Speeding offence fraud charge for Mehajer – News Report


Controversial Sydney businessman Salim Mehajer has been charged over his alleged role in using fake identification to avoid detection for traffic offences.

The former Auburn deputy mayor, who is serving time for electoral fraud, was arrested on Friday at a correctional facility in Cooma.

He was charged with four counts of making a false declaration for material benefit and four counts of dealing in identification information.

Police will allege Mehajer supplied the details of another driver and information for four speeding offences he had committed between 2012 and 2013.

“It’s a very serious offence, and if you’re out there and you are going to do those type of offences you will be caught, it’s as simple as that,” Detective Superintendent Linda Howlett told Seven News.

He was returned to custody with the matter to be mentioned at Cooma Local Court in July.
