A Queensland teenager had his passport cancelled after an Australian Security and Intelligence Organisation assessment found he travelled to Syria to engage in “politically motivated violence” or commit acts in support of it.

But Oliver Bridgeman’s lawyer argues that Asio’s evidence, which is drawn from publicly available material such as social media posts and media reports, as well as a Queensland police liaison, is “incapable of rationally supporting” the intelligence agency’s conclusions.
