Missing union documents could lead to prison time

CRIMINAL charges may be brought against the head of the CFMEU in Queensland and its former president over the destruction of documents sought by the royal commission into trade unions.

It was alleged last month in the royal commission that tonnes of paperwork were destroyed on the same day the inquiry issued a notice to the union to produce documents.

Destroying documents required by a royal commission is a criminal offence attracting a maximum jail term of two years.

Union secretary Michael Ravbar and former president David Hanna will be given the opportunity to respond to the recommendation by the counsel assisting the royal commission.

Charges have also been recommended against NSW CFMEU official Darren Greenfield and Sydney businessman George Alex over alleged corrupt payments.
