Logan terror suspect granted legal aid

A LOGAN man being held on remand in Brisbane charged with terror-related offences has been granted legal aid.

Agim Kruezi, 23, is facing seven charges related to allegations he stockpiled weapons in preparation for a home-soil terrorist act, that he was preparing for incursions into war-torn Syria, and that he recruited people to join that fight.

Legal Aid lawyer Kylie Bell told the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Wednesday that Kruezi’s funding application had been approved, and his case was adjourned for mention on November 11.

Kruezi was one of two men arrested during counter-terrorism raids in Logan in September last year.

The other man, former Islamic Centre bookstore owner Omar Succarieh, 32, is alleged to have helped arrange for Kruezi to join the fight in Syria and of sending money to aid the Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist group.

Succarieh is also on remand ahead of a Supreme Court trial on three charges.
