A Sydney woman convicted of planning a terrorist attack with her husband had written letters to Bram 4 Life leader Bassam Hamzy and sent threats to NSW prison officials before being released.
Alo-Bridget Namoa and husband Sameh Bayda, both 22, were imprisoned after being found guilty of planning a terrorist attack on New Year’s Eve in 2015 in Sydney.
Namoa was sentenced to three years and nine months in 2018 with a non-conditional period of two years and ten months, which expired in January of last year.
She was released in December under strict conditional conditions after she renounced her radical Islamic belief and claimed that she had converted to Christianity.
At the time of her conditional hearing, AFP unveiled a whole series of disturbing letters Namoa had written while she was in the Silverwater Women’s Prison, insisting on stricter conditions for her release.

Namoa also wrote a series of troubling letters to NSW prison officials in which she said she had missed the “cut neck” look at “kuffar” – a different term for non-Muslims.
A series of letters obtained by The Daily Telegraph showed that Namoa had written to notorious gang leader Hamzy several times and asked him to take care of her husband after the couple was sentenced.
“I trust that you take him under your wing and look after him like his (sic) your own brother,” she wrote in April 2016.
In another letter to Hamzy, months later, she revealed that her telephone access had been withdrawn because she was accused of “stupid things” after giving another prisoner – whom she described as a “kafir b *** h” – a razor .
Namoa also sent a series of disturbing messages to the NSW Corrective Services Commissioner in which she said she had missed watching “kuffar” – a different term for non-Muslims – with their “necks cut.”
She also offered to send them photos of “beautiful beheadings” on her release, admitting that AFP officers had her phone that contained the violent content.

“Do you think we can change the brain from a kafir to macaroni? I loved people, laughed in your faces but in my head I laugh because I want all your neck haha, “she wrote.
“The blood of a Muslim is cheap, our men love death more than life. One day we will dominate, may we be the generation to raise the black flag. “
Namoa also expressed its contempt for the government at the time and referred to the former prime minister as Malcolm ‘bigbull’ and a ‘dirty Kafir’ who ‘must be put down’.
However, a letter from July 2019 revealed that Namoa called itself a “baby terrorist.”
She wrote a letter to Hamzy’s cousin Amna Rima and said, “Please, good grief don’t give me a Hamze belt when I see you … am I still your baby terrorist?”
According to the Telegraph, Namoa was hit last month with 21 strict conditions, which will be in force until December this year.
She must adhere to a curfew and report to Fairfield Police Station every week as part of her terms and conditions.
It also has limited telephone and internet access.
Her husband – who also claimed that he converted to Christianity behind bars – was released last month.
At the time of the couple’s trial, a court heard that their phones contained an enormous amount of extremist material, including graphics and videos of beheadings and soldiers wearing Islamic flags.
Namoa was sentenced to three years and nine months in 2018 with a non-conditional release of two years and ten months – and was released in December, while husband Sameh Bayda was released last month
Namoa had described the couple as a jihadi Bonnie and Clyde, and the crown claimed that their plan was for a New Year’s Eve attack by Bayda.
The judge accepted Bayda’s proof that he was inspired by jihadist propaganda to commit a violent street robbery, with two friends, of two non-Muslims walking the streets that night.
However, he has withdrawn from the plan.
“It follows that I also accept that Bayda did not intend to carry out a New Year’s Eve attack that would probably lead to his death,” Fagan said.
He discovered that Bayda had exaggerated to Namoa what he intended to do and she could have been taken over by his false bragging about a suicide mission.
Both were only 18 at the time and “demonstrably immature before their age.”
He accepted their evidence that they had renounced their fanatic beliefs and sincerely repented.
Reportedly, Namoa wrote the series of letters while spending time at Silverwater Prison in western Sydney
