A notorious crime boss who was once Australia's most wanted man has been stabbed in prison, reports said Monday, months after revelations his lawyer was a police informant cast doubt on his criminal convictions.

He was later arrested while on the run in Greece and extradited to Australia.

Monday's attack came several years after one of Mokbel's associates, mobster Carl Williams, was killed in the same prison.

It followed the release in December of previously suppressed court documents that revealed one of the biggest legal scandals to hit Australia in years.

The documents disclosed that a high-profile Melbourne barrister had for years been giving information to Victoria Police, while representing Mokbel and six of his associates.
