    Three men sentenced over a series of gang rapes were named by a NSW court.

    District Court Judge Michael Finnane lifted a suppression order allowing two brothers and a third man to be named.

    Mahmoud Sanoussi, 17, and Mohammed Sanoussi, 18, were sentenced today to 11 and 21 years respectively.

    Judge Finnane also sentenced a third man, Tayyab Sheikh, 18, to 15 years' jail with a minimum nine years over the rape of a young girl who was attacked by 14 men.

    The judge ordered Sheikh be held in a juvenile justice facility until his 21st birthday.

    Sheikh was sentenced to 15 years' jail for aggravated sexual intercourse and five years for the detention of the victim, codenamed Miss C.

    The sentences are to be served concurrently.

    The judge also reduced the non-parole period from 11 years and three months to nine years because of Sheikh's age.

    Sheikh kept his head lowered when the sentence was delivered.

    Judge Finnane said he decided to lift restrictions on naming Sheikh and the Sanoussi brothers because the gang rape was "one of the greatest outrages perpetrated on the community in Sydney" and one organised "militarily".

    He said the trial had been conducted publicly and there was great merit in there being public denunciation of serious offences.
