Following the horrific events involving Man Haron Monis I have considered information available to me and expressed concern to the Director of Public Prosecutions that Amirah Droudis was granted bail by the Local Court.
The charges laid against Amirah Droudis are extremely serious and her alleged actions involve a murder.
This week I asked the DPP to review any cases where bail had been granted where there may have been any similarity to the circumstances of Man Haron Monis.
In this case the allegation is that he and she had involvement in the murder of Monis’ ex-wife and on behalf of our community I want to know whether every aspect of her being on bail has been examined in all possible detail.
