Radical self-styled sheik Man Haron Monis was on bail at time of siege

The radical self-styled Muslim Sheik Man Haron Monis behind the siege that saw 17 people held hostage in the Lindt cafe on Martin Place was a “damaged-goods individual” who could have lashed out because he felt he had “nothing to lose”, his former lawyer says.
Monis, who was killed during the final minutes of the siege in Sydney’s CBD, was no stranger to police; with a long rap sheet including allegations of sexual abuse and organising the murder of his ex-wife.
Monis was born Manteghi Bourjerdi and fled from Iran to Australia in 1996 where he changed his name to Man Haron Monis and assumed the title of Sheik Haron.
Lawyer Manny Conditsis, who represented Monis when he was charged last year with being accessory to the murder of ex-wife Noleen Hayson Pal, described the self-declared sheik as a “damaged-goods individual”.
