Wife of jihadist Mohamed Elomar to face committal hearing

Tim Blair notes: Memo to Mohamed Elomar’s wife, shown leaving court today: your face is already covered, dear. h/t Marvin

THE wife of Islamic State jihadist Mohamed Elomar will face a committal hearing in May on charges of supporting terrorism.

Fatima Elomar, who was last week reprimanded by a magistrate for repeatedly delaying her case, had been expected to enter a plea yesterday.

Instead, the 29-year-old mother of four will face a three-hour committal hearing on May 4 to determine whether she should stand trial.

The committal hearing is set to begin almost a year to the day after she was arrested by counter-terrorism officers while trying to board a flight to Malaysia with her four children.

Ms Elomar was allegedly carrying cash, camouflage clothing, GPS watches and other items, which police say she was taking to her husband, believed to be fighting with Islamic State in the Middle East…

…Mohamed Elomar has posted pictures on social media of himself holding the severed heads of soldiers.
