Islamic State supporter allegedly carves ‘e4e’ into former soldier in Kempsey

  • AAP
The manager of a NSW jail where a teenage prisoner allegedly carved an Islamic State tribute into the forehead of a former Australian soldier has been suspended.

Corrective Services NSW commissioner Peter Severin today said he was “appalled” the 18-year-old radical had been placed in the same cell as the veteran at the Mid-North Coast Correctional Centre near Kempsey, northern NSW.

“I’m appalled that he was locked up together with this 40-year-old. The fact that he was a former ADF officer ... is an additional concern,” Mr Severin said.

The teenager, who allegedly used a razor blade in the attack, has since been transferred to the high-security Supermax prison at Goulburn, Mr Severin said, while an internal investigation into what took place is completed.

“I’m appalled about the fact that these two were allowed to share a cell. The investigation identified that there are certainly some questions as to how this decision was made,” he said.

“At face value, he should not have been sharing a cell with anybody.”

The NSW prisons minister will ask for an independent investigation into the management of radicalised prisoners within the state’s jails, in the wake of an alleged attack in which a former soldier had an Islamic State tribute carved into his head.

Minister for Corrections David Elliott said: “I share community outrage about this assault. I will ask the Inspector of Custodial Services for a full and thorough investigation into the management of radicalised prisoners in the system, including the assault.”

Earlier today, a teenager who allegedly carved an Islamic State tribute into a former Australian soldier’s head during a jailhouse attack was charged by police and will appear in court next month.

The 18-year-old is alleged to have got hold of a sharp weapon inside Kempsey prison, which he used to slice “e4e” into his alleged victim’s head during an attack in the jail’s maximum security section last week.


I don't want a eye for an eye from Islamists.

I want them destroyed.  Rather like the way responsible authorities treat rabid dogs.
