The Scottish Conservatives have accused the Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon of breaching the ministerial code up to 38 times. This news comes before the Lord Advocate faces a grilling from the inquiry today as well as the legal advice being published today.
The SNP leader will give evidence tomorrow to the Holyrood committee. On Friday last week, Mr Salmond stated that senior SNP figures conspired to try to force him out of public life over harassment claims. He also took fire at the Crown Office, led by James Wolffe QC, as he slammed the forced the redaction of sections of his written evidence to the committee.
However, UNN’s Oliver Down now understands that a Conservative dossier highlights dozens of instances, where they say, Ms Sturgeon appears to have broken the ministerial code. Scottish Tory leader Douglas Ross has said: ‘This dossier shows all the evidence of SNP cover ups, dreadful mistakes and terrible lapses of judgement’.
A spokesperson for the Scottish Tories has criticised the timing of Sturgeon’s appearance, they said: ‘The timing of this appearance is certainly very convenient for Nicola Sturgeon. During Alex Salmond’s evidence last week, the SNP MSPs on the committee embarrassed themselves by trying to run out the clock. It was a hopeless filibuster attempt that failed. Now they’re clearly trying to give their boss a helping hand by limiting when and how long she appears before the committee’.
They also went on to say: ‘Nicola Sturgeon stands accused of breaking the Ministerial Code up to 38 times. The First Minister and her inner circle are facing 14 separate resignation matters. The weight of evidence is overwhelming – and this is only what we know about. So much more continues to be hidden by the SNP’.
