As our colleagues and clients know de Vries Tayeh focus highly on charity based events and help and assist where we can. Watch over the next four 4 weeks while our “Suspects at Large” storey unfolds and see the changes in these suspected criminals.

The Movember event started in 2004 and raises awareness around men's health issues and funds for carefully selected beneficiary partners that are also charitable organisations, with a focus on prostate cancer and depression in men. Have a look at their website: for further details.

Remember, all donations over $2 are tax deductible. The money raised by Movember is used to raise awareness of men's health issues and donated to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and beyondblue - the national depression initiative. The PCFA and beyondblue will use the funds to fund research and increase support networks for those men who suffer from prostate cancer and depression.

Did you know:
Depression affects 1 in 6 men....most don't seek help. Untreated depression is a leading risk factor for suicide.
Last year in Australia 18,700 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer and more than 2,900 died of prostate cancer - equivalent to the number of women who will die from breast cancer annually.

As always we thank you for your support and ask you to join us for a bit of fun over the next 4 weeks on an intriguing adventure.

Suspects at Large

Movember launch turns Nasty

Last Friday night police were in attendance to disburse an unruly mob that had formed on the corner of Church Street Maul and Macquarie Street, Parramatta.
Mrs. Auld N. Scared (84) said as she stood shaking “it all came out of nowhere”.

Four (4) prominent Parramatta liquidators were detained by Police to assist with their enquiries. The four were Antony de Vries, Glenn Ashcroft, Ridda Abdelmalik and Yongjie Qi.
“I saw these four (4) men in the thick of things each being held to the ground by 2 – 3 policemen, the worst I’ve ever seen” said James Nosie.

“It’s all about the Charity was all I could hear the four (4) men yell as they were rough handled into the police van” said Mr. Nosie.
The police are searching for a further 2 men who fled the scene.

One is described as being in his late 30’s, medium build, 180cm and of Italian appearance. The other more dangerous is early 40’s,
medium to solid build, 175 cm tall with an “angry but kind” Arabic complexion. Both men are considered highly intelligent and dangerous.

You should not approach them but call Crimestoppers or your local police immediately. Sgt Lokumup appealed “we would like to hear from any member of the public who were in Church Street Maul last Friday night. We need to get to the bottom of this quickly”.
Fugitives Found
Movember Gang Refused Bail

Two of the infamous Movember Gang were arrested by Police last Saturday. These two had been at large since last week’s disturbance in Parramatta where Police were called to contain an unruly mob. The two were Riad Tayeh (45), Anthony Bagala (37). Tayeh was apprehended whilst speeding in a limousine along the M4. Bagala was found after Police were called to another disturbance at a mechanical workshop where Bagala was having a heated argument with the owner of Mal’s Mechancial. “He was blaming me for wrecking his car” stated a frantically scared Mal.

These two fugitives joined the rest of the gang at a bail hearing in Parramatta Criminal Court.

The men responsible for last week’s disturbance in Parramatta have been dubbed the “Movember Gang”.

It remains unclear as to who they represent and what if any damage was caused. Their lawyer Ms. Elle de Fendu reaffirmed her view that they are all wrongly accused and innocent.

Judge Dontkare refused bail for the 5 on the grounds that they disrespected the court by the way they behaved and looked. He said “you couldn’t even be bothered to have a shave”.

“After 6 days in remand, with no access to facilities, I would look a bit worse for wear, Judge Dontkare is being irrational” appealed the gang’s young ditsy lawyer, Elle de Fendu from de Fendu Knot & Associates.

One of the Movember Gang was granted weekend access for family reasons but failed to appear at the bail hearing. Police have issued a warrant for the arrest of Glen Ashcroft. Sources close to this reporter were informed that Ashcroft missed the hearing because his car failed to start due to a flat battery. Ashcroft remains at large.

The crimes committed by the Movember Gang have inspired others tofollow. Another man was seen being chased by Police along York Street, Sydney last Monday. “He was short, stocky but very nimble on foot as he darted amongst the lunch time shoppers” said an impressed office worker who did not want to be named. “No way, could the cops catch him……I don’t know where he was from but people yelled out the name ‘Tony’ as he fled” stated the anonymous office worker.
