The imprisoned businessman and the former deputy mayor, Salim Mehajer, launched a multi-million dollar claim against a Sydney property developer from his prison cell.
Mehajer, who was jailed for 11 months for electoral fraud in June, has written the 39-page claim from the Cooma prison, detailing why six former business partners owe him $ 72.5 million.
With a clean cursive handwriting, the 32-year-old admits that his document has an "unorthodox" format and apologizes for any "typographical error."
A prison guard has signed each page as his witness.
"Due to restricted access to computers, I have handwritten the affidavit attached to the one I am referring to for use in this procedure," Mehajer states in the affidavit.

Mehajer used a blue pen and a notebook (pictured) to file a claim against six former business partners related to her development of Skypoint Towers in Lidcombe, Sydney
The prison's handwritten document will be used as part of its ongoing battle in the Supreme Court of New South Wales over its controversial Skypoint Towers complex in Lidcombe, in western Sydney.
The recipients of two of their failed companies are selling apartments in the towers, which is now estimated at $ 20 million.
Mehajer's six business partners and lenders now also pursue the former deputy mayor of Auburn for $ 100 million in damages during development.
While Mehajer admits in his affidavit that he does not have a lawyer, he "firmly anticipates" that he will do so when the case is next in the Supreme Court.
I apologize in advance for the unorthodox format of this document, including any typographical errors.
The planning of Skypoint Towers began in 2012, three years before Mehajer became prominent with his $ 25 million "wedding of the century" to his ex-wife, Aysha Learmonth.
In 2012 he started buying parcels of land along John Street in Lidcombe for his development & # 39; Sky & # 39 ;.
Mehajer spent almost $ 13 million on the land he expected to become a $ 40 million profit, he says in the affidavit.
The document reveals that Mehajer's claim for $ 72.5 million is related to a gain of $ 40 million that he estimates he lost, as well as $ 30.5 million in damages
In the presentation, Mehajer affirms that the problems with Sky Towers arose for the first time when he looked for financing.
After signing a loan agreement for $ 60 million with an Australian fund, the entrepreneur claims that he was soon introduced to a new lawyer through a "friend".
Mehajer says his new law firm encouraged him to back down on his first agreement and instead accept a "better, safer, safer and more readily available" loan from a foreign lender.
The new agreement would see its potential benefit increase from $ 38 million to $ 42 million.
"I felt I had nothing to lose and I felt safe with my lawyer," he writes in the affidavit.

But Mehajer says that during the next few months, his new lenders used a "strategy" to "force me" by default to not pay … by not selling (units) and as a result not meeting the pre-sale target ".
Among the alleged tactics claimed in the affidavit was the employment of a real estate agent and the construction of a sales office on the Skypoint Towers site for $ 150,000.
Mehajer says that until then "the units in Sky were selling themselves", but when the new agents were used, the sales were exhausted.
The businessman claims that he soon launched an "investigation" and that when he and his employees called the agents to ask about Sky, they were wrongly told that the units had been sold.
"After further research, it was confirmed that the research unit did not actually sell, and is still available according to the list of available units," says Mehajer.
Mehajer has appeared in court regularly in recent years for a variety of different matters
Mehajer made headlines for the first time in 2015 for her extravagant multi-million dollar wedding with her ex-wife Aysha Learmonth (pictured)
He demanded a change back to his former real estate agent, who claims that he "immediately started acting" again.
Mehajer states that the lenders agreed to pay a debt that was already "paid," as part of "a solution designed to initiate a method to collapse the companies" into "voluntary administration."
The entrepreneur claims that despite growing tensions between them, his loan firm continued to transfer him "hundreds of thousands of dollars". regularly, what left him feeling safe.
That was until, in November 2016, the lenders did not pay a bill of $ 200,000 as previously agreed, leaving their companies in default.
In January of this year, Mehajer was arrested and charged with perverting the course of justice, after allegedly simulating a car accident on his way to a court in Sydney last year.

He was remanded in custody for three months before being released on bail in April, when a $ 200,000 guarantee was paid.
In June he was sentenced to 21 months in prison for electoral fraud, with a minimum of 11 months behind bars.
"I continue to work in the best interest of those legitimate creditors, and I trust that the court will see this as a complex matter," says the businessman imprisoned in the affidavit.
Daily Mail Australia has approached Mehajer for comments.
