Dear Ms Sturgeon,
THE HOLLIE GREIG CASE
I was very pleased to hear of your commitment to be more accessible. This is a welcome change for the leadership of the SNP.
I have always been willing to cooperate fully with the Scottish government in examining adequately the Hollie Greig case, which the state has accepted as a case of multiple rape of a disabled girl. Your outgoing predecessor, through Mr David Woods, wrote to me on 18th October 2013 undertaking to contact me over queries about the Hollie Greig case. Over twelve months have passed, and I am still waiting.
You may well be aware that, thanks to Mr MacAskill, Kathleen Harper at the Crown Office, and Ronnie Fraser at the Justice Directorate it has been established that former Lord Advocate and Unionist Elish Angiolini has lied about her involvement in Hollie’s case, both in a document dated 4 December 2009 from the Crown Office that has been placed before the courst at my trial and also in her complaint to the Press Complaints Commission about an article in The Firm magazine.
In the case of the Crown Office letter, it must be understood just how grave it is for a Lord Advocate to lie to the mother of a multiple rape abuse victim. I feel sure that many SNP supporters will be at a loss to understand why Mr Salmond and Mr MacAskill, in particular, were prepared to twice break the law in order to protect a political adversary.
Thanks to the efforts of many, including Graeme Pearson MSP, some prospect of progress towards proper inquiries into historical sexual abuse cases can now be considered.
As a nominee for the Nobel Peace Prise for my efforts to protect Scottish children and the disabled, in the face of unrelenting persecution by the so-called Scottish justice system, I trust that a fresh start can be made with your appointment as First Minister.
I am not very interested in the injustices I have suffered, but in justice for and the protection of Scotland’s most defenceless citizens. Please interpret this as a gesture of goodwill and positivity.
I would like to meet you in an effort to move this horrifying issue into focus, in the interests of the people of Scotland. I look forward to your response.
