Melissa Caddick’s husband will contest a restraining order taken out to protect an investigator probing his conwoman wife’s mysterious disappearance.

Anthony Koletti represented himself when the matter was briefly mentioned on Wednesday at Sydney‘s Downing Centre Local Court. 

When asked by a magistrate if he accepted an apprehended violence order being put in place, Mr Koletti said: ‘I don’t, Your Honour’. 

Police filed the application for the AVO on February 8 on behalf of Isabella Allen, the 28-year-old woman at the helm of an ASIC investigation into Caddick.

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 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,’ previously 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 were no conditions listed on the apprehended violence order, but police indicated they would apply for conditions before the matter was listed in court on Wednesday.

AVO conditions can stop defendants from approaching or contacting the protected person and being within a certain distance of their home or workplace.

Mr Koletti has repeatedly claimed his wife is not a conwoman, despite the mountain of evidence stacked against her. 

Justice Brigitte Markovic ruled on November 22 that Caddick had provided unlicensed financial advice between 2012 and 2020 under the Maliver banner.  

The Australian Securities and Investments Commission has been trying to recover some of the live savings her 72 clients poured into the scam, which funded her lavish lifestyle.

Investors were scammed out of about $30million before ASIC cottoned onto the racket. 

Justice Brigitte Markovic ordered Maliver should be wound down, with what is left of the company to be divvied up among those who are owed money. 

The ruling also meant Mr Koletti would be booted out of his missing wife’s $6.2million home.

Justice Markovic ruled Caddick bought the property with investors’ money in 2014. 

Daily Mail Australia is not suggesting Mr Koletti is in any way responsible for Caddick’s fraudulent conduct or had any knowledge of it.  

Caddick’s family was told late last year her exotic cars, luxury properties and jewellery would be sold off to help repay her victims, many of whom were friends and relatives.

The AVO will be back in court on March 3.
