Green says he strenuously denies the allegations.
The charges come as police push to use anti-bikie laws against professionals who knowingly help criminals.
The Courier Mail reports Detective Inspector Terry Lawrence, of Maxima gang squad as saying, “It could be lawyers, it could be accountants, it could be real estate agents.”
Green faces 15 years in jail if convicted.
