Former CFMEU boss David Hanna will fight allegations he corruptly received free building supplies and services from two Mirvac executives during the construction of a Brisbane house, his lawyer says.
Hanna, Mathew McAllum and Adam Moore were last month charged with secret commission offences arising from the Royal Commission into Trade Union Governance and Corruption.
It is alleged McAllum, 41, and Moore, 53, provided free supplies and services to Hanna, 52, in order to gain his favour including electrical fittings, bricklaying, plumbing, air conditioning, painting, tiling and interior design.
The trades were allegedly done between December 2012 and November 2013 during the construction of a luxury property in Brisbane.
Hanna is also charged with fraud for allegedly dishonestly receiving $4250 from Australian insurance company Youi between November 28 and December 2 in 2015.
None of the men were in Brisbane Magistrates Court for their first appearance on Wednesday but their lawyers said they would fight the allegations.
“Mr Hanna will be defending the charges,” solicitor Terry Fisher said.
The case was adjourned to February 20.
