Sydney magistrate unimpressed by NSW Police application to suppress FriendlyJordies videos

NSW Police have asked a court to order YouTube comedian FriendlyJordies to take down videos about a case against his producer.

The producer, Kristo Langker, is accused of stalking former NSW deputy premier, John Barilaro, and has denied any wrongdoing.

Mr Langker was arrested at his Dulwich Hill home in June following an investigation by the state’s fixated person’s unit.

Jordan Shanks, aka FriendlyJordies, has published videos on his YouTube channel about the case, including one less than 24 hours before the matter was due in court on Wednesday.

In an application to the court, NSW Police sought orders forcing Mr Shanks to remove all material associated with the case and preventing him from publishing further material until it is finalised, expected to be after May 2022.

Police Prosecutor Amin Assaad described Mr Shanks as “a gift that keeps on giving” after his most recent video, which included details about the police application.

“As of 9am it had 248,000 views,” Sergeant Assaad told the Downing Centre Local Court.

“He is interfering in the administration of justice … he’s in a position to influence witnesses.”

Sergeant Assaad suggested Mr Shanks should be found in contempt of court and claimed the issues raised in the video were “not 100 per cent correct”.

But Barrister Philip Strickland SC, for Mr Shanks, said the application was too broad and appeared to be “fundamentally defective”.

He said Mr Shanks’s video involved criticism of the involvement of the fixated persons unit, similar to legitimate questions asked by “a whole range of people”, including politicians.

“This is an attempt under the guise of the Act to shut down criticism expressed in terms, no doubt, that are regarded as unfavourable, but it’s to shut down criticism,” Mr Strickland said.

He called for the application to be dismissed, describing it as “tantamount to an abuse of process”.

Magistrate Jacqueline Milledge said worse things were said about the judiciary every day.

“I’ve never seen an application like this before in this court,” she said.

Sergeant Assaad said Mr Shanks had 570,000 followers and was commenting about the strength of the prosecution brief.

“Isn’t this giving all of that oxygen?” the magistrate replied.

Sergeant Assaad insisted Mr Shanks was “leading the charge” and said the videos had the potential to influence witnesses.

“That’s a charge? God, it’s not even a walk through the park. It’s inane,” the magistrate replied.

Magistrate Milledge adjourned the application until next week.

She said police needed to be specific about what they rely on for both the contempt and suppression issues, rather than providing “a dump of everything that’s been said on a video”.

About Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

  3. Yehhhhhh .. These are all academy trained with a degree from Goulburn Police Training Univeresity and have no idea of policing in the real world. Cops of yesteryear were employed on ability not run off a conveyor belt costing each candidate around $40,000, keeping in mind there are near zero failures everybody passes. Look what we have out there protected the people of NSW, because we are not allowed to protect ourselves including from the Keystone Cops .. ED2

    Say no more, save that too many cops think they’re working for a police state. The cops are not what they used to be. They need an overhaul of leadership attitude, starting at the top.

  6. Maybe the mere ambition to become a cop, should automatically preclude anyone from becoming one..
    And those that are already there should remember the Fitzgerald inquiry, where the rats left the s(t)inking ship in droves
