Detained Indian doctor Mohammed Haneef on Saturday applied for bail after being charged with supporting a terrorist organisation in connection with the failed UK terror plot.
Haneef faced the Brisbane Magistrates court in this connection. But, following an hour-long hearing the court was adjourned and would resume proceedings again at 3pm (local time).
The Indian doctor faced the court charged with providing support to a terrorist organisation by allegedly "recklessly" providing his SIM card to UK terror suspects Sabeel and Kafeel Ahmed when he left the UK for Australia last year.
The charge carries a maximum penalty of 15 years.
His lawyer Peter Russo said: "We have just got to take one step at a time and try and work our way through it."
