She has denied any wrongdoing in the transactions which led to Mr Hales being struck off following a Scottish Solicitors’ Discipline Tribunal judgment.

Ms Thomson said: “In light of the amount of uninformed speculation about me during, and since, the Scottish parliamentary election campaign, I feel it necessary to give a public update on my position.

“I resigned the SNP whip in September 2015 in order that Police Scotland could conduct their inquiries. To date no approach has been made.”
