The federal government will move to deport underworld figure Sam Ibrahim to Lebanon as soon as possible after he is released from prison in the next week.
Ibrahim, the brother of Kings Cross identity John Ibrahim who was not involved in the offending, has been in prison since 2014 for conspiracy to supply guns. He was granted parole on Tuesday morning but will be immediately transferred to immigration detention because his permanent residency visa was cancelled following his arrest.
