BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:45 P.M.) – Australia’s most wanted Islamic State (ISIS) is currently behind bars in Turkey after his apprehension by the Turkish border police in 2016.

Neil Prakash (age 27) was attempting to cross into Syria from Turkey in 2016 when he was finally apprehended by the Turkish border police, the Daily Mail reported.

Once in custody, Prakash revealed to the Turkish officials that he married two women and fathered three children while being a member of the Islamic State in Syria, the Daily Mail continued.

The ISIS member is currently awaiting trial in Turkey and if convicted, he will face a lengthy prison term.

However, Australia is currently pushing to have Prakash extradited before his trial in Turkey.

Prakash has an outstanding warrant for his arrest in Australia and will face charges for terrorism if he is extradited.

I wouldn’t even seek extradition, at least before him finishing jail time in Turkey… If jails are still like in Midnight Express, with a little luck, he’ll cost zero to Aussie tax-payers : he might push the daisies up b4 going out.


I agree, rather than cost taxpayers $50000/year, just throw him in hole in Turkey.
