No re­morse over IS ter­ror

The Weekend Post - - Nation -

AN un­re­morse­ful Is­lamic State sup­porter who helped a teenage ter­ror­ist kill NSW Po­lice ac­coun­tant Cur­tis Cheng has been jailed for at least 28-and-a-half years.

Mi­lad Atai was sen­tenced yes­ter­day for as­sist­ing and en­cour­ag­ing Farhad Jabar, 15, to shoot Mr Cheng at the state po­lice head­quar­ters at Par­ra­matta in 2015 and help­ing the boy’s sister reach IS in Syria.

In jail­ing the 22-year-old, NSW Supreme Court Jus­tice Peter John­son said Atai was a sup­porter of ex­treme ji­had be­fore the ter­ror­ist at­tack and ap­peared to still hold rad­i­cal views.
