Police probe whether terror accused set up by brother of Aussie Sportsman

20 October 2018 11:59 am - 7     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The brother of a prominent Australian sportsperson may have been involved in setting up a 25-year-old Sri Lankan student over an alleged Sydney terror plot.

Charges against Mohamed Kamer Nilar Nizamdeen were formally dropped by NSW police on Friday after the 25-year-old spent 40 days in a supermax jail accused of concocting an ISIS-inspired terror plot.

The plan, detailed in a notebook found inside Nizamdee's desk at the University of NSW, was to allegedly target iconic Sydney land marks and high-profile Australians including former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and former Foreign Minister Julie Bishop.

The Sri Lankan student was freed on bail last month after the sole piece of evidence against him fell apart. (TenDaily)

    Jealousy was its peak......... and it was framed, to cut off the successive route of Kamer. We Muslims in Sri Lanka are peace loving citizens., and the whole world is being aware who are the real terrorist.

    Aney paw. Not a single pig is slaughtered. Only chiken, goats, sheep and pregnant cows are slaughtered by axing. Hari paw. Peace (pieces).

    As I said in my earlier posts. The Australian authorities will get to the bottom of this and find out who framed this young man. Australia is no banana republic. But with a strong justice system. No one will be accused unjustly, It is a country that abides by the law. No bribing.

    We must observe this, as a incident that happened to a Sri Lankan, not to a Muslim, Tamil or a Sinhalese.
