Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “Alex Salmond lashes out at Nicola Sturgeon for 'astonishing' attacks”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The Scottish government launched an investigation in 2017 after two women made formal complaints against Alex Salmond.

He launched legal action against the government's handling of the investigation and won a judicial review in January 2019, receiving £512,000 to cover his legal fees. 

Mr Salmond was charged with 13 counts of sexual assault, including attempted rape, but was acquitted of all charges in March 2020.

Mr Salmond has claimed he was the victim of a conspiracy by senior SNP figures to end his role in public life.  

However, Mr Salmond's ex-chief of staff says he talked about the issue with the First Minister four days before that.
