Question S1W-114

To ask the Scottish Executive whether it intends to pursue any further prosecutions in the case of Sunjit Singh Chhokar who was killed on 4 November 1998.

Lord Hardie:

Following the trial of Ronnie Coulter, who was acquitted by a jury in March of this year of the murder of Surjit Singh Chhokar, Crown Counsel instructed that further enquiries be carried out to consider whether any other person or persons should be prosecuted for crimes committed against Mr Chhokar.

The Procurator Fiscal at Hamilton has been conducting these enquiries on behalf of Crown Counsel and his report was submitted to Crown Office last week. The case is presently being considered by Crown Counsel and a decision as to any further proceedings is expected shortly.
