The Courier Mail of Queensland, Australia reports that Matt Christopher Lockley has made his first appearance before a Brisbane magistrate in connecting with his arrest off a Virgin Australia flight from Brisbane to Bali on April 25, 2014.
Lockley, who attempted to gain entry to the plane's cockpit, triggered a hijacking in progress alert and the deployment of security and anti-terrorist units as the plan landed in Bali.
Sent back to Australia by Indonesia, Lockley is now facing criminal charges in Australia.
Lockley's attorney asked for bail on behalf of his client and a continuance of the case for three weeks to permit the defense to review the case.
Lockley's trial is set to continue on June 27th in Brisbane
