Melbourne Muslim accused of funding terrorism ‘sent money to ISIS by depositing cash into Sydney banks’

A Melbourne man accused of supporting Islamic State jihadists in Syria by sending money that was collected online and deposited at a Sydney bank has faced court.

Hampton Park resident Isa Kocoglu, 43, appeared in Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday charged with supporting persons engaged in the Syrian conflict.

It’s alleged Kocoglu was an administrator of a website used by people who support Islamic State ideology when he helped raise funds for a known ISIS jihadist.
