High-profile criminal lawyer Michael Bosscher was reportedly charged by the Australian Federal Police for allegedly trafficking 120 kilograms of cocaine hidden in a van carrying frozen chickens.

He appeared in Brisbane Magistrates Court late last week to face one count of trafficking in commercial quantities of controlled drugs.

Media reported the matter was adjourned to mid-May on Bosscher’s lawyer’s request so it could be joined with other related matters.


Bosscher was remanded into custody until then.

The criminal lawyer is reportedly facing a separate charge for his alleged involvement in a money laundering syndicate.

Bosscher was charged in October 2022 with conspiring to deal in the proceeds of crime.

Police arrested him and another man for allegedly laundering $4.5 million after they discovered $70,000 in cash in a Bardon location and a further $160,000 in cash from a safe in Helensvale.

That matter also remains before the court.

According to the Bosscher Lawyer’s Facebook page, Bosscher has appeared in criminal matters across Australia and overseas.

More to come.
