Man Haron Monis, born Manteghi Boroujerdi but known as Sheikh Haron, was identified as the Islamic terrorist who held several people hostage in a café in Sydney, resulting in 3 deaths. He was out on bail on a charge of colluding with girlfriend, Amirah Droudis, to murder his ex-wife, who was stabbed 18 times and set on fire in 2013, allegedly by the girlfriend.
Daily Mail On December 12 last year, Monis, 49, and girlfriend, Amirah Droudis, 34, who is charged with murder, were both released on bail reportedly because the prosecution case against them for the death of Noleen Hayson Pal was considered ‘weak’.
Telegraph The man behind the shocking siege in a Sydney café was Man Haron Monis, a notorious 49-year-old self-proclaimed sheikh and his girlfriend, were well known for multiple crimes including sending offensive letters to grieving families of dead Australian soldiers and allegedly murdering his ex-wife.
In October, he was chanrged with 40 indecent and sexual assault charges, including 22 counts of aggravated sexual assault and 14 counts of aggravated indecent assault relating to six women. In 2002 he faced charges of sexually assaulting a woman and of joining with his current girlfriend to stab his ex-wife to death in Sydney last year.
Monis and Amirzh Droudis were arrested on November 15 last year and charged. Evidence given during a bail hearing in Penrith Local Court last December said a witness saw Ms Hayson Pal having fluid poured on her and set alight by a woman wearing a ‘black cape’ and a headscarf, the Daily Telegraph reported.
The lawyer who acted for both Monis and Ms Droudis last December, Manny Conditsis, told Daily Mail Australia the pair had been granted bail because the charges of accessory to murder and murder were based on ‘circumstantial’ evidence. This is despite the fact that Monis had prior convictions – for writing malicious letters to the families of Australian soldiers who died in Afghanistan – and the outstanding charges over allegations of indecent and sexual assault relating to his career as ‘a spiritual healer’.
He was due in court due in court in February next year for the sexual assault charges which stem from his western Sydney practice as a ‘spiritual healer’ and black magic practitioner. The charges included 22 counts of aggravated sexual assault and 14 counts of aggravated indecent assault against seven women.
