Using terror laws on alleged rightwing extremist a federal first, says minister | Australia news | The Guardian: Using terror laws on alleged rightwing extremist a federal first, says minister | Australia news | The Guardian - His comments referred to Saturday’s arrest of Phillip Galea, 31, from Braybrook, in Melbourne. Galea is affiliated with the rightwing Reclaim Australia movement, and was charged with collecting or making documents likely to facilitate a terrorist act and planning or preparing for a terrorist act.

“This [arrest] underlies the fact that in Australia we police the laws regardless of people’s background, regardless of people’s ideology ... We’ve spent a lot of time since we arrived in office doing or fulfilling the most important responsibility of the commonwealth government, which is to keep the Australian people safe.

“And we’ve seen the rise of violent extremists threatening that security.”

When he appeared in the Melbourne magistrates court on Sunday, Galea described the charges against him as a “conspiracy against the patriot movement” before being remanded in custody to appear before the court again on Tuesday.
