Michael Williamson’s life is going from bad to worse as his corruption case progresses through the courts.
Now they are unpacking his mistresses life.
The long-time mistress of disgraced Health Services Union boss Michael Williamson is the target of new court action launched by the union to recover $2.4 million of misappropriated funds.
Proceedings began in the NSW Supreme Court on Tuesday to recoup the money from the union’s former procurement officer Cheryl Rose McMillan and her close friend Alf Downing, whose company supplied union paraphernalia.
The action comes after the union’s former head, the ex-ALP national president Williamson, gave a formal undertaking to help recover money from others, including his former lover, Ms McMillan.
”We gave an undertaking to the members that we would pursue any moneys that had been misappropriated and return them to the union,” NSW HSU secretary Gerard Hayes said of the court action. ”This is another step in that process.”
