Scottish Greens Co-Leader Patrick Harvie MSP has slammed the Scottish Government for “effectively subsidising the military operations of a dangerous far right regime.”

 

Questioning the Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity in parliament this afternoon, Mr Harvie said,

“Is it not offensive in a week when Scotland’s Kurdish community will be protesting outside the US Embassy at the withdrawal of its forces, leaving their comrades vulnerable to attack by Turkey. At a time when the US democratic procedures are investigating conflict of interest and a potential breach of the US constitution in relation to dealings with both Prestwick and Turnberry. Is it not offensive in that context for a Scottish publicly owned asset to be effectively subsidising the military operations of a dangerous far right regime.”
