Salim Mehajer Waits To Be Released From Jail

After winning his fourth attempt at bail, controversial Sydney businessman Salim Mehajer is waiting for the paperwork to be processed before he can be released.

The 31-year-old won his freedom in the NSW Supreme Court last Thursday after a two-month stint in jail but his release from Silverwater jail has been delayed partly due to the Easter long weekend.

AAP understands paperwork was lodged on Tuesday but more documents are needed before Mehajer can be released.

He's now likely to be released on bail on Wednesday. Justice Desmond Fagan on Thursday imposed strict conditions for his release - including a $200,000 surety.

The former Auburn deputy mayor will also have to report to Bankstown police station twice daily, not leave the state of NSW and not go within 500 metres of Sydney airport.

He has been in prison since January after being charged with perverting the course of justice for allegedly staging a car accident on his way to face assault charges.

Mehajer subsequently pleaded guilty to the assault offences and was placed on a good behaviour bond.

The court was told last week that Mehajer had been charged with a new count of perverting the course of justice for allegedly providing fraudulent letters in a bail application at Burwood Local Court earlier in March.
