This morning the court has heard from three witnesses, Kenneth Lang, a Glasgow solicitor who acts for the News of the World, Paul Sinclair a journalist who was political editor of the Scottish Daily Record on 2004 and Keith Baldessera an SSP member and a former close colleague of Tommy Sheridan.
Mr Lang was questioned closely about his actions in producing documents for the trial, his contacts with Crown witnesses Katrine Trolle and Fiona McGuire and the costs of putting up witnesses Anne Colvin and Helen Allison in an Edinburgh hotel during the 2006 trial.
Mr Sinclair has told the court about a conversation he had with Mr Sheridan in Edinburgh in November 2004, in which Mr Sheridan alledgedly told the journalist there was no "plot against him"
Mr Baldessera is still testifying, however he has already told the court that he believes Mr Sheridan made admissions of sexual misconduct to him before the 9th November SSP executive meeting and at that meeting.
