, left to right, Leslie, Gary and Michael, who raped and murdered beauty queen Anita Cobby in and who are now grizzled old men in prison where they eke out time in the yards among other killers and rapists and will die in prison.
MSK 'appeared to be bleeding from both eyes, his right ear, the nose and mouth. He was conscious and semi-alert,' Ms Clune would later report. I could not see any other blunt objects in the immediate vicinity. I informed them that the left side of K's head felt very soft. When they rolled him over to the other side, a large indentation to the left side of the head was apparent.

Goulburn prison, which is a two hour drive south-west of Sydney, has the greatest concentration of Australia's worst criminals housed together in year-old cells. Prison senior assistant superintendent Dempsey had arrived in 2 Yard and taken control. He went to speak with inmate Shannon Daley, who told him he had started the fight when the K brothers pulled knives on him. As statements from other sin the yard would later attest, Daley yelled out that MSK had a knife and five other inmates rushed over to jump on MSK. Among them were Jay William Short, 31, serving 20 years for the brutal murder of Lithgow beauty queen Alison Marie Lewis, who he strangled, stabbed and buried in a sandpit at a local sports oval in Another was one of NSW's more notorious killers of , Matthew De Gruchy, who had murdered his mother and two younger siblings at the family's Albion Park Rail home, km south of Sydney.
De Gruchy is serving 28 years. Joining in the melee, in which both K brothers were punched, kicked and hit with objects, were armed robber Adrian Gray, multiple sex offender Robert John Hayes and Ghebli Djait, convicted of a drink spiking related sexual assault. Also involved was another man serving a 34 year minimum for the suffocation murders of three young children in Cabramatta in western Sydney five years earlier.
CCTV footage showed MSK being dragged across the yard and two of the inmates assaulting him, after which he was treated for a broken arm. His brother, MAK, was taken by ambulance off to Goulburn hospital for brain surgery. The incident, which happened on February 8, , made national headlines but is by no means the worst to happen on the Circle. Divided into the caged wedges, the Circle is now a model of racial and prison 'social order' separation. This is because in three short years in the s, Goulburn was a bloodbath.
Between and , seven inmate murders in Goulburn Main put the prison way in front of infamous Long Bay Jail, where despite numerous stabbings, only five inmates were murdered between and Several of the Goulburn Main murders resulted from conflict between Aboriginal inmates and those of Middle Eastern background, prison authorities devised a system of segregation by race to keep violent attacks to a minimum. The yards on the Circle which, like the spokes of a wheel ring the central tower of the prison, now comprise a Lebanese yard, a Koori yard, a yard of the most despicable murderers, an Islander yard and a yard of Asian inmates who mix with a variety of other ethnic origins.
Visitors to prisons like Goulburn have concealed knives, weapons, bullets and drug implements in their cars and on their person, only to be arrested and charged by officers who know how dangerous it would be if any of the weapons reached the yards which have a history of murder and stabbings. Thrown into Goulburn's Supermax because of prison behaviour were killer Guy Staines left who converted to Islam in jail, and Craig Richardson right.
Continual upending of cells and searches for contraband unearth drug implements, weapons, mobile phones and SIM cards and other items which inmates in prisons like Australia's toughest jail, Goulburn Main, can mean life or death in the yard for other inmates or for the prison officers. Gang rapist, Bilal Skaf, pictured in the visitors' room at Goulburn Supermax prison sits with his father Mustapha and mother, Baria, who is filmed in the act of secreting in her sock cartoons and letters which Skaf tried to smuggle from the prison to the outside, an act which saw Baria banned from visiting him.
Around 30 inmates fill each yard and on hot days by the late afternoon before the 3.
The Murphy brothers look like grizzled old men now. At a tiny cm high, Shorty Jamieson is visible at the front of his yard behind the wire gate. Another prominent figure in one of the yards on The Circle was Thomas Hudson Wilson, a onetime jail accomplice of serial killer Ivan Milat, who was identifiable by his tall completely hairless body and bright green eyes.
Convicted murderer Ronald Priestley stirred up trouble in Goulburn prison becoming involved in serious prison riots and assault on officers. Wilson was deported back to New Zealand in after serving 1 14 year sentence for breaking a woman's face, arm and legs with a pinch bar in an attack he was said to have been paid to do by the woman's former boyfriend.

Van Krevel was just 21 years old when he smashed the head of O'Hearn in his home with a wine decanter, then decapitated him and placed the head in the kitchen sink.
Then he partially disembowelled O'Hearn, cut off his hand and used the hand to draw satanic pictures on the living room walls. Next, he smashed in the head of former Wollongong mayor, Arkell, with a bedside lamp, wrapped the electric cord around his neck and stuck tie pins in his eyes. In Supermax, Van Krevel stacked on weight, turning him from a relatively small man into an obese prisoner.
He has also spent long periods of time away from Supermax under psychiatric care.
