Martin Place terrorist Man Haron Monis’s links with extremist group Hizb ut-Tahrir revealed

MAN Haron Monis had “strong links” with extremist organisation Hizb ut-Tahrir before pulling off Australia’s first ever Islamic terror attack.

Former associates of the crazed gunman revealed Monis and his partner Amirah Droudis met regularly with Hizb ut-Tahrir organisers and attended a number of their events.

The Daily Telegraph has also obtained photos that show Man Haron Monis locked in discussion with radical Ismail al-Wahwah, the leader of Hizb ut-Tahrir Australia.

The two were snapped together at a rally in front of the Egyptian consulate in Surry Hills.
