NIcola Sturgeon was warned that it was "completely unacceptable" to keep the nature of her discussions with Alex Salmond, who were accused of sexual misconduct, a secret from the public.
Opposition parties demanded "full transparency" and called on the First Minister to reveal what was said in three meetings with her predecessor after two female officials accused him of harassment
Labor said she wanted to know if Mr. Salmond, who strongly rejects the allegations, had asked her to intervene in an official government investigation into his name.
She has submitted Freedom of Information requests to reveal what the current and former First Ministers have been discussing, and requests the clearance of protocol negotiations.
The party asked for information on what was happening at the meetings and all the correspondence between Mrs Sturgeon, her staff and Mr Salmond during a government inquiry.
It is also seeking the correspondence between Ms. Sturgeon and the SNP Managing Director – her husband Peter Murrell.
The most recent developments were that Mrs Sturgeon reiterated that there was no legal basis for the suspension of Mr Salmond from SNP and, as Mr Salmond had reportedly written to Scottish Secretary of State Leslie Evans, to ask whether there was any ' Leak detection "and violation of data protection laws was violated.
