The court heard Mr Loughnane is charged with separate family violence offences against Ms Hamka, which his lawyer, Sam Norton, described as “serious allegations of violence”.

Mr Norton applied for those charges to be suppressed, but the request was denied.

Mr Loughnane did not apply for bail and is due back in court in December.
