Lawyers have accused a company that paid millions to transport Scottish lags of missing up to 50 court transfers a week.
The defense briefs hit GEOAmey after we revealed the mess had a major impact on the criminal justice system, which has tens of thousands of pending trials.
In one case, it took more than 10 hours to get suspects from a police station less than 10 miles away to Hamilton Sheriff Court.
Glasgow defense attorney Matthew McGovern called the raids “appalling”.
He tweeted, “These delays are impacting not only the defendants but also the victims, witnesses and juries.” GEOAmey does not appear to be expecting any sanctions. Why?”
Lawyer Ian Moir, also based in Glasgow, chimed in: “When will the Scottish Government hold anyone accountable for their failures?”
GEOAmey, who are said to be facing a staffing crisis, explained that transfers are “challenging” at times of high demand.
A spokesman for the Scottish court said work was being done to “ensure improvements”.
