Our thanks to Bryn for this. The case against the two Scottish professional footballers was so weak that the Procurator Fiscal – Scotland’s equivalent of the CPS – declined to bring a prosecution. The judgement against the men was nothing more than a guess by the judge in a civil case brought by the woman, who had originally sought £500,000 compensation. The parallels with the Ched Evans case – who was eventually cleared of charges, after serving two and a half years of a prison sentence – are uncanny.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
