Nicola Sturgeon Arrested

ER Editor: For those who don’t know globalist former Scottish PM Nicola Sturgeon, Mark Dolan for GB News (tweet below) gives us some highlights of her career and what sunk her, at least in the public eye. It’s clear from the range of comments on Twitter that she was and still is despised:

An interesting comment from this twitter user, who we feel is onto something. Ardern, Sturgeon, Sanna Marin of Finland voted out. Is Trudeau next? Macron even? Ardern simply stepped down this past January with no good reason given; now it’s ‘financial misconduct’ for Sturgeon, hardly a hanging offence and probably not new, and which comes at this particular juncture.


Nicola Sturgeon arrested in SNP finances inquiry

Former Scottish first minister being interviewed ‘as a suspect’ as part of investigation into claims party misspent £600,000 of donations


Nicola Sturgeon has been arrested and questioned by detectives investigating allegations of financial misconduct by the Scottish National party.

Sturgeon, who quit as first minister and SNP leader in March, is the third person to be arrested as part of Operation Branchform, the Police Scotland investigation into allegations that the party misspent more than £600,000 in donations for an independence campaign.

The force said that Police Scotland detectives were interviewing Sturgeon “as a suspect”.

A spokesperson for Sturgeon said she had met the police by arrangement, in the knowledge that she would be arrested and interviewed.

“Nicola Sturgeon has today, Sunday 11 June, by arrangement with Police Scotland, attended an interview where she was to be arrested and questioned in relation to Operation Branchform,” the spokesperson said. “Nicola has consistently said she would cooperate with the investigation if asked, and continues to do so.”

Her husband, Peter Murrell, the former chief executive of the SNP, was arrested at their home in Uddingston near Glasgow on 5 April after plainclothes officers arrived without warning. He was interviewed under caution for nearly 12 hours before being released without charge.

The police searched their home and back garden, and also the SNP’s headquarters, under warrant, taking out boxes of documents and computers. A luxury motorhome parked outside Murrell’s mother’s house in Fife was also seized and impounded by police, as part of their investigation.

Colin Beattie MSP, then the party’s treasurer, was arrested and questioned as part of the same inquiry on 18 April and also released later without charge, pending further investigation.

In a statement issued at 2.28pm on Sunday, Police Scotland said:

“A 52-year-old woman has today, Sunday 11 June 2023, been arrested as a suspect in connection with the ongoing investigation into the funding and finances of the Scottish National party.

“The woman is in custody and is being questioned by Police Scotland detectives. A report will be sent to the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service.

“The matter is active for the purposes of the Contempt of Court Act 1981 and the public are therefore advised to exercise caution if discussing it on social media.

“As the investigation is ongoing we are unable to comment further.”

Sturgeon has repeatedly said she did not know of any wrongdoing with the SNP’s finances and has insisted that the £600,000 in donations it received for a future independence referendum were dealt with correctly.

Speaking to reporters at Holyrood in late April, Sturgeon also denied that the police inquiry had played a part in her decision to step down in February, after eight years as SNP leader and first minister.

Describing her husband’s arrest as “traumatic” and “very difficult”, she said: “I understand the view that some people might have, that I knew this was all about to unfold and that’s why I walked away. Nothing could be further from the truth. I could not have anticipated in my worst nightmares what would have unfolded over the past few weeks.”

Speaking earlier on Sunday morning on BBC One’s Sunday with Laura Kuenssberg, Humza Yousaf, Sturgeon’s successor as first minister and SNP leader, said he could not comment on the police inquiry. “I understand why you ask the question, [but] as first minister I’ve got a really important duty not to be seen to prejudice or interfere in the live police investigation,” he said.

Opposition leaders and an SNP MP, Angus MacNeil, the MP for Na h-Eileanan an Iar, said Yousaf should now follow previous precedent by suspending Sturgeon from the party. Yousaf refused to suspend Murrell and Beattie after they were arrested, on the grounds that neither had been charged or convicted.




The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
