CFMEU wants Vic Police phone intercepts

AAP logoAAP 17/10/2016

Lawyers acting for CFMEU bosses John Setka and Shaun Reardon want access to Victoria Police telephone intercepts in their fight against blackmail charges.

The pair have been accused of blackmailing two Boral executives, to try to cause a loss to construction giant Grocon.

Their lawyers were handed 1315 documents from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission in the Melbourne Magistrates' Court on Monday, but they are also chasing Victoria Police telephone intercepts.

The pair allegedly blackmailed Boral executives Paul Dalton and Peter Head in April 2013.

Magistrate Kay Robertson adjourned the telephone intercepts matter until October 27.

Setka and Reardon are due to appear in court for a contested committal hearing from November 2, with evidence expected to last more than two weeks.
