18 February 2008 Aamer Anwar faces possible imprisonment for contempt of court because, in the words of Lord Carloway “He impugns the verdict of the jury”. At the same time, Tommy Sheridan, Rosemary Byrne, Jock Penman and Graham McIver have now been charged with perjury in relation to their evidence in Mr. Sheridan’s defamation case.
Can we therefore expect David Strang, Chief Constable of Lothian and Borders Police to be hauled before the Court of Session accused of contempt of court for “impugning” the verdict of the jury which found against News International?
