Radwan Dakkak, 25, was arrested by Australian Federal Police at his Denistone home on Saturday morning for allegedly violating a court order restricting his activities.
He would have accessed documents online in support of executions, beheadings and torture, AFP acting commander Alex Nicholson said.
“(Dakkak) has an extremist ideology in line with the terrorist network of ISIS,” he said.
Dakkak was released from prison on January 1 after serving an 18-month prison sentence for being linked to a terrorist organization twice.
He pleaded guilty to both counts.
In December, Federal Judge David Yates Dakkak banned the use of Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram and other messaging and social media apps due to his radicalization and lack of remorse.
The other elements of the control order are a curfew, reporting obligations and a ban on paid employment without informing AFP in advance.
“Prior to his imprisonment, Dakkak was linked to a number of people who supported Islamic State’s ideology and activities in person, over the phone and online through social networking platforms,” the grounds read in the appendix. of Judge Yates.
“Its network is extensive and its interactions include discussions of extremist ideology and religiously motivated violence, including jihad.”
Following the alleged violations, Dakkak was indicted on Saturday with three counts of violating a monitoring warrant.
The offense carries a maximum prison sentence of five years.
Mr Nicholson said officials in his counterterrorism department were able to respond quickly to alleged violations due to their “continued monitoring” of Dakkak’s control order.
“This is what we do to keep the community safe,” he said.
“No specific or imminent threat to the community has been identified with respect to today’s activity or this investigation.”
