Controversial Islamic preacher gets bail
A CONTROVERSIAL Islamic preacher charged with child pornography offences and threatening a terrorist attack on Sydney's Mardi Gras parade has been granted bail in a Sydney court.
Ibrahim Siddiq-Conlon, 35, is accused of making a hoax terrorist threat on the Facebook page of Today FM's Kyle and Jackie O Show.
He allegedly outlined a "terrorist threat" to the annual Sydney parade that celebrates gay lifestyles and diversity, in a post on the show's online chat forum.
Siddiq-Conlon is also facing two separate charges relating to use of a laptop to access online child pornography and a charge of possessing child abuse material.
In granting bail in the NSW Supreme Court on Tuesday, Justice Geoff Bellew banned Siddiq-Conlon from using the internet and possessing a phone with internet capabilities.
