Belal Betka, 25 will be the first “Australian-based person” to be charged with foreign incursion offences after he was arrested in Sydney suburban home yesterday morning.
The important aspect to focus on is that Belal Betka is the “first Australian based” which could indicate that the legislation will be used to arrest and charge people who were sending money or material supplies through third parties. What may have seemed innocuous at the time, in the future could be seen as quiet the opposite. For example Amendement 30.
The Counter‑Terrorism Legislation Amendment Foreign Fighters 2014 superseded the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation Act 1979, and amendment point 30 adds one an extra point to 34L
(10) A person commits an offence if:
(a) the person has, in accordance with a warrant issued under this Division, been requested to produce a record or thing; and
(b) the person engages in conduct; and
(c) as a result of the conduct, the record or thing is unable to be produced, or to be produced in wholly legible or usable form. Penalty: Imprisonment for 5 years.”
Betka had returned back to Australia from Syria in 2015. The arrest is seen as a flow on from the arrest of Fouad Moussa (tangentcode) who allegedly sent monies through electronic carriage service.
In UK four men have been arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism under section 41 of the Terrorism Act 2000. (guardian)
“The arrests followed a joint operation by police and MI5. They made their move having decided it was too risky to allow the suspects to remain free. This was based on intelligence, which can be wrong, rather than evidence, which police say they are now trying to obtain.”
March 2013, Thugs assaulting the Yellow Man of Aleppo. At this time the US Backed Rebels were striking deep into the soft suburbs of Syrian cities terrorising the citizenry in what will be remembered as the year of the US Backed Bully. Now in 2017 this video remains on a fibre of the internet as controlled opposition attempts to purge You Tube and wikipedia of US Backed Rebel war crimes.
