FORMER SCOTTISH FIRST MINISTER ALEX SALMOND IN COURT ON SEXUAL HARASSMENT AND RAPE CHARGES

Alex Salmond Becomes Leader of New Scottish Pro-Independence Party

Salmond is accused of attempting to rape a woman at Bute House, the official residence of the first minister of Scotland, during the independence referendum campaign. Court papers allege he placed her legs over his, repeatedly kissed her face and neck, groped her then blocked her path.

He is then alleged to have pinned her against a wall, pulled at her clothes and stripped himself naked before trying to rape her on a bed. The former MP and MSP is also accused of sexually assaulting a woman with intent to rape in December 2013.

He is alleged to have forced a woman to lie on his bed at Bute House, lay on top of her, groped her, struggled with her and pulled up her dress with intent to rape her.

Both incidents were said to have taken place between the date of the Edinburgh Agreement in 2012 and the day of the independence vote in September 2014.

Overall, all 14 charges span from June 29 2008 to November 11 2014 – two months after he stepped down as first minister and SNP leader.
