Sturgeon hits back at Salmond

The COVID Diaries – 302 4th March

Speaking at the inquiry into her government’s unlawful handling of harassment complaints against her predecessor Alex Salmond, Nicola Sturgeon has rejected most of his claims saying she had no reason to want to “get” Alex Salmond and dismissing claims of a plot against him as “absurd”.

Sturgeon apologised to the women who brought the complaints, who had been let down by a “very serious error”.
