Alen Moradian Wiki – Alen Moradian Biography
Alen Moradian, a cocaine kingpin was killed just days after launching a gemstone business – and security had been beefed up at his wife’s Natasha Moradian bush property just last week.
Alen Moradian – once described as Australia’s answer to fictional mafia boss Tony Soprano – was shot dead in his car in an underground car park in Bondi Junction, in Sydney’s east, about 8.30 am on Tuesday. Police said Moradian, who is linked to the Comanchero bikie gang and is said to have had a key role in the city’s cocaine network, had a ‘big target on his back’ and was targeted by up to two hitmen, one of whom managed to set a getaway car on fire. He was killed on his estranged wife Natasha’s 51st birthday. Documents obtained by Daily Mail Australia revealed Moradian last Friday set up a new company, Brilliant Gems Australia Pty Ltd, with the convicted drug dealer listing himself as the director, secretary and sole shareholder of the business.
The principal place of residence was listed as his wife’s $2.35million property in Kurrajong, at the base of the NSW Blue Mountains. Neighbours reported seeing Mrs Moradian leaving her home in a black sedan about 90 minutes after her husband was gunned down. Mrs Moradian appears to have been friends with the late Lametta Fadlallah – who was murdered last August alongside her friend Amy Hazouri in the back of a car after a $500,000 bounty was placed on her head. Meanwhile, neighbours revealed a large black fence was erected around the Kurrajong property in the past few days. The black fence only went up a week or so ago,’ said a neighbour, who wished to remain anonymous. The construction was taking place for three weeks. Lots of people were there digging. The silver [electric] fence was finished just before that – about a month ago. Before, it was only a small old wooden fence that you could step over. ‘We always see white vans going to and from the property, but we’ve never seen who lives there.’Staff at Mrs Moradian’s organic store at Richmond confirmed she had a rostered day off.
The Sydney crime figure, 48, who has yet to be formally identified by police, was shot dead in a brazen daylight ambush next door to Bondi Junction’s Holiday Inn hotel on Spring Street just before 8.30am on Tuesday. Moradian, who once had the ceiling of his suburban home painted like the Sistine Chapel, is understood to have been a member of the Commission, an underworld network linked to the Comanchero gang which controls the city’s drug trade. A police source at the scene confirmed the man had died. A burnt-out car was found shortly after the shooting on Cook Lane in Zetland. Forensic officers were also seen examining a luxury Porsche on James Street, about a kilometre away from where the shots were fired.

Homicide squad commander Danny Doherty said the man has not been formally identified but is a 48-year-old Bondi Junction resident. He was well-known to police. He’s a high-level major player,’ Detective Superintendent Doherty said.’Because he’s a major player in the organised crime network and also has links to the Comancheros, high level, he had a big target on his back.’ He said police are looking for two shooters and that emergency crews attempted CPR on the man but he could not be revived.

Among the assets seized were luxury cars, boats, jet skis, motorbikes, and 17 guns, including a gold-plated Magnum .357 pistol. In an email tendered to the court, Youkhana, who hails from Kuwait, warned her husband to be careful. Why do you just sit there and show off – “I am the man, I am the man”?’ the email read.’Do you see Tony Soprano doing that? ‘He doesn’t care who people think is the boss, [money] is his number one priority. You, on the other hand, want the attention, you get a big head, and you love it. ‘People like that won’t survive.’
A court later heard Moradian dropped $ 1 million in cash on Versace furniture and homewares. He and his wife had been turning their West Pennant Hills McMansion into an Italian-style palazzo, complete with Renaissance-inspired garden statues and a Sistine Chapel-style mural on the ceiling of their lounge room.
