Robert Williams seeks to injunct Essendon home being auctioned

The Essendon home that belonged to the late drug lord George Williams is being sold by the ATO after it was seized earlier this year.

The property was being lived in by his daughter in law Roberta Williams after he left the home to his granddaughter Dhakota.

The home, bereft of any furniture, has a reserve of $750,000 for its December 15 auction.

It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and sits on an 235 sqm Primrose Street parcel.

In 2015 it was the target of failed arson attacks.

Back in 2009 Carl Williams had a $570,000 tax debt wiped by the Victorian Police as part of a deal helping them with information on a number of murders.

The debt was reinstated by the government a year later when Carl Williams, Roberta's husband, was murdered in prison.

The ATO was made mortgagee of the home in a deal that avoided a forced sale to cover the debt.

Earlier this year Roberta Williams attempted to gain ownership of the home, although failed, as the Supreme Court ruled she had no claim to the house.
