(AUSTRALIA) Parramatta District Court Report: A convicted terrorist offender was sentenced to 15 monthsโ€™ imprisonment yesterday (29 November 2021) for repeatedly breaching a Federal Court of Control Order #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Dec.01: The 24-year-old Sydney woman, who pleaded guilty to three counts of failing to comply with the order – including by misusing her permitted mobile phone – is the first person convicted of contravening a post-custodial Control Order.

#AceDailyNews reports that a convicted terrorist jailed for breaching Control Order which was applied for by the Australian Federal Police and granted by the Federal Court of Australia, outlines conditions imposed on her when she was released from custody in December 2019.

She served almost four yearsโ€™ jail for conspiracy to do acts in preparation for a terrorist act after she attempted to acquire firearms to carry out a domestic terror attack on a Sydney shopping centre.

In July 2020, just six months after her release from prison, the AFP High Risk Terrorism Offenders team arrested and charged the woman with repeatedly contravening conditions of the Control Order.

This included misuse of her mobile phone and requesting other people to use the social media platform WhatsApp on her behalf.

She has been in custody since her arrest last year and the sentence was backdated to reflect time served, so she was released from prison yesterday (29 November 2021).

AFP Assistant Commissioner Scott Lee said Control Orders are among the legislative measures used by authorities to protect the community from terrorism, by restricting certain actions and imposing other obligations on those subject to the orders.

โ€œThe AFPโ€™s High Risk Terrorism Offenders teams around Australia work tirelessly with our partner agencies to ensure community safety and we take seriously any breach of a Control Order,โ€ he said. โ€œThis sentencing shows any violation of these orders can attract a jail term.

โ€œThis is a very good outcome for the community and demonstrates the commitment of the AFP and our Commonwealth and State partners to keeping Australians and Australiaโ€™s interests safe.โ€

About 70 per cent of convicted terrorist offenders released on Control Orders since 2019 have been prosecuted for contravening their orders.

#AceNewsReport – July.25: The men got between three-and-a-half and seven years of jail time: The attack in Yuen Long, which was captured by victims and bystanders on mobile phones, left the city in shock.

#AceDailyNews reports on the Yuen Long Attack 2019: Hong Kong court jails seven men after violent attack on pro-democracy protestors โ€ฆ..

Police were accused of arriving late to the scene and doing little to stop the violence, charges they have denied as Hong Kong reeled from armed mob violence

They were also accused of colluding with the attackers, some of whom had triad connections. 

However, these denials did little to stop to growing mistrust of the police at a time when Hong Kong was facing widespread anti-government protests. 

The footage inside Yuen Long, which went viral on social media, showed groups of men, suspected to be triad gangsters, dressed in white shirts and beating passengers with sticks, metal rods and bats.

Tens of thousands took to the streets in the days afterwards to protest against the violence

The seven-year jail term for one of the convicted men is the highest sentence that the District Court could impose.

The judge was insulted by supporters of the men, with some referring to him as “dog judge” as he walked outside the court, AFP reported: HK police accused of ‘re-writing history’ of attack

Earlier, while hearing mitigation pleas from lawyers, the judge said that the “indiscriminate assault” needed to be “severely” punished. 

One of those convicted apologised to his victims and said he had acted on impulse. A large group of masked men in white T-shirts stormed Yuen Long station
