On Tuesday 18 April Glasgow High Court is due to begin hearing evidence in the case of Her Majesties Advocate V Craig Whyte. Mr Whyte, who is 45, faces two charges, one of fraud and the second an allegation under the Companies Act.

Risks and Challenges

As the case is listed as a "dedicated floating trial" there is a slight chance there may be a delay in proceedings commencing. No money will be taken from pledgers until the trial begins. Permission to live-tweet proceedings from inside court have been requested but not yet confirmed.
