Mehajer, 31, was granted bail on his fourth attempt last week and was finally released from Silverwater jail last night. The Sydney businessman had been in custody since January when he was arrested on charges he staged a car crash while he was on his way to court for an assault hearing.
In the initial few hours outside of the jail walls he took to Snapchat to post videos of himself getting a haircut and a facial. The first video was accompanied by a caption saying: “I’m back”.
Justice Desmond Fagan imposed strict conditions for Mehajer’s release including a $200,000 surety.
Mehajer refused to comment when approached by The Daily Telegraph this morning as he made the first of what will be many daily trips to the station.
Carrying a briefcase and a dark suit, he arrived at the station just before 9am and left after about 15 minutes.
Last night he was met at the jail by his lawyer, Zali Burrows, his father, Mohamed Mehajer, and friend Samir Bargshoon who took him back to his Lidcombe home. There was a minor hiccup before he got back to the luxury property — the driver of the dark blue Mercedes he was being driven home in had to park on the street when they were unable to access one of the 13 car spaces due to the high tech security gates.
Mehajer is scheduled to face court on April 11 over an alleged electoral fraud plot with his younger sister Fatima Mehajer.
