Rather than creating a period of uncertainty, Mr Flanagan should have resigned weeks ago when it was crystal clear that two of the Parliament’s committees questioned his ability to lead this important organisation. John Finnie MSP

John Finnie MSP, Justice spokesperson for the Scottish Greens, today (14 June) welcomed the decision of the chair of Scotland's police watchdog to stand down from the role.

Andrew Flanagan is resigning from the Scottish Police Authority amid concerns over his conduct and the transparency and governance of the organisation.

John Finnie MSP said:

“Andrew Flanagan has made the right decision, albeit at the wrong time.

“Rather than creating a period of uncertainty, Mr Flanagan should have resigned weeks ago when it was crystal clear that two of the Parliament’s committees questioned his ability to lead this important organisation.

“I wish him well in the future.”
