CONVICTION AND SENTENCE FOR TERRORISM OFFENCES UPHELD

The New South Wales Court of Criminal Appeal today upheld Faheem Khalid Lodhi’s conviction for three terrorism offences and his sentence of 20 years imprisonment.

Attorney-General Robert McClelland said he is pleased that the court has completed its consideration of this matter.

“The upholding of Mr Lodhi’s conviction and sentence demonstrates that those who are involved in preparing for terrorist acts can expect the full weight of the law to be brought to bear against them,” Mr McClelland said.

“The Government considers the protection of the Australian community to be a prime responsibility and is committed to pursuing those who threaten us.”
