Attorney General Baroness Scotland could be ordered to appear in court if her former housekeeper stands trial on fraud and immigration offences next month.Heh..!
Loloahi Tapui, 27, from Tonga, who was charged on Friday, says she will instruct her legal team to bring Baroness Scotland forward as a witness if the Crown Prosecution Service does not.
A legal expert said: ‘Ms Tapui would be perfectly entitled to call Baroness Scotland as a witness for the defence.How does she plan to get out of this one, I wonder..?
‘If Lady Scotland refused to attend, she would have to provide a statement to the judge detailing why her evidence would not be suitable, although I cannot imagine why that would be the case.’
A spokesman for the CPS said there was ‘currently no witness list’ for the case.
