Ex-SNP Councillor Craig Melville finally appears in court

Ex-SNP Councillor Craig Melville was charged by police in April 2016. It was alleged that Mr Melville had sent offensive messages to a colleague, Nadia El-Nakla.

Court documents state that Melville faces a charge that, between November 13th and 15th, 2015 at Marlee Road, Dundee, he behaved in a threatening and abusive manner towards Nadia El-Nakla, who works as a parliamentary assistant and senior case officer for Health Secretary Shona Robison.

Prosecutors say he behaved in a way “likely to cause a reasonable person fear and alarm” by sending messages that “contained threatening, abusive and derogatory remarks regarding Muslims”.

It is understood that Mr Melville did not enter a plea and the next hearing is scheduled for July 2017.
