Salmond won his court case against the Scottish Government.

Report akabula January 8, 2019 4:51 PM GMT
The Scottish government has admitted acting unlawfully while investigating sexual harassment claims against Alex Salmond.

Allegations against the former first minister, which he denies, were made to the Scottish government a year ago.

The government has now admitted it breached its own guidelines by appointing an investigating officer who had "prior involvement" in the case.
As a result, it conceded defeat in its legal fight with Mr Salmond.

Mr Salmond's case focused entirely on the fairness of the government's procedures and will have no bearing on a separate police inquiry into the allegations, which is still ongoing.



Relations between him and wee Jimmy must be strained to say the least. I also found it strange that this was allowed to proceed whilst a criminal investigation was ongoing.

Hotting up with Salmond and his supporters having a pop at Sturgeon.
She had 3 secret meetings with Salmond along with 2 telephone conversations whilst he was suspended.
(Guess who revealed that) Struggling to save face in Holyrood with calls for her to be cited for breaking the ministerial code.
Tories split over Brexit and their lkeader, Labour split over Brexit and their leader and now the SNP have a split over leadership problems. SF also refusing to sit in Stormont. I think the Welsh assembly is okay though. Happy

Am I also correct in saying you need to be earning over £29K to pay slightly more tax and if you earn less than that you pay less tax than the rest of the UK?

Scottish reporter saying Sturgeon may have mislead parliament on when she first learned of allegations.
Insider said she was aware before she met Salmond.
BTW hopefully the SP will force her to say what she discussed with Salmond in the 3 meets and 2 phone calls.
She's between a rock and a hard place. Admits she knew - she's finished. Denies it and Salmond says different - she's finished.
