An Australian man from Sydney has been jailed for more than five years for preparing for a terror attack in Bangladesh.

The man, Nowroz Rayed Amin (30), was stopped at Sydney Airport in February 2016. Police found camouflage gear, tactical boots, an electronic copy of the bomb-making manual "The Anarchist Cookbook", and USB sticks containing terrorism-related material, including 10 issues of the Islamic State magazine. Amin was not allowed to board the flight, and his passport was canceled.

There were also videos of executions and suicide bombings, reports The Sydney Morning Herald.

Between May 2015 and February 2016, Amin was an Islamic State supporter and has been known to speak with two Bangladeshi men on social media where they discussed his plans to travel there.

More than two years later, in June 2018, he was arrested at his home at Ingleburn in Sydney's south-west. He pleaded guilty this year to doing an act in preparation or planning for a terrorist act, and intentionally attempting to export goods that advocated the doing of a terrorist act.

On Monday, a Sydney court jailed Amin for five years and four months, with a non-parole period of four years.

NSW Supreme Court Justice Peter Garling said that Amin readily agreed that he was seeking to identify someone overseas who would teach him to use explosives, but had insisted the explosives were only to be used in Bangladesh and not Australia.

"He had not taken any steps to arm himself or provide access to arms to enable him to be an effective participant in any IS or other hostile activity in Bangladesh," Justice Garling said, adding, "I am satisfied that he has reasonable prospects of rehabilitation and that he has abandoned -- or is well on the way to -- his extremist ideological views."

sounds too good to be true sound like a setup. why would a terrorist board a flight with all that material, giving away his motive.

Good work by Aussie agencies to capture him. But the laws here are very weak, the punishments are too soft. He will get a good lawyer and walk free pretty easily or with minimum sentence.
A lot of people who came here on Asylum are like that. Fanatics! Weirdoes!
