SCCRC Gerard Sinclair Flasher

Apparently Our Justice Minister thinks it is alright for SCCRCs Chief Executive to lift his kilt and Flash his Private Parts:

His opinion is here:

S3W-3572 - Bill Kidd (Glasgow) (SNP) (Date Lodged 21 August 2007) : To ask the Scottish Executive whether allegations about Gerard Sinclair, Chief Executive of the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission and temporary sheriff, that were published in The Sun on 14 August 2007 have been authenticated and, if so, whether it considers him to be a suitable person to continue to hold these posts.

Answered by Kenny MacAskill (4 September 2007): The reported incident occurred in 2001 at a private function attended by Mr Sinclair in a personal capacity while he was in private employment. Mr Sinclair has been Chief Executive of the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission since 1 July 2003 and has held an appointment as a part time sheriff since 1 July 2006. I believe he is an entirely suitable person to hold both posts.

Although Mr MacAskill has said the above i will now be writing to Law Society and complaining about his conduct. Their response will also be posted here.

Not only is Sinclair the Chief Executive of SCCRC He is also a part time Sheriff and sits on the Law Societies Criminal Justice Committee.

I will also be raising the Conflict Of Interest here in this Instance

Bill Kidd should have been asking if SCCRC knew of Sinclairs Flashing Incident when he was appointed Chief Executive of SCCRC.
