Andy Coulson perjury trial begins on Friday
Former News of the World editor Andy Coulson will go on trial this Friday accused of committing perjury in the trial of former MSP Tommy Sheridan.
Coulson, 47, appeared at the High Court in Edinburgh today and entered a plea of not guilty to the allegation that he lied under oath at Sheridan’s own perjury trial at the High Court in Glasgow in 2010.
The trial ended with Sheridan’s conviction and jailing.
Judge Lord Burns set Friday 15 May as the trial date following today’s hearing.
