While rejecting the contempt of court charge, the Court did comment critically on Aamer Anwar’s statements, stating that they “expected better” of solicitors.

Lord Osborne said the statements from the lawyer “embody angry and petulant criticism of the outcome of the trial process ..”.

Not for the first time, Absolvitor asks when News International and Lothian and Borders Police will be hauled over the coals for their angry and petulant criticism of the outcome of the Tommy Sheridan defamation case?
