Iran repeatedly warned Australia about the criminal past of the perpetrator of the Sydney cafe siege and called for him to be kept under surveillance, top officials in Teheran said.

Man Haron Monis, the Iranian-born self-styled cleric who died along with two of the people he had taken hostage, was being investigated over fraud charges when he fled in 1996, police said.

But Ebrahim Rahimpour, Iran's deputy foreign minister for Asia and Oceania affairs, said Australia ignored the guidance sent.
