The case of Talal Alameddine

A SNAPSHOT OF THE CASE OF TALAL ALAMEDDINE:

WHO

Talal Alameddine, 25, of Merrylands

THE CHARGE

Alameddine pleaded guilty to recklessly possessing a thing connected with a terrorist act and supplying a pistol after he supplied a pistol that was given to 15-year-old Farhad Jabar, who shot accountant Curtis Cheng as he left work at Parramatta Police Headquarters in 2015.

THE ARREST

Police swooped in the days after the shooting and arrested Alameddine and Raban Alou, who received the gun from Alameddine before giving it to Jabar.

THE JUDGMENT

Justice Peter Johnson said Alameddine displayed at least some level of sympathy for Islamic State and wasn't persuaded he had good prospects of rehabilitation.

THE SENTENCE

Alameddine was sentenced to a maximum 17 years and eight months in jail with a non-parole period of 13-and-a-half years.

THE DEFIANCE

Alameddine refused to stand in the dock as his sentence was handed down, which Justice Johnson said confirmed his concerns about Alameddine's fundamentalist beliefs. One of his supporters stormed out of court after learning the sentence, declaring it was "not f***ing fair".
