The Times reports:
Police have charged a close ally of Tommy Sheridan with perjury, it was confirmed today.
Rosemary Byrne, 59, was arrested and charged on Tuesday by officers from Lothian and Borders Police investigating allegations of perjury during Mr Sheridan’s libel trial against the News of the World in 2006.
During the trial, at which Mr Sheridan represented himself after sacking his legal team, five members of the SSP gave evidence that Mr Sheridan had admitted visiting a swingers’ club in Manchester – an accusation he strongly denied. Ms Byrne endorsed his denial, telling the court that no such admission had been made
Who would have thought it.
