Scot-Govt to ban jury trials in Scotland: Alex Salmond was found NOT GUILTY of sex-smear charges by a JURY

Commenting on the Scot-Govt’s statement today to ban jury trials in Scotland:
 +
 +
Mark R. Whittet, (LLB, BA) Leader of Scotland’s Independence Referendum Party – the only other major political party committed to Scottish Independence – said:
 +
“Justice cannot be compromised – and this Scot-Govt plan to ban jury trials in Scotland’s courts is an full-frontal attack on justice, which must be seen to be done.
 +
“By all means, extend – on a temporary basis – deadlines for starting criminal trials until the virus quarantine is lifted.
 +
“But the right to a jury trial is a vital pillar of justice and democracy – as we saw only last week when former SNP leader Alex Salmond was found not guilty of all the sex-smear charges by THE JURY.
“This jury was made up of ordinary people  and is – quite rightly – entirely independent from the judge and the prosecution.
 +
“Given some of the IN-credible and UN-reliable evidence which has come to light since Salmond was found innocent, the thought of a single-judge alone being able to unilaterally declare a ‘guilty verdict’ should send shivers down the spine of every Scottish democrat.”

THE TRUTH: Independent media reports from the Alex Salmond sex-smear trial reveal here what the ‘mainstream’ media kept from the public

By CRAIG MURRAY

A number of very ambitious people within the SNP  took advantage of Alex Salmond to propel political careers, and then turned upon him after he no longer had power. This happened once it became clear it was the will of the new SNP hierarchy that Alex Salmond be taken out of the political scene for good.

Scotland’s Independence Referendum Party

The primary goal – and number one objective in the constitution of Scotland’s Independence Referendum Party –  is to achieve political Independence for Scotland.

We aim to do so by helping to bring about a new/ second Scottish Independence Referendum in light of the entirely-changed political and constitutional landscape following the UK Brexit vote.

We shall do this by providing a meaningful, valid, SECOND choice/ chance to vote for Independence-supporting MSPs in elections to the next Scottish Parliament; ie SNP party members/ voters can vote ‘first’ choice for SNP on the ballot paper, and then vote ‘second’ choice for Scotland’s Independence Referendum Party on the ballot paper.

This gives two choices/ chances/ votes in favour of Scotland’s Independence (instead of the present 1/ SNP – and reduces the ‘stray’/ use-less ‘second’ vote going to any other British Unionist party.

Despite the use of the word ‘Scottish’ in front of their names, the Liberals, Tories and Labour are all single, British Unionist parties and are all controlled from, and based in, their London head offices.

Scotland’s Independence Referendum Party is not competing with the SNP; rather, we want to work in a progressive alliance with them and all other groups that support Independence for Scotland.
