Sacked cop court saga

- Crime

VIC­TO­RIA Po­lice has taken its bat­tle to sack a mem­ber in­volved in the no­to­ri­ous Sun­shine stubby-holder saga all the way to the Supreme Court.

The force sacked Sergeant Calum McCann over the af­fair but he was re­in­stated by the Po­lice Ap­peals Board, which said he should be dis­ci­plined.

Sgt McCann was the inau­gu­ral pres­i­dent of the Sun­shine po­lice so­cial club.

He helped or­gan­ise the de­sign and de­liv­ery of the hold­ers, which fea­tured a pic­ture of a “mud­fish” — a deroga­tory term for the area’s African com­mu­nity.
