It would be “unforgivable” for the Scottish Government not to release the legal advice it received about its “catastrophic failure” when investigating claims of sexual harassment by Alex Salmond after being defeated in parliament, MSPs have said. The Scottish Government has repeatedly refused to waive

Mr. D’Elia claims that he acted under the instructions of US embassy personnel in Rome. However, it seems very unlikely that this plan could have taken place without The Chairman of Nations in Actions claims that what happened was “a really brilliant plan orchestrated by Obama with the help of Renzi.”

Police Scotland advised the Scottish Government not to launch investigations into potentially criminal allegations of harassment, warning staff were not trained to investigate or “engage with victims”.

Deputy Chief Constable Fiona Taylor also said the Government asked Police Scotland “a number of hypothetical questions” about its harassment policy that appeared to be about a “specific set of circumstances”.

An administration official told POLITICO that he was also motivated to step down after the Capitol Hill attack. Wolf had issued a statement the day after the attack urging Trump to condemn the violence. “Any appearance of inciting violence by an elected official goes against who we are as Americans

The communication with police occurred during the period the Scottish Government was drafting a complaints policy that included current and former ministers – prompting allegations from Scottish Labour it was “war-gaming” for action against Alex Salmond.

In written evidence to the Holyrood inquiry into the Government’s botched investigation of harassment claims against the former first minister, Ms Taylor said the force recommended referring complainants to support services rather than investigating the allegations.

Potential victims would then have been able to decide whether to report any allegations to the police.

After multiple women came forward in the wake of the MeToo movement in 2017 with concerns about Mr Salmond’s alleged behaviour, the Scottish Government instead launched an investigation that was subsequently found to be unlawful.

Mohamud Mohammed Hassan: Protesters March On Welsh Police Station Over Man's Death After Arrest

  Mohamud Mohammed Hassan: Protesters March On Welsh Police Station Over Man's Death After Arrest Hundreds of people marched on Cardiff Bay police station on Tuesday, demanding “justice” for the “deeply concerning” death of a man who died hours after being released from custody. Mohamud Mohammed Hassan was arrested on Friday evening after reports of a disturbance at his home but released the following morning without charge. He was found dead on Saturday evening. His family claim the previously fit and healthy 24-year-old was assaulted while in police custody.Police described his death as “sudden and unexplained” and say despite his injuries and death there were no indications of misconduct issues or excessive force use” by their officers.

MSPs have defeated the Scottish government in a vote calling on ministers to "halt" national assessments for five-year-old pupils. The assessments were introduced across Scotland last year, but some teachers and parents have criticised them. Ministers insist they are not high-stakes tests, but

Time will tell and we Don’t have much time left now before whatever Does happen actually So this idiot in his rooms of pyramids has a source of all sources..that tells him… Oh yes… It’s on… I do not know anything about the claim that people are making about retired Lieutenant General Michael Flynn.

The Court of Session in Edinburgh ruled the investigation was “tainted by apparent” bias due to prior communication between investigating officer Judith Mackinnon and two of the women who came forward, resulting in a £512,250 payout to Mr Salmond.

Scotland’s most senior civil servant, permanent secretary Leslie Evans, also had contact with complainants.

Asked about the police’s input in the Government’s updated harassment complaints policy, Ms Taylor said they advised on December 6 2017 that “where criminality was suspected, individuals should be directed to support and advocacy services, to enable them to make informed decisions about whether or not to report matters to the police”.

The Government continued to ask the police questions about the criminal justice process between December 2017 and August 2018, Ms Taylor added.

She wrote: “The hypothetical questions suggested more than one victim of potential criminality and as such, it was stressed that – without knowledge of the detail – any risk that a suspect might present could not be properly assessed or mitigated.

The police ( investigate ).lasted for a year and during the trial over 100 hours of (evidence).were heard. Turner’s (law).had all argued that he was not in the area at the time, but could not provide the necessary (prove). My.has instructed me not to discuss this case with reporters.

Of course, in each case this is claimed to have been an accident, and, of course, there is absolutely no way of showing this is true. We also have multiple eye witness accounts, mostly from election or postal workers, who claim that fraud was being engaged in and ballots were being wrongly discarded.

“It was highlighted that [Scottish Government] staff were not trained to undertake such investigations, or to engage with victims.

“No details of potential victims or perpetrators were provided by SG and, throughout the contact, Police Scotland encouraged SG to refer victims to appropriate support services.”

When Ms Evans was asked about involving the police in any complaints during a committee evidence session in August, she said: “We took advice from Police Scotland because we wanted to ensure that the procedure was appropriate and sympathetic, and that it was effective in terms of encouraging people to use it.”

She also told the Committee on the Scottish Government Handling of Harassment Complaints: “The police’s view, which we adhered to and which is reflected in the procedure, is that the process must be led by the victim – by the people who are bringing concerns or complaints.

“If they wish to go to the police, they are at liberty to do so at every stage in the operation.

“However, as our investigation… reached its conclusion, the Scottish Government decided – informed by legal advice – that three of the complaints should be referred to Police Scotland.”

Following the submission by Police Scotland, Scottish Labour interim leader and committee member Jackie Baillie said: “From the timeline provided by the Deputy Chief Constable it seems obvious that the Scottish Government was attempting to stress-test their procedure ahead of taking action against Mr Salmond by war-gaming what the Deputy Chief Constable refers to as ‘hypothetical questions’.

“It is also clear that the Scottish Government referred complaints to the police via the Crown Agent, against the wishes of the women involved, and despite the police encouraging the Government to refer complainants to support services as a first port of call.”
