Alister Craigie Charged

Dundee based Alister Craigie has been charged for his social media outbursts following the Manchester Arena atrocity.

Reports are suggesting Alister Craigie has been charged with posting racist and abusive messages on Facebook.

He has appeared at Dundee Sheriff Court to face a charge of sending "racist, abusive and offensive comments"

We'd previously reported on Alister Craigie's posts - but the account was cleaned up so quickly that we thought it could have been a hoax. The photograph alleged to be Mr Craigie couldn't be backed up by any other evidence, so we didn't publish it.

Prosecutors have labelled Alister Craigie's tweets as "grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene or menacing character". The charge also states the messages were "racially aggravated".
