Irish Examiner - - World -

Ni­cola Stur­geon has con­firmed that she will re­fer her­self to the in­de­pen­dent panel that over­sees gov­ern­ment ethics over her meet­ings with Alex Salmond.

The Scot­tish First Min­is­ter said that she met Mr Salmond on three oc­ca­sions and had spo­ken to him on the phone twice after sex­ual harass­ment al­le­ga­tions had been made by two women against him in Jan­uary 2018.

On Tues­day, the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment’s han­dling of the al­le­ga­tions against for­mer first min­is­ter Mr Salmond was ruled un­law­ful by Scot­land’s high­est civil court.

Ni­cola Stur­geon to re­fer her­self to Scot­tish ethics watch­dog.
