The wife of Man Haron Monis, the Sydney hostage-taker shot to death by Australian police Monday, is not only accused of helping him commit murder, she also described herself as a terrorist and praised terror attacks in videos posted to YouTube.
Amirah Droudis, 35, went to the Campsie Police Station in Sydney on Tuesday as part of the conditions of her bail stemming from being charged with the murder of Monis’ ex wife, Noleen Hayson Pal, in which Monis was charged as an accessory, according to the Daily Mail.
Pal was stabbed repeatedly and set on fire in April 2013, reported the NY Daily News.
A woman believed to be Droudis appeared in several videos four years before the killing glorifying acts of terror — including the 9/11 attacks.
“Yes, we are happy about the punishment of Sept. 11,” she said. “Yes, we are happy about the punishment in Bali. Yes, we are happy about the punishment of the Holocaust and any other punishment that God sends to us,” she said.
The videos caused outrage in Australia when they were posted but no charges were ever filed.
About the same time the videos were posted, Droudis and Monis began sending taunting letters to the families of fallen Australian soldiers accusing the soldiers of atrocities against Muslims, according to The Australian.
The fact that both were out on bail has citizens outraged including New South Wales Attorney General Brad Hazzard.
“We are asking state agencies and federal agencies to look very closely at how this offender slipped through the cracks. How did this offender not come to the attention of state and federal agencies for more urgent action.” Hazzard told reporters.
