Alo Bridget Namoa, the Tongan Christian who converted to Muslim, pleaded guilty to 31 counts of failing to answer questions relating to her husband’s terrorism charges, when she appeared via video link in Sydney’s Downing Centre Local Court Thursday 25.
Police found she had a hunting knife and “document in Arabic text which provides instructions on how to make a detonator for an improvised explosive device connected with the preparation of a terrorist act,’ police allege in court documents.
The 18-year-old Tongan teenage wife was also facing terror related charges over an ¬alleged plot with her husband to stab a random member of the public.
Her husband Sameh Bayda, also 18, was charged with terror-related offences earlier this year and remains on remand in Goulburn SuperMax jail.
Yesterday Namoa was granted bail by magistrate Christopher O’Brien but said a ¬detention application would be heard next Thursday.
The Crime Commission questioned Namoa over her boasts that she and her husband wanted to become the “Islamic Bonnie and Clyde” and why she was downloading Islamic State propaganda. She refused to answer the question.
She will be sentenced at the Downing Centre local court on May 13.
