Accused terrorist to stay behind bars

ACCUSED terrorist Omar Succarieh will wait until mid-February before knowing if his bail application is successful.

A short time ago, Brisbane Supreme Court Justice Jean Dalton accepted a request from Mr Succarieh's lawyer to delay the decision.

The 32-year-old has been behind bars since September 2014 when he was charged following counter terrorism raids in Brisbane and Sydney.

He is not expected to face trial until the last quarter of this year.

The Logan man is accused of giving money to Syrian militant group Jabhat al-Nusra, which the Crown also claims he planned to join.

Mr Succarieh has also been charged with facilitating arrangements for, and giving money to, fellow Logan resident Agim Kruezi so he could also allegedly travel to Syria.

A $600,000 surety was offered to guarantee Mr Succarieh's release.

Mr Succarieh told the court he should be allowed bail because his trail preparation was being hindered by inadequate computer access in prison.
