CAMPAIGNERS will gather in Glasgow today to demand that the undercover policing inquiry be extended to Scotland.
The public inquiry was established three years ago, but its remit only covers England and Wales, despite evidence that the undercover Metropolitan Police units also operated north of the border.
Speakers at the meeting will include Andrea, a Scottish activist deceived into long-term relationship by undercover police officer Carlo Neri, and Labour MSP Neil Findlay.
In 2017 the Court of Session in Edinburgh granted permission for a full judicial review hearing, after social justice activist Tilly Gifford challenged the Westminster government’s failure to extend the inquiry to Scotland. The case is due to be heard from July 19.
Andrea said: “Carlo and I spent a significant amount of time together in Scotland.
“On occasion, our trips north were entirely at his behest. I want to know why he was so interested in Scotland and I want to know what information is held on me and my family. We deserve to know the truth.”
