21 August 2015

Police officers attached to the Royal Commission’s Police Task Force have served a Notice to Appear in Court on a 36-year-old Jimboomba man for alleged offences committed as a union organiser.

He is due to appear in Brisbane Magistrate’s Court on Thursday, 15 October 2015.

It will be alleged in court that the man was involved in the intimidation of two public officials employed by Fair Work Building and Construction on a Sunshine Coast building site in July 2013. It will also be alleged in court that the man provided false declarations to the Fair Work Commission on three occasions when applying for an entry permit to access building sites as part of his role with the CFMEU.

The Police Task Force was established in several states and the ACT to support the work of the Royal Commission. The Queensland Task Force comprises Queensland Police and Australian Federal Police officers, and has responsibility for conducting criminal investigations in Queensland that relate to union corruption.
