Dear Ms Gaw,

COMPLAINT ABOUT THE POLICE

Thank you for your letter dated 7 January 2010.

By way of an update, I request clarification on just one point.

Have you established whether or not anyone from Strathclyde Police has ever attempted to obtain a plausible explanation for the omission of £187,069 of cash received from the European Regional Development Fund, which was the reimbursement of taxpayers’ funds that had already been spent by Enterprise Ayrshire, from the accounts of Enterprise Ayrshire from 25 June 1993 until the morning after I put my formal objection to that omission into writing to my supervisors on 17 August 1993, and for the almost exactly simultaneous deposit of £187,000 into a Royal Bank of Scotland high interest account in the name of one of those supervisors?

I have copied this letter to the First Minister Mr Alex Salmond MSP, to Justice Minister Mr Kenny MacAskill MSP, to my local political representative Mr Bob Doris MSP, to Scottish Enterprise, to Audit Scotland, to Strathclyde Police and to the Crown Office.

This is clearly a matter of public interest that would tend to undermine the public’s confidence in the administration of justice, justice not yet having been seen to be done.

Yours sincerely,

                              Eddie Cairns.
