The brother of slain gangland kingpin Walid 'Wally' Ahmad has been charged with murder after he was dramatically arrested at Sydney airport.

Mahmoud 'Brownie' Ahmad, 34, was picked up by New South Wales Police homicide squad detectives on Monday night after arriving from an international flight. 

He was taken to Botany Bay police station and charged over the murder of Safwan Charbaji, 32, who was fatally wounded outside a smash repair business last year.  

It is the first time he has been back in Australia after fleeing to Lebanon just days after the brazen gangland gunfight outside the panel beater in south west Sydney.

Charbaji's death was later linked to the murder of convicted killer Walid Ahmad, 40, who was killed in a spray of bullets on the rooftop car park of Bankstown Central shopping centre weeks later. 

Facing a media pack after touching down in Sydney from Qatar, Ahmad covered his face with handcuffed hands and a black Adidas hoodie pulled over his head.

But Ahmad has denied involvement in Charbaji's murder, previously telling Fairfax Media while in Lebanon that he had 'nothing to clear up' with authorities. 

'Tell the cops to get their facts right first ... I'm not running or hiding so f*** off. They can talk s*** as much as they want,' he told the publication. 

Ahmad was was taken to Mascot police station and is expected to be charged with an outstanding warrant for murder. He will appear in Waverley Local Court on Tuesday.
