John Barilaro, who resigned as Deputy Premier of NSW on the 4th of October 2021 and denied under oath at the NSW ICAC on the 25th of October that he had any “intimate personal relationships” (affairs) while he was a NSW MP, was reported in the media on Friday as now being in a relationship with his former staffer Jennifer Lugsdin. A leaked letter from the NSW ICAC, as per below, also shows ICAC received evidence that John Barilaro perjured himself 2 days after he was on the witness stand at ICAC.
I will put all the evidence that John Barilaro perjured himself in order below and you can decide for yourself. But keep two things in mind when looking at the evidence. Firstly, based on the letter below NSW ICAC have further evidence and secondly, based on what is below what I reported on the 26th of October is relevant as Gladys Berejiklian is well aware of John Barilaro’s rumoured affairs and she is likely to detail the alleged affairs in her submissions to the NSW ICAC which are due over the next few weeks.

Above is a huge crack in the dam wall that John Barilaro has protecting himself. It will be interesting what the NSW ICAC have to say in relation to the evidence John Barilaro gave from the witness stand when the NSW ICAC publish their report into their investigation into former NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian. It is not uncommon for ICAC reports to comment on the credibility of witnesses and witnesses who perjure themselves can face criminal charges.
