Call to shut up the SNP spin doctors and come clean with the outcome of review
By Bill Heaney
The Scottish Conservatives are today demanding that the SNP Government immediately publishes the full details of their ‘urgent review’ into how a double rapist was sent to a women’s prison.
Shadow community safety minister Russell Findlay made the call “in the interests of full transparency” after it emerged the Scottish Prison Service report into the Adam Graham case may not be published until next week.
In addition, the Scottish Government have not confirmed that they will publish the full review.
Russell Findlay MSP said: “This urgent review must be published immediately and in full by SNP ministers as soon as it is completed.

“The public have a right to know why and how a double rapist was ever allowed to set foot in a women’s prison.
“Nicola Sturgeon and Keith Brown can’t sit on this report and hope the controversy goes away.
“The SNP can’t delay this report for days or weeks until their political spin machine works out how to fix this mess.
“In the interests of full transparency – and lessons being learned – the justice secretary must publish this vital report immediately.”
