After a previous case was ballsed up by the corrupt Glasgow PF office as they didn't give the defence " full disclosure", I'm sure that was an honest mistake ( aye right!) they have gone even further now and the scum have walked free and they won't be prosecuted because wait for it...... the PF have lost, yes..lost the evidence!


Don't anyone ever try to say they aren't corrupt because it is obvious they are! All posters that have social media/twitter must demand that Humza makes a statement on this and that heads should roll for this and if not then why not.? We also need to contact our MP's & local MSP to demand they write t him to make a statement as this cannot be allowed to be filed under no further action. We as a support must demand action.

Celtic fans accused of taunting Rangers rivals with blow-up sex dolls walk free after evidence is LOST


We can reveal the case is dead in the water because the Crown Office lost video and photo productions ahead of a hearing last week
THE Old Firm hanging sex dolls trial was axed after prosecutors lost evidence, we can reveal.


Nine Celtic fans accused of taunting Rangers rivals by hanging blow-up sex dolls walked free after prosecutors lost the evidence.

The suspects were due to stand trial after two inflatable dummies clad in a Gers scarf and Orange Order sash were strung up in a Parkhead stand at an Old Firm clash.

But we can reveal the case is dead in the water because the Crown Office lost video and photo productions ahead of a hearing last week.

A legal insider said of the shocking blunder — which comes amid intense scrutiny of fans’ behaviour: “It’s down to the maladministration and incompetence of the Crown. Essentially they destroyed video evidence and the photographic evidence to a certain extent.”

The bungle — blasted by politicians and a legal expert — could prove expensive as legal aid for the nine has cost the taxpayer £3,650 alone before other fees are taken into account.

“Then there’s the cost of defence and prosecution work carried out in the background.

“It could end up costing a million quid quite easily.”

Old Firm fans united to condemn the effigy stunt during Celtic’s 5-1 Premiership home win over Rangers in September 2016.

The dolls had their hands bound and were suspended from the Jock Stein stand next to a banner that read: “This is it Bhoys, this is war”.
It came on World Suicide Prevention Day and shortly after ex-Rangers hero Kris Boyd, 35, spoke about his brother Scott taking his own life.

Nine suspects first appeared in court that year charged under the Offensive Behaviour at Football Act.

When that law was scrapped, the charges were converted to threatening and abusive behaviour.

After a two-year wait and a string of hearings the trial was supposed to get underway at Glasgow Sheriff Court last September.
But the case was postponed as it emerged prosecutors gave defence lawyers a version of video evidence that had been edited by cops.

The briefs successfully argued that they did not have all the material available.

Sheriff Allan Findlay blasted law chiefs for not giving the solicitors “full disclosure” of evidence and threw out the trial.

He said: “The Crown has taken the view that they are going to rely on police evidence.

“I don’t know what’s on the disks. For the life of me, I cannot understand why the Crown simply didn’t disclose this stuff to the defence.”
The Crown Office then launched a fresh trial bid with two pre-trial hearings held earlier this year.

But Kieran Carvill, 19, Andrew McDonald, 24, Kasey McKinnon, 19, Martin Gallagher, 27, Mark Macdonald, 24, Ross Brady, 29, Lewis McLachlan, 20, Myles McSwegan, 18 and Michael Bentley, 28, are all in the clear after the case finally fell.

Legal expert and lecturer Dr Andrew Tickell said of the blunder: “Mistakes are made and it’s not ideal but it’s definitely a cock-up. It’s particularly unfortunate as it was such a visible incident.​
“No prosecutor wants to lose evidence. You do wonder if one of the reasons why is the fact that they were converting the Football Act charges into Section 38 charges.​
“I imagine that would have required the papers and materials to shuffle around.​
“The more hands things pass through, the easier it is for someone to misplace it. In general terms, disclosure is extremely important and it became statutory in Scotland from 2010 onwards.”​
Tory shadow justice secretary Liam Kerr added: “It’s unacceptable that a case like this should fall because material has been lost.​
“At a time when the spotlight is on the behaviour of football fans, this is disappointing.”​
Retired police chief turned politician Graeme Pearson called for the Crown to explain the mistake.​
The ex-match commander, also Scottish Labour’s former justice spokesman, said: “This is extremely unhelpful in the current environment, given the controversy around management of football crowds. The public is due a full explanation on what went wrong and how pieces of evidence could be lost.​
“I would hope that going forward such cases would be treated with a higher priority than seems to be in this instance.​
“The officers who conducted the investigation will be disappointed given the time dedicated to this case.​
“There will also be a feeling that public money has been wasted.”​
And Scottish Lib Dem justice spokesman Liam McArthur MSP said: “Losing evidence is a failure in basic case handling. The Crown Office has the responsibility to prosecute on behalf of the public, but under pressure, they are letting things slip.​
“This isn’t the first case where justice can’t be served because evidence has been lost, or disclosed too late. If pressures on the service aren’t addressed, it won’t be the last.”​

But there's people on here have the same footage, so surely that will do?

It's as clear as day that this evidence has been allowed to be lost and the first prosecution was a failure and proper disclosure was messed up because the Glasgow PF office is corrupt.

This whole fiasco should not be allowed to just be swept away and there should be sackings over this but we as supporters need to demand answers from Humza as he is meant to be the Justice Minister.

This needs an independent enquiry but it won’t ever be done as it’s not cost effective to do so.

We've said for years that there's a sectarian two-tier justice system in operation in the West of Scotland. We don't need any more proof. The reality is that prison sentences for sectarianism are overwhelmingly set aside for Protestants. Humza, the Justice Minister, won't even condemn this latest predictable oversight of crucial evidence.

In this day and age they have lost... tv, newspaper and eye witness evidence, but they swear it's gospel that a god exists with no eye witness, tv newspaper proof ?

Money is nothing to do with it. We can find £400k for the school children of Pakistan no problem.

Protecting the RC vote is the main driver. There was literally a failed terrorist attack on Scottish soil last week. The Scottish government is yet to comment.....

Idiots run this country.
They're not idiots, mate. They know exactly what they are doing. Imagine the outrage and mayhem if the DNA evidence against the punter accused of spitting on that priest was suddenly " lost " and the case against him collapsed.? Holyrood, from Humza and Sturgeon downwards would have kicked up Hell. The mhedia would dine out on the institutionalised anti-Kafflikism for months.

This shouldn't happen and if it does then there must be individuals that can be held accountable.
This would have been a huge file and for it to go missing should be nigh on impossible.
I simply don't believe this.
Nobody believes it as they have obviously deliberately messed up the first prosecution and then destroyed the video & photo evidence.

It wouldn't happen in England.
All the original exhibits would be retained by the police and the Prosecution (CPS) would only handle copies, it is the same with statements.
I find this entire shambles incredible...no criminal.
