As Alex Salmond takes the hot seat in the Parliamentary Harassment Committee, Alex describes that there has been “a calculated and deliberate suppression of key evidence”.
This damning statement at the start of the hearing describes that his hands have been tied and his words censored.
As he raises his hand to say, “that I will, tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth”, Alex was honest enough to say that the truth given today will be through a censorship filter due to the redaction of his evidence from the Crown Office.
Alex went on to say that he fears imprisonment if he was to speak about the key evidence that was redacted before the hearing.
Is this right? Covering up the evidence so it can’t be spoken about at a hearing where all evidence should be heard?
