Salim Mehajer has been found guilty of intimidating his ex-wife.Sydney property developer Salim Mehajer will be sentenced later this year after being found guilty of intimidating his ex-wife when he emailed and messaged her in 2017.
The 31-year-old’s evidence was on Tuesday rejected as “confusing” and “self-serving” after he claimed his ex-wife Aysha Learmonth may have sent an Instagram message to herself using his account in November.
The former Auburn deputy mayor told Burwood Local Court she’d also occasionally slept over during that time and was “flirtatious” at social gatherings after she moved out in 2016.
Ms Learmonth previously told the court the messages made her feel uneasy and unsafe.
Magistrate Jacqueline Trad found Mehajer guilty of intimidation but dismissed another charge of contravening an apprehended violence order.
Earlier this month, Mehajer was found guilty of electoral fraud and, following a fourth bail application, released from prison after spending two months behind bars.
