Former Rangers administrators settle claims against Police Scotland

Two former Rangers FC administrators have settled their claims against Police Scotland over their wrongful arrest and detention for an undisclosed sum.

Lawyers for David Whitehouse and Paul Clark, who worked for Duff & Phelps, yesterday confirmed they had dropped their lawsuit against the chief constable, STV News reports.

The pair were detained on two occasions following dawn raids at their home in Cheshire and Surrey in November 2014 and September 2015 before being arrested and charged.

They were accused of being involved in a “fraudulent scheme” and “attempting to pervert the course of justice” and originally faced a total of seven charges before all the charges on the indictment against them were eventually dropped or dismissed.

The pair are still suing the Crown Office, which has already conceded that the prosecution was “malicious”, but are expected to enter into mediation.
