An Islamic extremist shot by police at Barnawartha has been handed over to Victorian armed crime squad detectives.
Joshua Clavell's extradition to Victoria from NSW was approved in Albury Local Court early on Monday afternoon during a brief hearing.
Clavell, 30, made no comment during a five-minute telephone hook-up with Nolan House at Albury hospital, where he remained under police guard in the intensive care unit.
He is expected to be transferred by ambulance to St Vincent's Hospital in Melbourne, again under police guard, though the timing of this depends on when a bed becomes available.
Clavell and his younger brother, Joel Clavell, 19, were shot last Wednesday afternoon at the Richardsons Bend nature reserve after they allegedly lunged at officers with a knife and a tomahawk.
Joel Clavell was taken to The Alfred hospital in Melbourne with life-threatening injuries.
Victoria Police had been aware Joshua Clavell was in the area and had travelled up from Melbourne to meet their NSW counterparts.
Counter terrorism detectives, who considered Clavell high risk , were at a petrol station at Barnawartha when they saw the brothers filling up their car.
The pair recognised them and took off, ramming an unmarked police car before driving to the reserve.
Clavell is charged with intentional exposure of police officer to risk by driving, aggravated intentional exposure of police officer to risk by driving, damage to emergency service vehicle by reckless driving and seven indictable counts of assault police.
IN OTHER NEWS:
Police prosecutor Sergeant Andrew Coombs said Clavell would be handed over to the armed crime squad's Detective Sen-Constable Robert Brain, one of several detectives - including officers from Albury and Wodonga - who was in court.
Defence solicitor Sue Robey, who appeared from Nolan House with Clavell and two Victorian police officers, said she was satisfied the extradition warrant was "in order".
Ms Robey said she understood there could be a delay in Clavell's transfer to Melbourne until a hospital bed became available, possibly not until the end of the week.
"There's no application by the defendant for release. He consents to the order."
But Sergeant Coombs said he was told by the Victorian officers that St Vincent's Hospital insisted "there will be a bed available shortly".
Clavell's matter will go before the Melbourne Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.
