Nicola Sturgeon has insisted she “did nothing wrong” after returning home today for the first time since her arrest last Sunday in connection with a police investigation into the SNP’s finances.
The former prime minister told journalists gathered at the home she shares with husband Peter Murrell, in Uddingston, Lanarkshire: “I’m sure I’ve done nothing wrong.”
She was questioned by detectives for more than seven hours a week ago as part of a police investigation into the SNP’s finances. She temporarily left her home in Glasgow after being released without charge.
She said last week: “To find myself in the situation I found myself in when I was confident I had committed no offense is both shocking and deeply distressing.
“Obviously, given the nature of this process, I cannot go into details. I do want to say this, however, and in the strongest possible terms.
“Innocence is not just a presumption to which I am entitled under the law. I know beyond any doubt that I am, in fact, innocent of any wrongdoing.”
