Our long-time friend and colleague Andy Wightman is being sued for alleged defamation.
His pursuer is claiming astronomical damages of £750,000 (plus 8% annual interest). If Andy loses the case and these damages are awarded in full, he will have to declare bankruptcy and thus stand down as a Member of the Scottish Parliament.
For someone of such integrity, who has campaigned for so long against the abuse of power, this would be the epitome of injustice. We cannot stand by and watch this happen.
Andy is crowdfunding to raise the £120,000 required to cover his judicial costs.
