Interesting interview with one of the members of the panel which sat on the busting of Rangers Football Club, Gary Allan QC… It’s ahead of a Channel Four news piece tonight that could be very interesting.
The thing that strikes as most odd is the near professionalism with which he was harassed. Something quite beyond his own experience of dealing with criminals in his own court, he says.
Adds: A QC, 32 journalists, the owner of Raith Rovers Football Club and the publisher of Phil Mac Giolla Bhain’s book all threatened and intimidated… It’s both hasty and organised…
