A 25-year-old Sydney man convicted of terrorism offences has been arrested after he allegedly violated a control order.

Officers from the Australian Federal Police High Risk Terrorist Offender Team arrested the man on Saturday.

The man was released from custody less than two weeks ago.

The AFP did not immediately identify the man, but the Federal Court has only issued one control order recently.

Radwan Dakkak, 25, pleaded guilty and was convicted of two counts of associating with a terrorist organisation in December.

He was released from custody on January 1 after being held since his arrest in July 2019.

He is a supporter of the Islamic State (IS), and has distributed pro-IS material on social media and pledged allegiance to to the Caliphate and Abu Bakr AI-Baghdadi.

In December, Federal Court Justice David Yates banned Dakkak from using Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram and other messaging apps and social media, because of his radicalisation and lack of remorse.

Other elements of the control order include a curfew, reporting requirements, and a prohibition on paid employment without informing the AFP first.
