– Victoria Police Fraud Squad detectives have seized former Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s confidential personnel files, travel records and all documents relating to legal advice she gave 20 years ago, reports The Australian.
The report says Ms Gillard is a focus of the investigation surrounding former boyfriend Bruce Wilson, the former Australian Workers Union secretary.
Hundreds of documents were seized under the warrant police obtained in May, but have been kept in a sealed box at the Melbourne Magistrates Court.
Detective Sergeant Ross Mitchell yesterday applied to have the documents returned. Mr Wilson and Ms Gillard have denied wrongdoing. The case will return to court on October 15th.
