Why The M9 FAI Is Taking So Long

Following on from the last blog post about Fatal Accident Investigations, Lord Advocate James 'the big bad' Wolffe has said that he's quite confident that a Fatal Accident Investigation in to the M9 crash that killed John Yuill and Lamara Bell is inevitable and he's sure one will be conducted.

Now you're probably thinking "That's weird, it's been more than a year since that accident - surely they must've had an FAI before now"?


Not only have they not held one yet, they haven't even decided for sure whether they're gonna hold one at all.

There has been no official word one way or the other - just an 'airy fairy' statement from the Lord Advocate saying that he reckons there will be one at some point, some day, some time.

So why haven't the Crown office begun an FAI in to the M9 crash more than a year after the crash happened? Why the delay?

Who knows.

But what we do know is that John Yuill and Lamara Bell died in the M9 crash and lay in the wreckage for 3 days before Police Scotland responded to the emergency call.

Could it be that the Crown office are dragging their heels with this case because their best buddies Police Scotland are involved in it and are in the frame for it?

Could the corrupt Crown office be hoping that with the 'passage of time' certain events, evidence, and witness accounts will diminish to a point where there will be "insufficient evidence in law" (their favourite phrase) to prosecute any of their buddies in Police Scotland when the FAI is finally held and its findings published?
