I don't really like the man, but he has my sympathy. To be smeared in such a way by anonymous complaints for which the onus is now on him to prove his innocence, and even if he can -his word against theirs - a cloud always hangs forever, it must be an awful nightmare and can today, happen to anyone.

We do not know how long the accusations have been investigated for or when the complaints were first made //which arose from an internal Scottish Government inquiry//
Also, perhaps the 'victims' have only just felt they are able to talk about it.
Does it matter when the assaults happened?
Has there been a time limit on other assaults?
Alleged assaults
Will he be seeking out Cliff’s lawyer I wonder :-)

Agree totally Khandro. Alleged offences from 2013 - what took them so long to speak out? Something doesn't smell right.
maggie you don't know that they didn't speak out before.
I can't stand the man, but this sounds decidedly fishy to me.
Unless you've been sexually abused you don't know the mindset of the victim (alleged)
Salmond is totally the last person I would want to be defending but this has to stop.

There is an old allegation, what has happened to innocent until 'proven' guilty?

Yet again we see trial by media. So wrong.

Snigger.
Zacs...snigger in private!!
Soz.
Haha! Snigger on ...
I've been intrigued by the wording used......

Let's hope that the Scots make a better job of investigating accusations of this nature than we have this side of the border.
I'm amazed the BBC haven't scrambled a 'copter.
To what end ZM?
Mr Salmond is said to be suing the Scottish government because he believes that he has been prevented from answering the accusations because of defects in the procedures.

It's an irony that a man who was once head of the government, now potentially finds himself in court against it.
maggiebee - // To what end ZM? //

I would suggest, to the same end as last time, to behave like a bottom-feeding tabloid, keen on dragging its international reputation through the sewer in order to titillate its viewing public, instead of what it is supposed to be - a publicly funded news organisation with an international reputation for honesty and fairness.
That makes sense AH. Used to respect the BBC but....
I was merely making a satirical dig, maggie.
