At 5.30pm on Wednesday 19th April 2017 I launched a Crowdfunder campaign to raise an initial sum of £10,000 to help cover legal expenses to be incurred if my pursuer decides to call the defamation action outlined in its summons of 21 March. Within 24 hours, I had achieved my target and earlier this evening (20 April), the funds raised stood at over £23,000. I am extremely grateful to all those who have contributed.
Earlier today, I also received notice that the case had been called in the Court of Session. It is on the Court Rolls and court proceedings are now underway. I continue to deny the allegations and will be defending the action.
