Asked by: Russell Findlay, West Scotland, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party
Date lodged: 8 October 2021
To ask the Scottish Government what progress has been made on the appointment of a judicial office holder to preside over the public inquiry into the malicious prosecutions concerning Rangers FC.
Current status: Answered by Keith Brown on 14 October 2021
In February 2021, the Scottish Parliament debated the subject of an inquiry into the malicious prosecutions involving individuals associated with Rangers FC. Parliament voted in favour of a judge-led inquiry and the Scottish Government is committed to this course of action. The First Minister re-iterated this position at FMQs on 17 June 2021. As the First Minister explained on 17 June, the exact form of inquiry will be determined at the point all legal proceedings in relation to the cases are concluded.
