Salim Mehajer is now accused of threatening the family of a Sydney siege survivor. His colleagues, once again, say he has brought shame on their council.
Mehajer, whose lavish wedding outraged the city in August, allegedly threatened Bruce Herat at a gym in Burwood on September 16.
Bruce Herat, whose son Joel was one of the Lindt Cafe workers taken hostage by terrorist Man Monis last December, accused Salim Mehajer of threatening his children after he asked the deputy mayor to stop dropping weights on the floor of Anytime Fitness.
Mr Mehajer allegedly said he would “find out where you live and have your kids kidnapped” following the confrontation.
The Daily Telegraph understands Burwood police are planning to charge Mr Mehajer today and also slap him with an AVO.
It is expected Mr Mehajer will be issued a court attendance notice for a future court date.
