WA police monitoring convicted terrorist Shayden Thorne ‘closely’ after his release from prison in Victoria

A convicted terrorist is being closely monitored despite his release from jail without being required to wear an electronic tracking bracelet, WA police say.

Shayden Thorne was among six offenders jailed over a plan to sail a fishing boat from northern Australia to overthrow the Philippines government, and is the second to be released from a Victorian prison.
