A man found guilty of preparing a terror attack in Melbourne and creating a handbook for wannabe attackers yelled “you weren’t given all the facts” to the jury after the verdict was delivered.

Phillip Galea was found guilty of planning and preparing a terror attack, after he spoke to an associate about targeting a left-wing rally with chemical bombs.

He had also looked up the addresses of the union movement’s Trades Hall headquarters, the Melbourne Resistance Centre and the city’s anarchist club.

Galea was also found guilty of creating a document called the “Patriot’s Cookbook”, described as a terrorist how-to-guide by prosecutors.

“You weren’t given all the facts,” the convicted terror plotter called out as the jury members were being taken from the courtroom today.

Galea – who was associated with the far-right group Reclaim Australia – insisted the first version of the guide was meant to be a Monty Python-esque satire.

He was arrested in August 2016 at his Melbourne home.
