However, the court heard Mr Noori's "intent" was still an issue and it was yet to be established whether a defence of mental impairment would be open to him.

The court heard a "radicalisation" witness would give evidence in the case, along with police and paramedics, who would testify about his demeanour on the day.

Mr Noori, an Australian citizen of Afghan descent, was apprehended by an off-duty police officer shortly after the vehicle he was driving crashed.

The incident, just after 4:40pm on December 21, left 19 people hospitalised, including Mr Noori and a four-year-old boy.

The off-duty police officer had to undergo surgery for an injury to his finger that he sustained while arresting Mr Noori.

Nine of the injured people were foreign nationals from countries including South Korea, China, Italy, India, Venezuela, Ireland and New Zealand.

Mr Noori will return to court for a two-day committal hearing in September.
