Foster arrested over Sensaslim
CONVICTED conman Peter Foster has been arrested on the Gold Coast over his alleged involvement with a controversial diet spray company.
Australia's consumer watchdog began legal action in July against Sensaslim Australia, Foster and other company officers over alleged misleading and deceptive conduct and false claims about the weight-loss spray.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission alleged Foster's involvement in the Sensaslim business, which is now in liquidation, was not disclosed.
It also alleges false claims were made about Sensaslim spray being the subject of a large worldwide clinical trial, when no such trial was conducted.
The action continues in the Federal Court.
Police said a 49-year-old Gold Coast man had been arrested today on a warrant issued by the Federal Court.
Members of the South Eastern Region Serious and Violent Crime Squad, working with members of other federal agencies, were involved in the arrest.
The man was expected to appear before the court later on Friday, police said.
