O sequestrador de Sydney era um criminoso que devia estar preso, em vez de estar a aguardar julgamento sob caução.
O Telegraph, neste artigo, deixa a pergunta: por que é que este tipo andava à solta?
Why was Sydney siege 'hate sheikh' Man Haron Monis at large?
It emerged that Monis, a self-styled "sheikh", had appeared before the Australian courts last year for writing hate mail to the families of Australian servicemen killed in Afghanistan. He was also on bail accused of being an accessory to the murder of his ex-wife, and for 40 counts of sexual assault and indecency. Despite his notoriety and public profile – he had vented his anti-Western views several times on Australian television – he was apparently deemed a harmless crank rather than an imminent danger by Australian intelligence officials.
A prisão preventiva é para este tipo de casos.
