Anyone involved in Alex Salmond ‘conspiracy’ should be sacked, MSP says

Scotland’s former first minister Alex Salmond is due to appear before the Holyrood inquiry into the Scottish government’s unlawful investigation of sexual harassment claims made against him today.

Mr Salmond is expected to face questions about his claims that his successor Nicola Sturgeon misled parliament and breached the ministerial code over the botched investigation.

The current first minister has insisted there is “not a shred of evidence” that there was a conspiracy against Mr Salmond and she has denied lying to parliament amid growing political pressure.
