‘Independence’ man Hill in court again

, by , in News

Self-styled Shetland independence campaigner Stuart Hill has made an appearance at Lerwick Sheriff Court.

Hill, of Ocraquoy, Cunningsburgh, has been charged with vandalism at the North Bridge Stores in Cunningsburgh yesterday.

He denied the charge after being led into the dock before sheriff Philip Mann today.

Trial was set for 23rd June, with an intermediate diet on 24th May.

Hill was released on bail, but ordered to abide by a number of special conditions.

The 72-year-old was told not to contact the procurator fiscal’s office, or attend the Cunningsburgh stores. Hill was also ordered not to disrupt court proceedings, including refusing to enter the dock or by making unsolicited comments which challenged the authority of the court.
