The court case is well on its way with Alex employing the best and possibly the most expensive QC in the business defending him to the hilt. He got half a million from the SNP due to the SNP's incompetence and another pile of cash to help him from his crowd funding campaign, so I guess he can afford it.
The accusers are of course being put through the mill and this I guess is fair enough. This is the recognised way to get to the truth of the matter and their motives will be called into question.
I have just noticed though that Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh, ex SNP politician is giving our Alex a character reference. This is the woman who lost her seat at the same time as Alex and went on to join him on his Russian TV show.
This is the same woman who got a character reference from no other than John Bercow when she ended up in court for professional misconduct. She and her partner in a no longer practising law firm, were convicted of mishandling trust funds and were fined £3,000. There were no proper accounts held for this fund from which, contrary to the rules of the fund, they borrowed money.
Is this someone who should also be put through the mill and her veracity called into question due to her previous conviction.
