& # 39; Two years in jail is enough & # 39 ;: Sydney jihadist who, during his trial, gave the one-fingered ISIS greeting for trying to participate in the terror group, is released from prison – because the judge says he is GOOD CHARACTER is
- Moudasser Taleb was arrested at Sydney airport in June 2017
- Taleb was found guilty of preparing to travel to Syria in April for hostile activities
- He got a good bond of five years after being in jail for two years
A young, wannabe Islamic State Warrior detained at Sydney airport trying to fly to Syria, was released from prison after five years of good behavior.
Moudasser Taleb, who had not received a plane ticket and little money in June 2017, was found guilty by a jury in April this year to prepare for trips to Syria for the purpose of engaging in hostile activities.
The defense had claimed that Taleb had no intention of waging war or that he was mentally ill at the time.
Moudasser Taleb (pictured with the ISIS greeting) was arrested at the Sydney airport in June 2017.
Taleb was 22 years old when he was caught at the airport in June 2017.
He told the police that he was a tourist and not a terrorist while wearing military clothing.
Taleb was later found with video & # 39; s on his phone of beheadings, people with ISIS flags and battlefields.
He was seen with a one-fingered ISIS greeting when he appeared at the court in April.
NSW Supreme Court Justice Peter Hamill said on Friday that the two years Taleb had already spent in custody were sufficient.
The judge found him of good character despite his crime.
Taleb appeared to have schizophrenia after he was detained.
& # 39; I agree that his mental illness had a major impact on his moral guilt, & # 39; said Justice Hamill, referring to a diagnosis of schizophrenia after Taleb's arrest.
He is released from prison and gets a good five-year bond after two years of service
Justice Hamill said that he was undoubtedly the decision to place Taleb on good behavior. The band would be criticized by public commentators who think that a sentence is never long enough.
But he said all the facts in front of him & # 39; shout & # 39; for a sentence that & # 39; the young, mentally ill and vulnerable perpetrator & # 39; the chance of rehabilitation.
The judge said that Taleb knew what he was doing was illegal, but added that he would not have gone to the airport without the & # 39; properly appropriate & # 39; intervention and encouragement of an undercover police officer.
