A FOR­MER Mon­gols bikie who al­legedly stalked his wife for about a month has been granted bail.

The 44-year-old, who can­not be named for le­gal rea­sons, re­peat­edly vis­ited his for­mer part­ner’s home in breach of court or­ders ban­ning him from ap­proach­ing his ex-wife.

He was granted bail in the South­port Mag­is­trates Court yes­ter­day where he faced charges of stalk­ing, wil­ful dam­age and breach­ing a court or­der.

The for­mer Mon­gol was ac­cused of ar­rived at the home on at least five oc­ca­sions in the last month were he al­legedly at­tempted to speak with his for­mer part­ner.

De­fence lawyer Camp­bell McCal­lum said his client was not vi­o­lent.

“The only real threat of vi­o­lence was when he al­legedly in­vited the com­plainant’s part­ner for a fight,” he said.

But the bikie al­legedly moved the CCTV cam­eras at his ex-wife’s home in or­der to avoid be­ing de­tected on the premises.

The vis­its be­gan in early Septem­ber and con­tin­ued un­til po­lice ar­rested the man on Wed­nes­day.

“It was an am­i­ca­ble split.” The man was granted bail and the mat­ter will re­turn to court on De­cem­ber 1.
