The former sergeant-at-arms of a Brisbane Bandidos bikie gang is accused by police of trying to film a woman while she was using the bathroom, a court has been told.
Zivko Stojakovic was ordered to go straight to a rehabilitation centre to await his next court date after being granted bail on Monday over what a Supreme Court judge called “disturbing” allegations.
Mr Stojakovic, who police claim has defected to the Comanchero, has been charged with observations in breach of privacy and consorting with recognised offenders.
He is also facing unrelated charges of assault occasioning bodily harm, affray and possessing dangerous drugs.
Police allege Mr Stojakovic, 35, was drunk at a trendy Brisbane restaurant on April 21 when the observations offence occurred.
Brisbane Supreme Court was told he allegedly attempted to record a woman while she was using the toilet.
Justice David Boddice said Mr Stojakovic appeared to have longstanding issues with alcohol and was now seeking to address his addictions.
His parents had offered to help fund his stay in a rehab, the court was told.
Mr Stojakovic’s charges of assault and affray relate to an alleged altercation at a Fortitude Valley bar just days before being brought back into custody.
Justice Boddice noted he was on bail at the time of the alleged illegal observations.
The court was told Mr Stojakovic had the support of his family, including his partner and parents.
“His parents are prepared to assist in funding what would be a substantial amount to allow him to undertake in-house rehabilitation,” Justice Boddice said.
Justice Boddice ultimately granted Mr Stojakovic bail, noting he would be going to an in-house rehabilitation centre for a minimum of six months.
