The 40-year-old will appear in court on Friday, The New Zealand Herald said, adding that a residence in inner Sydney has been searched in connection with the arrest, as well as a storage facility where certain documents and hard drives were found.


Last week, police arrested several people in Melbourne on suspicion of preparing a terrorist attack on Christmas Day in the capital of Victoria state.


Earlier this month, two Sydney men were sentenced to 20 years in jail for plotting an Islamic State-inspired terrorist attack in the Australian capital.
