Salim Mehajer reportedly threatened to “do what gangstas do” and kill his ex-girlfriend and her family

“In that position, he threatened her that he would ‘do what gangstas do,’ kill her family members in front of her before he kills her,” Gilson said.

“He said he would shoot her mother and make her watch.”

The woman’s evidence, according to Crown, was that Mehajer said “if he wasn’t able to do it” because he was in custody, “he would hire someone outside to do it.”

The first allegation is that Mehajer hit his then-partner ten times on the head after an argument over necklaces in the car on the way to a restaurant.

The second allegation is that Mehajer, wanting to know who the woman was texting, pinned her to the bed and “squeezed her hand with the phone in it until the screen broke”.

“She felt pain and she told you the glass went into her thumb,” the prosecutor said.

The fourth allegation is that Mehajer ‘attached’ the woman to something ‘heavier than a Snickers or Mars bar’, gave her a dead arm and injured him ‘seriously’.

He is said to have screamed, cornered her in the bathroom, pushed her against the wall and put his hands over her nose and mouth.

“At first I screamed because I didn’t know what he was going to do,” the woman said, according to the evidence read by prosecutors.

“He told me he could easily kill me, he could keep hitting me until I wouldn’t wake up.”

She said it was “the most aggressive thing I’ve ever seen him do.”

“He just kept repeating that he could easily kill me, and he was like, ‘You got this, you got this’.”

The woman said she felt weak, was shaking uncontrollably and had passed out, and “when she came to, he hit his head” on the toilet.

Gilson said Mehajer described the relationship with the police as “perfect” apart from the fact that the woman saw pictures on his phone that made her jealous.

However, the woman said “everything was wrong”, she “felt like she couldn’t walk” and she “felt safe to leave when he went to jail”.

“She used the phrase ‘cycle of abuse,'” Gilson said.

He said Mehajer had addressed the applicant’s mental state and in his police interview suggested that she was “suffering from psychosis and claimed that she was making something up”.

Gilson said Mehajer also claimed the woman “may have had a motive for lying” due to allegations of jealousy or cheating they both faced, which were later retracted and dismissed.

The prosecutor said it was “verbatim” and that the applicant’s credibility was central to the case.

Mehajer’s closing speech is expected on Monday. The trial before Judge James Bennett continues.
