Convicted paedophile, former Lake Macquarie councillor and ex-Swansea MP Milton Orkopoulos has had his bail revoked after he was arrested for a second time for allegedly breaching a condition of his parole.
Police charged Orkopoulos on Wednesday with three counts of failing to comply with reporting conditions.
The 62-year-old was arrested at a home at Malabar, in Sydney's southeast, about 7am.
He faced Waverley Local Court later in the day, where Magistrate Michael Crompton revoked his bail.
He will face court via audio-visual link on Thursday.
Orkopoulos was released from jail at the end of 2019 after more than 11 years in prison.
He was convicted in 2008 of 30 charges, including multiple counts of having sex with a male between 10 and 18, indecent assault, supplying prohibited drugs and possessing child pornography between 1995 and 2006.
He was charged last month with allegedly failing to comply with reporting conditions and pleaded not guilty.
Orkopoulos spent four years on Lake Macquarie City Council and served in NSW Parliament for Labor between 1999 and 2006, including time as a minister.
The State Parole Authority last month reserved a decision as to whether to revoke Orkopoulos' freedom.
The authority said in a statement on Wednesday it was "waiting for a breach report from Community Corrections before taking further action concerning Milton Orkopoulos".
