Numan Haider Inquest: Terror Suspect At ‘Breaking Point’ Over Pressure From Parents, ASIO Officers

5768692-3x2-340x227Numan Haider, 18, was killed by a single bullet as he attacked officers outside the Endeavour Hills police station in September 2014.

Police had asked to meet him there to discuss his recent behaviour to assess what it meant for national security.

Haider had been under surveillance from counter-terrorism police for several months.

One of the teenager’s friends, Ljindim Sulejmani, was with him in the hours before his death and has given evidence to the coronial inquest.

Mr Sulejmani, 26, told the hearing he believed Haider “snapped” and stabbed the police officers because of pressure he was dealing with from his parents and ASIO.

He said he had witnessed Haider’s parents physically attack him for praying at the mosque twice daily.

They told him to “stop praying at the mosque, only extremists pray at the mosque”, the court heard.

Haider told Mr Sulejmani “they [his parents] hate me because I pray and attend the mosque too much”.

The 18-year-old’s passport was cancelled the day before he lashed out at police.

He had wanted to travel to Afghanistan with his parents to find a wife.

Mr Sulejmani said his passport cancellation followed harassment by ASIO officers who had been speaking with Haider’s parents.

While giving evidence, Mr Sulejmani made strong statements against the Islamic State group.

He said he was totally against violence and extremism and believes “Islamic State members have totally misinterpreted everything in the Koran”.

Mr Sulejmani said Haider never expressed any extreme views and described him as “fragile and harmless”.

He said Haider seemed “very collected and calm” in the hours before his death but said his friend “really hid his emotions very well”.

Haider in secret relationship, inquest hears

Mr Sulejmani said Haider had also recently ended a relationship with a woman and the stress of it contributed to him reaching breaking point when he attacked police.

The inquest heard from Haider’s former girlfriend Jinali Surendar, mentioned in Mr Sulejmani’s evidence.

The pair had become engaged in a religious ceremony but broke up two months before his death.

She had never been introduced to his family as she said they would not have approved because she was Australian-born of Sri Lankan background.

Ms Surendar told the hearing she was confused by the events that led to Haider’s death.

“Something had obviously gone wrong in the two months since we broke up,” she said.

“I’m so confused, it’s a total waste of life.”

Ms Surendar was with Haider when he waved a Shahada flag at police at Dandenong plaza.

She said it was now clear he was very frustrated with police and believed it was because his passport had been cancelled.

Another teen arrested was excused from giving evidence

One of the teenagers arrested during raids last April, relating to an alleged Anzac Day terror plot, has been excused from giving evidence at the inquest.

Harun Causevic was friends with Haider and has previously been the subject of terror charges.

He attended court today to lodge the application which was granted by coroner John Olle.

Another witness, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has also been excused from giving evidence.

Business & Finance

Why Improving Your Property Increases Its Value

Property appraisers understand that the only way for home owners to gain as much as they can from their properties are to invest in it. Investment here does not only refer to buying a estate with a house and substantial yard. It means investing on the interior and exterior areas through improvement such as upgrading furnishings and decorations and adding luxurious amenities to it.

Starting at the bottom most owners can afford a budget friendly estate then slowly work their way through it. However properties like adirondack lakefront property have twice the chance to be sold at a higher rates even with minimal investment on it. Because insightful buyers know that they can use this as a way to increase their net worth through renting it to others.

When it comes to rents and lodging this is where the money comes in. Land lords are able to earn back their investment and also gain enough money to further improve the estate too. Because landlords know that by constantly having the house maintained shows tenants that their comfort and well being is being acknowledge.

This proves to the tenant that they are not only a source of money for the landlord. But are also welcome guest who need to be showered with respect and dignity. So that their stay will be as enjoyable and comfortable thus leaving a good impression on the guest.

Tenants who leave with a satisfied look in their faces will always remember what it was like to stay in the estate. They will forever keep it in their memories and would usually talk about it to others. Because there will always be people seeking out potential places to visit and stay in, so it is necessary that property owners create not only a good place for tenants to stay in but should treat them well as if they are valuable too.

However this can also be an obstacle for some because not every tenant will be as gregarious as the ones describe above. There will be unscrupulous individuals out to prey on unsuspecting owners and sometimes they often leave with too much problems than the owner can expect. Therefore owners who wishes to engage in this kind of business should prepare themselves financially and legally.

Because you want to make sure that everything is settled through a written agreement. This agreement contains all the clauses that both parties have agreed on. And to breach any of the said clauses will allow a space for legal settlement to ensue.

Hence property owners know that increasing the value of a property means knowing what kind of purpose it has. For some it is to be used as a way to earn extra income through renting while others believe that reselling a home along with its contents should be enough to regain back their investment. Either the two options are good ways to earn money because with renting you can consistently earn back your investment though slow it maybe.


While reselling could take awhile to find the right buyer but it is still worth it at the end. Because the original price has been increased due to the investments one has made through repairs and upgrading the furnishing and other areas. Therefore property owners have a better chance of increasing their net worth through understanding what they want and need from their own properties.
