Not the Australian - they have Subscriber only content
Anyone watching channel nine right now ?
Dr Sally Lievesly from London. Her opinion ( what I understood ) was that by having his name published is likely to incite him to act. She looked shocked when the Australian reporters told her some media outlets had decided to publish his past history (enough to identify him )even though the media had all known who he was all day but chosen not to broadcast it.
AN Iranian self-styled sheik who sent offensive letters to the families of dead Diggers and is on bail for accessory to murder was last night holding 15 people hostage in a Sydney cafe.
The 49-year-old, who lives in Sydney’s southwest, stormed the Lindt cafe in Martin Place yesterday morning, brandishing a sawn-off shotgun and sparking one of the biggest hostage dramas in the nation’s history.
The heart of Australia’s biggest city was locked down and thousands of office workers were evacuated or kept trapped in their buildings after a gunman stormed the Lindt Chocolate Cafe in the CBD about 9.40am.
I couldn't get back in to that link, I had to log back in but it times out :/
So I googled and got this one, but with no name.
Just watching ABC a minute ago, they were stating police are STILL urging people not to publish his identity.
If people die because of it, I wonder if they'll think it's worth the extra circulation. :|
eta: Just saw that police have said it's ok to discuss. Still, I hope there's no backlash.
With that said, read how he murdered his ex wife. Horrific. Just . awful. I am even more scared for those people now.
I guess this may be the article, sleep. Not sure, but it appears to be their latest one.
Gunman named as Man Haron Monis - also known as Sheik Haron
Man Haron Monis - also known as Sheik Haron - has been named as the gunman holding up to 15 people hostage in a Sydney café and is believed to be an Islamic State preacher who is on bail for accessory to murder.
The 49-year-old man lives in southwest Sydney, but is originally from Iran and a self-proclaimed sheik, has previously accused the families of Australian dead soldiers of being murderers and also been charged with sexual assault, according to The Daily Telegraph.
Arriving as a refugee in Australia in 1996, the hostage taker was charged with accessory - both before and after the fact - for the murder of his ex-wife - who was allegedly stabbed and set on fire on a flight of stairs in her apartment building in Sydney.
The man's current partner was charged with murder but they both received bail as the case was deemed too weak.
