Subject: Alex Salmond
Dear Mr Mundell,
You have described Alex Salmond`s decision to broadcast on RT as “appalling” and I have no doubt whatsoever that many people will wholeheartedly agree with you.
However, what are surely even more appalling are Mr Salmond`s breaches of sections 10.1 and 21.1 of the Freedom of Information Scotland Act, as ruled by former Commissioner Kevin Dunion on 26th May 2011, in respect of his attempt to disregard questions about his government`s misconduct over the alleged multiple rape of disabled Aberdeen girl Hollie Greig.
So that there can be no misunderstanding of the gravity of this, allow me to quote two headlines about this issue by respected legal magazine The Firm.
On the 3rd June 2011 it led with:- Exclusive:- Information Commissioner forces Government response to Hollie Greig Inquiries.
Then, on 11th July :- First Minister in missing records riddle over Hollie Greig abuse allegations.
I have spoken about this issue twice in the Houses of Parliament and
think it highly likely that those who would agree with your comments about RT would be even more appalled with Mr Salmond should they learn the truth about this episode.
Your comments would be of public interest on this matter, I`m sure.
