Assistant Chief Constable Bernie Higgins has no case to answer over misconduct allegations

The Scottish Sun report that Assistant Chief Constable Bernie Higgins was told he has no case to answer over ten misconduct allegations — including one that he swore at work. Critics have criticised the Scottish Police Authority for failing to announce their ruling following a secret meeting last month. The claims, made anonymously, saw the high-profile officer suspended for more than three months.

Liam said: “Considering the huge publicity initially, the SPA should have set the record straight after they decided Bernie has no case to answer.

“There are also serious questions to answer about how this saga has been allowed to continue so long.

“I hope the Crown makes a speedy decision on the remaining issues.”
