Australia Charges Extradited ISIS Suspect

Australian police charged a high-profile ISIS suspect with six terrorism-related offences on Sunday, two days after he was extradited from Turkey.

The suspect, Neil Christopher Prakash, was accused of offences including engaging in hostile activity overseas, supporting a terrorist organization, and advocating terrorism, police said.

He was charged in Melbourne by a counter-terrorism team after landing in Australia on Friday following his extradition.

The federal police said in a statement that the allegations carry maximum penalties ranging from five years to life imprisonment.

Prakash was arrested in Turkey in 2016 after crossing into the country from Syria.

He was sentenced in 2019 to seven years in prison by a Turkish court, which found him guilty of belonging to a terrorist organization.

He was stripped of his Australian citizenship in 2018. Australian Federal Police Assistant Commissioner Sandra Booth said the police have worked “tirelessly” to bring him before the courts.
