Mehajer guilty of electoral fraud plot

April 11, 2018

Salim Mehajer has been found guilty of electoral fraud before the 2012 Auburn City Council election.

Controversial Sydney businessman Salim Mehajer has been found guilty of being part of a 2012 electoral fraud plot that put him on Auburn City Council.

In Central Local Court on Wednesday, Magistrate Beverley Schurr found him guilty of multiple charges relating to plotting with his younger sister, Fatima Mehajer, who has previously pleaded guilty to 77 charges.

Mehajer was released from jail last week after being granted bail on a charge of perverting the course of justice for the alleged staging of a car accident on his way to face court last year on assault charges.
