After the last witness of the day, Alex Prentice QC, the Advocate Depute rose to address the jury. He informed the court that the prosecution was withdrawing all charges against Tommy Sheridan relating to the "Moat House chapter" of the indictment and also offering no further evidence on the first section of his indictment. Lord Bracadale then formally acquitted Mr Sheridan on the charge of suborning a witness (attempting to persuade someone to commit perjury)
The Advocate Depute also told the court that the Crown were withdrawing all but one charge against the co-accused Mrs Gail Sheridan.
