A mere six weeks after spending two months in jail, controversial entrepreneur Salim Mehajer has found himself back in custody.

The Sydney property developer is facing numerous charges including that perverting justice by staging a car crash on his way to court to face assault charges last year.

The former Deputy Mayor of Auburn was apprehended after he breached his bail conditions by using two mobile phones.

Mehajer’s other bail conditions included having to report to Bankstown police station twice each day, not leaving the state of New South Wales and not going within 500 metres of Sydney Airport.
