Melissa Caddick’s DJ husband has been hit with a restraining order to protect investigators probing his wife’s mysterious disappearance.
Police filed the application for the apprehended violence order on Tuesday evening on behalf of Isabella Allen – the 28-year-old woman at the helm of ASIC investigation into Anthony Koletti’s fraudster wife.
Caddick, 49, was wanted by police after she skipped town in November 2020 with $30million of her clients’ life-savings, until she was declared dead four months later when her decaying foot drifted ashore 400km south of her home in Sydney.
Mr Koletti, 39, says he received a warning by police in August last year after he sent Ms Allen four texts last year requesting that she return a computer server seized by regulators – but claims he hasn’t contacted her since.
‘I have no idea why they would be taking an AVO out, I guess it’s ASIC just throwing their weight around to try and make me look like some kind of villain,’ he told The Australian.

‘They’re villainising my wife and now they villainising me, that’s what this world’s come to. It’s just ridiculous.’
Mr Koletti was also adamant that he hadn’t been in contact with anyone from ASIC for months.
‘I haven’t contacted them in, my god like, at least six months ago, maybe eight months ago. It’s been ages. It’s just ridiculous,’ he said.
There are no conditions listed on the apprehended violence order, but police will apply for conditions before the matter appears in the Sydney Downing Centre Local Court on February 23.
AVO conditions can stop defendants from approaching or contacting the protected person and being within a certain distance of their home or workplace.
