COUNTER-terrorism officers have charged a figurehead of last year’s Muslim riots and infamous Sharia “whipping” case over an attempted ATM ram-raid in Sydney’s north.
Wassim Fayad, 46, one of two head spokesmen during the riots, was arrested at 7.30am last Friday at Auburn and charged over the failed ram-raid involving at least two other men at North Ryde on May 15.
The investigation, kept under wraps until now, has been continuing for several months, running at the same time as another case with the Joint-Counter Terrorism Team examining a syndicate sending young Australian Muslims to fight in the Syrian civil war. Police also have been investigating Fayad’s activities to see whether he has any connection with the Syrian syndicate.
