Ahmed Elomar will be subject to an extended supervision order for two years.The brother of slain Islamic State terror fighter Mohamed Elomar will be subject to a strict anti-terror order limiting what he can do, where he can go and who he can talk to following his release from custody.
In a NSW Supreme Court judgment on Wednesday, Justice Geoffrey Bellew said Ahmed Elomar would be subject to the extended supervision order (ESO) for two years.
The order, issued with Elomar’s agreement, has more than 50 conditions including that he wear an electronic monitoring bracelet, live at an approved address and surrender any passports.
The 35-year-old can’t access R18+ material or transfer cash overseas without permission, visit unapproved places, drive heavy vehicles or have sleepovers at other people’s homes.
The judgment comes after Elomar won an appeal in June over a conviction for threatening to kill a spectator at a Sydney junior soccer match.
The appeal judge couldn’t be satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt that the Crown had proved its case about what was said at the May 2017 game.
Elomar was on parole at the time of the match for assaulting a police officer in 2012 during the Hyde Park riots.
He’s one of the first people in NSW to be subject to the ESO under the Terrorism (High Risk Offenders) Act.
Attorney-General Mark Speakman said there were other applications on foot and he expected more in coming months.
“This is a very tough regime, but an appropriately tough regime with checks and balances,” Mr Speakman told reporters in Sydney.
“NSW makes no apology for having the toughest anti-terrorism regime in the country.”
