Queensland Terror Plotter Awaits Sentence

A man who attempted to build Molotov cocktails as part of a terror plot will hear his sentence in a Queensland court.

Agim Kruezi has admitted to preparing for incursion into a foreign state and preparing or planning for a terrorist act.

He planned an attack on Australian soil after being prevented from travelling to Syria to fight with a terror group, his sentencing hearing has heard.

Kruezi purchased 10 litres of petrol in 2014 before attempting to buy glass bottles suitable to make Molotov cocktails south of Brisbane.

His actions led to police raiding his home in September 2014 where they found the petrol, a bow and arrows, a loaded rifle, knives, two balaclavas, an ISIS flag pinned to his wall and extremist literature.

Kruezi's terror plot was "unsophisticated" but it didn't make his offending less serious, the prosecution told Brisbane Supreme Court on Monday.

He is facing up to 18 years in jail for the offences.

Justice Roslyn Atkinson will hand down her sentence on Tuesday.
