A Melbourne magistrate has refused bail for three of the five men accused of plotting to attack an army base in Sydney.
The bail application for Yacqub Khayre, Saney Aweys and Nayef El Sayed took twice as long as expected.
The prosecution alleged the men, who are charged with terrorism offences, may flee the country or re-offend if they were released.
But the defence argued the men were being kept in the harshest prison regime in Victoria and may not face trial for two or three years.
Magistrate Peter Reardon refused bail for the three accused.
Mr Reardon ruled the conditions the men were being held in were not desirable and not what the public would expect.
But he said that did not justify the granting of bail.
The men waved to their supporters as they were taken in to custody after the four day bail application.
