Fair Trial - Complaint against John Scott QC.

Extract

One example, where you failed in your duty to disclose relevant matters to your client, and raise these matters with the court, is the recent contempt trial of Mr Craig Murray. The Society of Solicitor Advocates organised an online seminar on Sections 274 and 275 or the Criminal Procedure (Scotland) Act 1995 (CPSA 1995). The talk was given by Lady Dorrian and you hosted the seminar. It took place on the 30th of July 2020 over Zoom.

I attended the seminar, and it was obvious to me that you and some of the other solicitor advocates were friends with Lady Dorrian. My view is that Lady Dorrian was coaching those present on her interpretation of the law. She had a tutor to pupil type relationship with those attending. I asked two questions about the lawfulness of Lady Dorrian giving seminars to advocates and solicitor advocates but these were ignored. You failed to disclose this at the trial of Mr Murray, where Lady Dorrian was judging. This is fraud.

Fair Trial – Complaint against John Scott QC.

Extract

To: John Scott QC

From: Tom Muirhead of the Fair Trial Project (Registered Charity SCO48283).

Subject: Complaint: Solicitor Advocates are failing to disclose that Scotland’s judges lack independence and impartiality.

I am the Chief Executive Officer of the Fair Trial Project. We believe that no one in Scotland has ever had a fair trial. The primary reason for this is that Scotland’s judges lack independence and impartiality.

The complaint is that you have failed in a) your duty to your clients to inform them of this; and b) your duty to the court and the public to raise this issue.

The Fair Trial Project contends that your failure to disclose a) the lack of open justice created by the exclusion of the public from the courts during the coronavirus pandemic; and b) the lack of independent and impartial tribunals is criminal and civil fraud. The following papers on our web-site list and explain the matters that you are failing to disclose. Please see:

(1) ‘Why the Faculty of Advocates is a Criminal Organisation’ at https://fairtrialproject.org/why-the-faculty-of-advocates-is-a-criminal-organisation/.

(2) The unlawful exclusion of parts of the media and the public from the courts. https://fairtrialproject.org/open-justice/

(3) Judges unlawfully working outside of their judicial role at: ‘https://fairtrialproject.org/judges-unlawfully-working/’

(4) Complaint made against Lord Carloway at: https://fairtrialproject.org/complaint-against-lord-carloway/

(5) Scottish Judges lack of independence and impartiality due to conflicts of interest at: https://fairtrialproject.org/judges-with-a-conflict-of-interest/
