Controversial former deputy mayor of Auburn Salim Mehajer has had his apprehended violence order amended so that he can now contact his estranged wife, Aysha Learmonth.
The AVO prevents him from physically or verbally threatening Aysha or anyone she is now in a relationship with and well as banning him from the homes in Sydney and Wollongong where she stays, reports Seven News.
Mehajer did not appear in court, with the amendments already agreed upon by both parties.
The order will stand for nine months.
During the court proceedings yesterday it was revealed that Mehajer reportedly “bombarded” his wife with up to 70 calls a day as well as installing a tracking device on her car.
The Daily Telegraph reports that court documents outline “obsessive and bizarre” behavior towards Learmonth after she moved out of the home they shared in April this year.
One incident involved Mehajer filing a missing persons report after she was five-hours late to meet him, telling police he feared she had been abducted.
He told police he had installed the tracking device on her car and provided maps as proof.
This latest news comes after a series of videos were released by A Current Affair in which Mehajar makes threats to both Learmonth and her parents.
"Aysha, you’ve got five minutes to call me," the former Auburn Council deputy mayor screams. “"Aysha, I hope you die, you sl*t ... I swear on the Koran, I swear to Allah".
When news of the couple’s split first broke, Mehajer denied the reports of a split or an AVO, telling News Corp “only death will do us apart [sic]."
