SNP councillor facing deselection for lying in court

An SNP councillor is expected to be deselected by his party for lying in court in divorce proceedings.

Dr Imtiaz Majid was severely criticised by a sheriff for lying in his testimony in divorce proceedings earlier this year. The sheriff said that Majid had lied and fabricated evidence to try and deny his wife a fair divorce settlement.

Majid lied about gambling away his fortune, involved his brothers in the deception and tried to hide his business interests.
