Melissa Caddick Son: A year after the high-flying billionaire disappeared from Sydney’s eastern suburbs, Melissa Caddick’s husband has made a series of explosive allegations regarding his wife’s disappearance and assumed death. The claims come from the husband of fraudster Melissa Caddick.
Several months after Ms Caddick’s decomposing foot was discovered on a secluded beach hundreds of kilometers from her family’s Dover Heights home, Anthony Koletti claims to have “figured out why she died.”
Despite the fact that his wife had disappeared in the early hours of November 12, only two days after the corporate watchdog searched their house, Mr Koletti had been mostly quiet since the incident.
On November 12, at 5.30 a.m., Ms Caddick’s adolescent son reported to police that he heard the front door shut.
Due to the ongoing investigation into the disappearance of Sydney lady Melissa Caddick, her family may lose their living allowance. Caddick is accused of fraud and has been charged with violations of criminal and corporate law.
The federal court heard on Monday that Caddick had just $5,600 in bank accounts in his name at the time of his arrest.
In contrast, Asic, the financial services watchdog, wanted to recover as much money as possible for investors who had lost millions of dollars by placing their trust in Caddick and her business Maliver.
In a statement, Asic attorney Stephanie Fendekian stated that an agreement had been reached to put an end to all legal and living expenses being paid from Caddick’s assets to her husband Anthony Koletti and her son, as well as her brother Adam Grimley, who has been representing his sister in the case.
In an earlier decision, the court ordered that $66,000 in legal costs be paid, as well as a monthly allowance of $1,700 to cover the living needs of Koletti and Caddick’s kid.
The fees did not cover the mortgages on two properties in Caddick’s name, which had been paid until March, but they were required to cover the costs of her son’s private school tuition and the living expenses of Koletti, an unemployed hairdresser who had previously provided evidence to the court that he had only $1.95 in his bank account at the time of the filing.
Also on Monday, the federal court heard testimony that the interim receivers and liquidators assigned to examine the assets of Caddick and her business Maliver discovered “a number of potential contraventions of corporate governance and criminal law.”
According to the findings of the investigation, the bulk of Caddick’s assets, including real estate, stocks, and luxury goods, were held in her personal name rather than the name of her business, in which the vast majority of individuals had invested. According to the court, this may make it more difficult for her to refund some of the money she received from her former customers.
Ms Caddick was operating a Ponzi scam via her company, Maliver, at the time.
She was accused of defrauding customers, who were mostly relatives and friends, out of millions of dollars in order to finance her extravagant way of life.
In the shocking Spotlight preview, Mr Koletti claimed that his wife had been murdered – despite the fact that police have repeatedly said that it is more probable that Ms Caddick committed herself herself.
