Police arrest former HSU boss

THE FORMER national president of the Health Services Union, Michael Williamson, was arrested by New South Wales Police this morning.

While police did not name Mr Williamson in a statement released, he was seen entering the police station not long before the arrest announcement was made.

It is understood Mr Williamson was arrested in relation to Strike Force Carnarvon, a long-running investigation by state police into the HSU scandal.

The police statement said a 59-year-old man was arrested by the fraud and cyber crime squad at Maroubra Police Station at 7.45am.

It said detectives anticipated charging him with numerous offences, including hindering investigations, recruiting a person to engage in criminal activity and an "officer of an organisation publishing false statements".
