Activist Gary Burns, who lodged the extra complaint yesterday, is seeking $40,000 and a published apology from Mr Sunol.
He has also asked the board to refer the latest statements to the NSW Attorney-General.
‘‘When Mr Sunol is finally dealt with by me he will be laying spreadeagled on the pavement battered and bruised, figuratively-speaking, because I am no nancy boy,’’ Mr Burns said.
Mr Sunol repeated denials yesterday that he had vilified homosexuals.
‘‘What I’m saying is, the Mardi Gras is run by drug dealers and paedophiles, not all homosexuals [are drug dealers and paedophiles],’’ he said.
‘‘If they’d done that in Iran, if they’d done that in Iraq, they’d be murdered. I’m speaking out against it because the homo-nazis and femi-nazis are taking away our right to speak against them.’’
The case could be delayed because Mr Sunol is appealing to the NSW Supreme Court to have a 2006 Administrative Decisions Tribunal finding that he vilified homosexuals overturned.
Mr Burns said that the Supreme Court appeal was a stalling tactic.
