RNA - The 42-year-old electrician was working alone and there was no domestic-related terror threat, Australian Federal Police Commissioner Andrew Colvin said, Al Manar reported.
“We will allege he has utilized the internet to perform services for ISIL,” Colvin said.
The police commissioner also said that the man, is accused of being active in researching and designing a laser warning device to help warn about incoming guiding munitions on ISIL locations in Syria and Iraq. Secondly, the suspect has allegedly been researching, designing and modeling systems to assist ISIL’s efforts to develop their own long-range guided missile capabilities.”
The man, from Young, a town about 165 kilometers (102 miles) from the Australian capital of Canberra, is expected to appear in court later Tuesday on foreign incursion charges that carry sentences of life imprisonment.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said the incident was “yet another reminder of the enduring threat we face from Islamist terrorism”.
“They want to divide us, they want us to turn on each other, we will not let them succeed,” he said.
Canberra has become increasingly worried about homegrown militancy and the terror threat level was raised in September 2014.
