First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said she has not spoken to police in a probe into alleged missing party funds.
Police are investigating what happened to £600,000 of party money that was crowdfunded from independence supporters to be used in a new campaign to leave the UK.
Given Ms Sturgeon’s and her husband Peter Murrell’s senior positions in the party at the time, the First Minister has been repeatedly asked if she has spoken to detectives as part of the investigation.
“Look, no, but I’m not going to comment, I wouldn’t comment on any ongoing police investigation and I’m not going to comment on this one,” she said.
Asked if it had put pressure on her or her husband, who resigned at the weekend after a row of how media requests relating to membership numbers were handled, the First Minister said: “No, it hasn’t, no.”
