Australian police arrest former westpac clerk

Australian police said they charged a former currency clerk of Westpac Banking Corp WSTPS with misappropriating 8300 dlrs in July in an alleged foreignexchange fraud

A spokeswoman for the New South Wales Corporate Affairs Commission CAC said the arrest was part of its investigation stemming from complaints from Westpac and Kleinwort Benson Australia Ltd

CAC and Westpac officials said they were working out how much money was involved but said press reports it was as much as five mln dlrs were probably exaggerated
