A teenager has pleaded guilty to plotting to behead a police officer and shoot bystanders during an Anzac Day service in Dandenong last year.
It has been reported that at a brief hearing at the Supreme Court, Sevdet Besim, 19, of Hallam, pleaded guilty to colluding with a teenage boy in the UK to carry out the terror attack.
He appeared on Thursday morning, 30 June, to answer charges that he carried out an act in preparation or planning for a terrorist attack.
The offence carries a maximum of life imprisonment.
According to Australian Federal Police, Besim had planned to drive into a police officer with a car, behead the officer and use their gun to shoot other people.
He also had plans to stuff explosives into a kangaroo’s pouch, paint it with an Islamic State symbol and let it run among police officers.
The accused was reportedly close to Numan Haider who was fatally shot after allegedly attacking two police officers with a knife outside Endeavour Hills police station in September 2014.
Besim was excused from giving evidence at Haider’s coronial inquest this year due to possibly incriminating himself for his own trial.
He is due to appear at a plea hearing at the Supreme Court on 1 August
