Former NSW bikie Sam Ibrahim has landed back in Sydney after being released from immigration detention in Perth over the weekend. Ibrahim, the brother of former Kings Cross nightclub boss John, landed in Sydney on Tuesday night and was greeted by a throng of relatives and supporters. Staying silent as he walked through Sydney Airport, Ibrahim was met by long-time family bodyguard Semi Ngata, lawyer William Levingston and nephew Harley. Harley put his arm around his uncle’s shoulders and escorted the group, saying: “Let’s go, let’s go.” The pair hopped in the back of a waiting black van. It is understood Ibrahim was expected to head to his family home in Merrylands to celebrate his release. Earlier at Perth Airport as he waited for his flight, Ibrahim stayed quiet as he was approached by 7NEWS before boarding a Jetstar flight. Following a nine-year jail sentence for gun dealing, Ibrahim spent three years in immigration limbo as the Federal Government attempted to deport the former Kings Cross enforcer to Lebanon. The Government claimed he had never been made an Australian citizen, despite having lived here since the 1970s. Ibrahim was freed after the High Court’s ruling against indefinite detention led to the release of more than 140 detainees. After his release on Saturday, Ibrahim told The Daily Telegraph he was “finally free”. “There are no officers around me. Thank God it’s over — this nightmare is finished,” he said. “They’ve got an ankle bracelet on me that might come off. “I don’t care. I’ll do whatever they want.” Ibrahim said he had been staying in a Perth hotel since his release on Saturday.
