After an alleged violation of the coronavirus law, MP Margaret Ferrier was arrested and charged.
After it emerged last year that she made a trip from Glasgow to the House of Commons while awaiting the results of a Covid 19 test and a return trip after being informed she had the virus, Ms Ferrier, 60, was stripped of her SNP whip.
Police Scotland reported that in connection with suspected culpable and reckless behaviour, a 60-year-old woman has been arrested and charged.
In the midst of returning to lockdown, Police Scotland confirms ‘increased patrols’
A Police Scotland spokeswoman said, “We can confirm that officers have today arrested and charged a 60-year-old woman in connection with suspected culpable and reckless behaviour.
This follows a detailed investigation into an alleged violation of the coronavirus legislation by Police Scotland between 26 and 29 September 2020.
“A report will be sent to the Crown Prosecution Service and we are not in a position to comment further.”
The Metropolitan Police said in October that, after an investigation, it would take “no further action” against the MP.
Ms. Ferrier has remained an independent MP for Rutherglen and Hamilton West in spite of pressure to give up her seat.
