A Melbourne disability pensioner charged with funding Islamic State fighters in Syria has been freed on a $50,000 surety.
Isa Kocoglu was bailed on Thursday on strict conditions banning him from contact with ISIS sympathisers and social media, except to contact family members.
The 43-year-old married father from Hampton Park is charged with supporting persons engaged in hostile activity in Syria.
Australian Federal Police allege Mr Kocoglu sent almost $4000, using online payment system PayPal, to a known ISIS jihadist between November 2013 and August 2014.
It's alleged he administered a website used by people who support Islamic State ideology when he helped raise funds for the ISIS members.
The Victorian Supreme Court was told he made admissions to police, but claimed the money was being sent to someone engaged in humanitarian aid in Syria, rather than a terrorist.
The AFP believed Mr Kocoglu poses an unacceptable risk of interfering with witnesses and failing to answer bail if released.
But commonwealth prosecutors did not oppose bail, provided there were strict conditions.
