Nicola Sturgeon 'delighted and relieved' as inquiry clears her of breaching ministerial code
Guardian, 23 Mar 2021
The Scottish first minister said she was 'very pleased' after an independent inquiry cleared her of breaching the ministerial code over her dealings with Alex Salmond. James Hamilton QC, a former Irish prosecutor, had investigated Sturgeon after she was accused of deliberately misleading Holyrood about when she knew about sexual harassment allegations against Salmond.
'I have been at peace with my own conscience on all of these matters,' Sturgeon said. 'It's important to the Scottish people that they have independent verification of that, and that is what they now have'
