Ter­ror sus­pect ‘caught with po­lice academy maps’

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

A SUP­PORTER of rad­i­cal Is­lam who was al­legedly caught look­ing at maps of the NSW Po­lice Academy just days after his re­lease from prison will ap­ply for bail on Mon­day.

Greg Ceiss­man, 24, was al­legedly caught look­ing at the academy in Goul­burn on Google Maps and also had ac­cessed unau­tho­rised apps Skype, Face­book and What­sApp, court doc­u­ments ten­dered yes­ter­day said.

Po­lice ar­rested the Red­fern man on Fri­day and al­lege he was in breach of the strict con­di­tions he was or­dered to fol­low after be­ing re­leased from prison days ear­lier.

Ceiss­man, an Abo­rig­i­nal man who had been in jail since 2015 on car theft and other of­fences, is sus­pected of con­vert­ing to rad­i­cal Is­lam while be­hind bars.

On April 13, govern­ment lawyers made an ap­pli­ca­tion to have Ceiss­man sub­jected to an ex­tended su­per­vi­sion or­der and an in­terim su­per­vi­sion or­der, fear­ing he would en­gage in a ter­ror­ist at­tack.

The NSW Supreme Court re­leased Ceiss­man on strict con­di­tions.

He is un­der­stood to be sub­ject to more than 60 con­di­tions to live at a Red­fern apart­ment with his fa­ther.

On Fri­day, po­lice ar­rested him after they al­legedly found him breach­ing the or­ders by al­legedly hav­ing un­de­clared ac­cess to the apps and look­ing at the maps of the po­lice academy.
