Andy Coulson WILL face perjury charges in a Scottish court.
The former News of the World executive and press adviser to Prime Minister David Cameron has been told he will face court in Scotland over statements he made under oath during the Tommy Sheridan trial.
He met Scots QC Paul McBride at the Matrix legal chambers in London last week. That meeting came after a series of telephone calls between McBride, Coulson, and senior members of the Conservative Party.
McBride has been helping the Conservatives shape their legal policies for some time and is on first name terms with some of the party’s most senior figures in Scotland and London.
Coulson has been told to prepare himself for charges. Legal restrictions prevent further reporting at this time.
