By Neil Doorley and Connor O’Brien,The Courier Mail – “TWO men will be charged with preparing to send fighters to join the conflict in Syria, after a year-long counter-terrorism investigation.
AFP National Manager Counter Terrorism Assistant Commissioner Neil Gaughan confirmed Omar Succarieh was one of the men arrested today.
He said a 31-year-old from Kuraby would be charged with providing funds to terrorist organisation Jabhat al-Nusra in Syria.
Assistant Commissioner Gaughan said the man was also charged in relation to preparations for incursions into Syria with the intentions of engaging in hostile activities.
He said a 21-year-old from Baronia Heights would also be charged with two offences under the Crimes Incursions Act.
He said one charge was in relation to preparations for incursions into Syria with the intentions of engaging in hostile activities while the other was related to recruiting persons to engage in hostile activities in Syria.
Police will allege the men helped a ‘small number’ of individuals.
Assistant Commissioner Gaughan said there was no information or intelligence available to police to indicate the men were involved in planning any terrorism attacks in Australia.
‘This has got nothing to do with Islam, this is criminal behaviour by Australians involved in terrorist activity,’ he said.
He said the arrests followed a 12-month investigation.” Read more.
