Othman Ayed Hamdan denied bail

Othman Ayed Hamdan was denied bail this morning by Judge Richard Blaskovits. Hamdan will be kept in custody and his next court appearance is scheduled for September 2 at 9:30 a.m.

The 33-year-old is facing six counts of counselling to commit murder and assault causing bodily harm on behalf of a terrorist group for posts he’s alleged to have made on social media between September 2014 and July of this year.


There is a publication ban in place over the case which prevents details on information being provided.

Othman was arrested back on July 10.
