Delil Alexander was jailed in Syria after allegedly joining the Islamic State terrorist group.
He claimed he could not be released from jail because he had nowhere to go, after the Australian government stripped him of his citizenship in July 2021.
Alexander left Australia for Turkey, where he also holds citizenship, in 2013.
He told his family he was going to arrange a marriage and would return, but travelled to Syria where he is thought to have joined Islamic State.
In November 2017, Alexander was arrested by a Kurdish militia and in 2019 was jailed for 15 years by a Syrian court.
He has since been pardoned by the Syrian government but has remained in jail because he cannot go back to Turkey, and Australia cancelled his citizenship.
