Brisbane, AAP  – A southeast Queensland man charged with terror-related offences is set to face a Brisbane court.

Agim Kruezi, 23, is facing seven charges over allegations he stockpiled weapons in preparation for a terrorist act in Australia, was preparing for incursions into war-torn Syria, and recruited people to join that fight.

His case is due to be mentioned in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Thursday morning.

Kruezi was arrested along with 32-year-old Omar Succarieh during counter-terrorism raids in Brisbane and Logan in September 2014.

Succarieh, a former Islamic Centre bookstore owner, is also on remand after he was last month committed to stand trial in the Supreme Court.

He is facing three charges over allegations he helped arrange for Kruezi to join the fight in Syria and sent money to aid the Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist group.

A date has not yet been set for his trial.
