NSW Deputy Premier John Barilaro’s own police statement, which has been leaked to the media, has exposed Barilaro for lying to the media about secretly using a NSW Police anti-terrorism unit to harass and intimidate journalists Jordan Shanks and Kristo Langker who publish the YouTube channel Friendlyjordies. The evidence of NSW Deputy Premier John Barilaro’s lies and part of his police statement are in the videos below.
John Barilaro sued Jordan Shanks for defamation a couple of months ago for videos he published on the Friendlyjordies YouTube channel. A month or two later the police from the anti-terrorism division, Fixated Persons Investigation Unit, charged Shank’s employee Kristo Langker with stalking John Barilaro. Not long after John Barilaro denied on Sky News that he had any involvement in having the Fixated Persons Investigation Unit involved.
A couple of days ago John Barilaro’s police statement was leaked which proves John Barilaro has been lying to the media and that Barilaro has been dealing with the Fixated Persons Investigation Unit since December 2020 trying to get Jordan Shanks charged with an offence. Shanks hasn’t been charged although Shanks has recently said there is a warrant for his arrest but I suspect the police are too scarred to arrest Shanks now with all the lies being exposed.
Kristo Langker’s arrest
In June (14/6/21) I published an article titled: “Corrupt NSW Deputy Premier John Barilaro turns NSW Police into a Nazi goon squad to assault, harass and jail journalists”
Corrupt NSW Deputy Premier John Barilaro has lied to NSW Police to have a journalist Kristo Langker charged for stalking as the video evidence below proves which could end up being his undoing. The reason Barilaro wants Mr Langker jailed is that he and his boss, Jordan Shanks, have been posting videos on the Friendlyjordies YouTube page exposing criminal conduct by John Barilaro.
Kristo Langker has been charged with 2 counts of stalking. The first count of stalking relates to Kristo Langker trying to ask John Barilaro questions at a function, which is on video as per below, with many people around and Mr Barilaro is clearly not concerned for his safety. The second count of stalking relates to Kristo Langker trying to hand Mr Barilaro a legal document, which is also on video as per below, and looks like rock-solid evidence that Mr Barilaro polished up his police statement to make sure Kristo Langker was falsely charged by the police.

Sky News lies by NSW Deputy Premier John Barilaro
In the below interview by Tom Connell of Sky News Australia, NSW Deputy Premier John Barilaro angrily denies sending the Fixated Persons Investigation Unit to arrest Friendlyjordies producer Kristo Langker.
Below is the front page of NSW deputy premier John Barilaro’s police statement dated 21 April 2021 against Jordan Shanks who has not been charged at this point. Notice where it says “Place: FPIU” which means Fixated Persons Investigation Unit which John Barilaro denies in the above video of having any involvement with.
John Barilaro’s police statement was leaked to the SMH who reported on Thursday 26/8/21 in an article titled “John Barilaro reported Friendlyjordies to police six months before producer’s arrest”:
NSW Deputy Premier John Barilaro made a report to police last year that he was being harassed by content creator Jordan Shanks, after a series of videos were published on YouTube including two now at the centre of a defamation case.
In a statement made to the Fixated Persons Investigation Unit in April this year – seen by the Herald – Mr Barilaro detailed meeting with two detectives in his office on December 2, 2020, the day after Mr Shanks posted a video on his Friendlyjordies channel titled “I called John Barilaro…He Answered”.

On Friday (27/8/21) Friendlyjordies published the below video on YouTube which explains a lot of the background and puts the pieces of evidence together. The video also shows other parts of Barilaro’s police statement where he admits meeting with the Fixated Persons Investigation Unit regarding Jordan Shanks in December 2020.
The NSW Fixated Persons Investigation Unit are not just harassing journalists on behalf of politicians. I was harassed by the NSW Fixated Persons Investigation Unit after a complaint by the NSW Supreme Court’s Chief Justice Tom Bathurst in 2019. Mr Bathurst does not like the fact that I have published dozens, if not hundreds, of articles on this website about judicial corruption in the NSW Supreme Court although he has never said that to me. Instead Bathurst just makes up lies about me to tell the police the same as Barilaro has told lies to the police about Jordan Shanks and Kristo Langker.
On the 15th of May 2019 I also received a visit from the NSW Fixated Persons Investigation Unit and I published an article titled “NSW Police harass journalist Shane Dowling after another malicious complaint from Australian judges” which started off:
I received a harassing visit from the NSW police last Wednesday (15/5/19) and the complaint seems to have been made by staff at the NSW Supreme Court. Although the complaint could have come from the High Court of Australia given I had visited there a few days before to film a video and then I published an article titled “High Court of Australia’s Justice Keane and Justice Edelman caught protecting their bribe-taking and paedophile judicial mates.” (Click here to read the article)
The court staff would have told lies to the police and the court staff know it. They knew what they were doing when they made the complaint as they had done it before which led to a malicious police charge which was withdrawn by the CDPP. (Click here to read more)
One of the police who harassed me was Detective James Gatward as per the below business card. I published the business card on Twitter and Facebook a few weeks ago and some people said I shouldn’t as the police officer was only doing his job. No he wasn’t, he knows his role isn’t to harass journalists on behalf of corrupt judges who don’t like being exposed which I detailed in the article. (Click here to read more) The NSW Fixated Persons Investigation Unit is meant to focus on terrorists, not journalists which they are currently doing at least to some degree.
The harassment by the NSW Fixated Persons Investigation Unit on behalf of the NSW Supreme Court’s Chief Justice Tom Bathurst is a major reason I moved back to Queensland in 2019.
There needs to be a public inquiry into the NSW Fixated Persons Investigation Unit to determine how many journalists and other people they are harassing, falsely charging and jailing on behalf of NSW politicians, judges and others. The inquiry has to be conducted publicly and by someone from another state or preferably from another country.
Using police to hunt journalists makes Australia no better than the many countries we like to criticise for their treatment of journalists.
