Vic union bosses continue blackmail fight

December 05, 2017

John Setka and fellow CFMEU official Shaun Reardon continue their fight against blackmail charges.

Two Victorian union officials accused of blackmailing construction company executives may never face trial if they succeed in getting the charges dismissed.

CFMEU state secretary John Setka and assistant secretary Shaun Reardon appeared in Melbourne Magistrates Court on Tuesday alongside their lawyers.

Barrister Robert Richter QC said the men have taken their case to the Court of Appeal after losing a Supreme Court bid in August to overturn the charges.
