It is alleged the man provided false credit card details to purchase car repairs at a Noranda business on January 30 and failed to pay for his meal and drinks at Elmar’s In The Valley, in Henley Brook.

Mr Phun pleaded not guilty to a 2017 charge of demanding property by written threats. He did not enter pleas in relation to the other charges.

He will next appear in court on May 23.

Lois Clover Loder (44), who is accused of being with him at the restaurant, was arrested on Sunday, April 22 and charged by Major Fraud Squad officers with eight offences including using a false credit card to buy alcohol in Duncraig on February 16 and not paying for food and drinks at a Henley Brook restaurant on April 7.

Ms Loder has pleaded guilty to a number of outstanding charges from 2017, including possession of stolen property, breaching of bail, gains benefit by fraud and possession of methamphetamine.

She was granted bail yesterday and banned from contact with the man she is alleged to have dined with.

Ms Loder started a Go Fund Me page asking the people of Perth to help the pair pay for their legal fees.

The page raised $10.

Ms Loder will reappear in court on Thursday.
