Former HSU boss arrested in Sydney

Former HSU boss arrested in Sydney

The former head of the Health Services Union East Branch, Michael Williamson, has been arrested in Sydney this morning.

Police say he has been arrested in connection with a number of offences related to hindering investigations

They include recruiting a person to engage in criminal activity, and being an officer of an organisation publishing false statements.

Little has been heard of Mr Williamson since his resignation as national president of the HSU via text message in July – he had already been suspended for a number of months over alleged involvement in fraud within the Union.
