Noorudien Hassan‚ with whom Mihalik worked on a number of gang-related matters‚ was gunned down outside his Lansdowne home in November 2016.
The man Mihalk referred to as “my little brother” was involved in several high-profile cases‚ and represented murder accused David Forbes as well as suspected drug peddler Irshaad Laher.
Mihalik’s father‚ Janos‚ said: “Pete represented many a gangster. I think it [the shooting] has something to do with that.”
