– A young Muslim who has been under surveillance for four years threatened to “slit the throat” and “crack the neck” of an intelligence officer, a court has heard.
Milad Bin Ahmad-Shah Al-Ahmadzai, 23, is alleged to have made the telephone threat to a member of the Joint Counter Terrorism Team two weeks ago.
“I’m going to crack your neck,” he is alleged to have said in a telephone conversation on May 2nd.
“Come near my family again, I’m going to slit your throat, you pig.”
Security surrounded Mr Al-Ahmadzai’s appearance in Burwood Court in Sydney yesterday.
He was arrested at his Auburn home on Monday night by the Joint Counter Terrorism Team.
He has been charged with threatening serious harm to a Commonwealth official and with using a carriage service to threaten to kill.
Applying for bail for his client, lawyer Nick Hanna referred to the man who had allegedly been threatened as a “ghost”. By virtue of his job he is invisible”, and was therefore not under threat from his client.
The court heard the two had met three times and had 17 phone conversations. Mr Hanna said the meetings were at the officer’s initiation.
Sergeant Adam Wilczec, for NSW Police, opposed bail, saying the officer had made a statement that he feared for his safety.
“He believes the (accused) would be able to locate and harm his family.”
But Mr Hanna said his client had no history of violence despite being “under close scrutiny for a long period of time”.
Documents tendered to the court showed he had been suspected of links to terrorism for years.
Mr Hanna said the intense scrutiny could in fact have led his client to make a “spontaneous outburst”.
“He is 23, lives with his wife and 10-year-old stepson and his wife is five months pregnant.”
He said a search of his client’s premises he found no weapons.
Magistrate Margaret Quinn refused bail, saying there was evidence the accused man had had contact with the officer’s family.
The case was adjourned to July 24th – Mark Morri


About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
