Australia wants Turkey to extradite him on a variety of charges including advocating and supporting terrorism and being a member of a terror group.

Prakesh was caught trying to cross the border into Turkey from Syria in October 2016 using false identity papers and has been held in a maximum-security jail in Gaziantep, southern Turkey since then.

Julie Bishop, Foreign Minister said in a statement that, "We are disappointed that the Kilis Criminal Court in Turkey has rejected the request to extradite Neil Prakash to Australia".

Prakash could now be freed from custody if the court determines he isn't under investigation for other crimes.

"Our goal is to ensure that Neil Prakash is not ever able to practice his evil trade of terrorism ever again", Mr. Turnbull said.

What is Prakash accused of?

The self-confessed IS member, also known by the alias Abu Khaled al-Cambodi, was described by former attorney-general George Brandis as the "the principal Australian reaching back from the Middle East into Australia".

Unver said the prosecution, which argued for Prakash's extradition, also had the right to appeal against the verdict.

When asked whether he was responsible for plots in Australia, Prakash told a court previous year: "I had something to do with [it], but I was not 100% responsible".

KIM LANDERS: So how did Neil Prakash respond to this?

A Melbourne court sentenced Besim in September 2016 to 10 years in prison for his attempt to commit an act of terrorism on Australian soil.

What did the court say?

Australia will not give up its quest to prosecute an Australian Islamic State group suspect despite a Turkish court rejecting an extradition application, the Australian Prime Minister said on Friday.

The judge did not give further reasoning, the report said.

Mr Turnbull said his government would not rule out appealing against the extradition decision.

A representative at Turkey's remote service in Istanbul had no prompt remark and the Turkish government office in Australia did not react quickly to a demand for input.
