Sydney man Bilal Khazal was charged today over terrorism activities. He was later granted bail during a brief court appearance.
Australian Federal Police (AFP) said the 34-year-old, who allegedly published documents inciting terrorism on the internet, was charged with one count of collecting or making documents likely to facilitate terrorist acts.
Check out the court reporter’s drawing accompanying the article.
It is alleged that among the documents was a book called Provisions In The Rules of Jihad – Short Wise Rules and Organisational Instructions Which Is The Concern of Every Fighter and Mujahid Against the Infidels.
Khazal allegedly compiled the book and then posted the material on the internet in late 2003.
Its publication was an offence under commonwealth law, the AFP said.
