'Shameful' ex-RSL boss referred to police

Gladys Berejiklian says the NSW government will act on recommendations from a report into NSW RSL.

The future of NSW RSL is set to be revealed following last year's public inquiry into the organisation's misuse of funds.

The inquiry was set up under the Charitable Fundraising Act by the NSW government after the organisation's former president Don Rowe was accused of, and later admitted to, using its funds for private expenditure.

Public hearings led by Patricia Bergin SC in September and October heard from Mr Rowe and dozens of other RSL members and legal advisers.

Ms Bergin handed down her findings to NSW Better Regulation Minister Matthew Kean two weeks ago and the state government will address the media on Monday morning.

Minister for Veterans Affairs David Elliott and RSL NSW President James Brown will also make statements.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has previously said she will deal with any recommendations made.
