Neil Prakash: Australia’s imprisoned ISIS mastermind denies links to Islamic State

Pssst… Neil, you made an ISIS recruiting video.

Australia’s most wanted terrorist Neil Prakash has begged a Turkish judge to believe he is not linked to ISIS, a court has heard.

The 26-year-old jihadist appeared via video link from prison in the Kilis Criminal Court in Turkey overnight, where he is being held on terror-related charges.

The legal proceedings in Turkey will have a significant bearing on whether Prakash is extradited to Australia.

Prakash has been kept in a Turkish maximum-security prison since his arrest in November, 2017.
