Can He Get a Witness?

Will the Tommy Sheridan litigation saga ever end? Answer – not if the local polis have anything to do with it.

Lothian and Borders Police…confirmed it would be investigating whether perjury was committed during the trial. Officers stepped up their inquiries last month by questioning staff at the Cupids swingers’ club.

The Sunday Herald understands staff told police they were offered cash if they refused to co-operate with the criminal investigation.

A source close to the inquiry said a “third party”, whose identity is thought to be known to the police, approached staff with a view to persuading them to keep quiet.

A spokesman for Lothian and Borders said: “Inquiries are still ongoing.”

Oh what a wicked web we weave…
