Earlier this month, 17 people were arrested – including John’s two brothers and one of his sons – across three countries as part of Operation Veyda.

Kyle’s business partner Ben Scott and his former flatmate Nasser Elkordi also had their houses raided by the Australian Federal Police.

Ben, 38, and Sandilands are investors in the eight-part television series, Meet the Hockers, which premiered in May this year.

Ben, Nasser and John, whose Dover Heights home was also raided, have not been charged over the raids.

‘I’m gonna sit (in the café) today like a 90-year-old man when all his friends have died,’ he offered.
