Australian Government Placed 12-year-old boy on terror radar

Australian police revealed on Thursday (15 October) that a 12-year-old boy is on the radar of the country's counter-terrorism authorities. The revelation comes just a day after the Australian government said it would strengthen its counter-terrorism laws.

A federal court has listed the 12-year-old boy and a group of men, who may have helped Farhad Jabar, 15, kill police employee Curtis Cheng on 2 October. Jabar was later killed by police officers. "We're shocked that a 12-year-old is on police radar for these types of matters. This threat has evolved, it's become younger," Australian Federal Police Commissioner Andrew Colvin told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).

Colvin added that "the problem is getting worse for Australia, not better. The number of individuals that we're concerned about overseas has plateaued a little. Some very good work is being done by our border agencies and our police and security agencies to stop people from leaving for the conflict zones, but there's no doubt that this problem is becoming more acute and more difficult."

The Australian government earlier issued a statement on toughening counter-terrorism laws, which read: "The new laws will, among other things, lower the age at which a control order can be applied from sixteen to fourteen years of age." The new laws will restrict people suspected of involvement in terror activities from leaving the country or certain areas. They will force terror suspects to remain under house arrest or wear a tracking device and restrict the movement of terror suspects as young as 14.
