A seventh suspect has been charged over Salim Mehajer's allegedly staged car crash last year.

Investigators confirmed on Wednesday that they arrested a 27-year-old man from Greystanes, western Sydney, in early February in connection with last year's incident.

The man was charged with conspiracy to cheat and defraud and was granted bail on strict conditions, and is set to appear in Burwood Local Court on Wednesday.
