Mehajer can only make calls and send texts through the SMS and phone service functions and not online or via any messaging applications such as WhatsApp.

Mehajer is banned from using “any social media platforms” including Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat and Twitter, the new bail conditions state.

He can send and receive emails via one email address which he has provided to police, prosecutors and the court.

Mehajer must report once daily to police, abide by a curfew at his Lidcombe home, not approach any crown witnesses, can’t have a passport and can’t leave NSW or go near any domestic or international departure point.

He’s allowed access to one computer to prepare the documents necessary for his ongoing court proceedings.

Mehajer must make both the phone and computer available to the police for inspection if they demand access.

The 33-year-old is due before Cooma Local Court on Wednesday. He must provide the relevant legal parties with details of his flights from Canberra Airport and travel strictly in the company of his solicitor, Zali Burrows.

Police will allege in court he supplied fraudulent identification information relating to four speeding offences he had committed between 2012 and 2013.

He is additionally fighting allegations he staged a 2017 crash in which his Mercedes AMG collided with another vehicle before he was meant to appear in court over a taxi driver assault. His trial has been listed for June 2020.
