Salmond appeared in Edinburgh Sheriff Court for a short hearing that took place in private. The former minister was faced with a total of 14 charges: nine charges of sexual assault, two attempts of rape, two indecent assaults and one breach of the peace.


Police had been investigating Salmond after an inquiry of complaints against him was filed.
Speaking outside the court, Mr Salmond said “The only thing I can say is I refute absolutely these allegations of criminality and I’ll defend myself to the utmost in court.”


Salmond was released on bail after making no plea. As of now, there has not been a date set for the next hearing of the case.
