Scottish father sues NHS trust over "false sex abuse memories"

December 12, 2003

A FORMER political party official who was falsely accused of sexually abusing his daughter is suing an NHS trust for £250,000. Jim Fairlie, 63, the former deputy leader of the Scottish National Party, claims his life was wrecked when his daughter, Katrina, underwent a discredited therapy which produced false memories of violence. He has asked a judge at the Court of Session in Edinburgh to allow a full hearing against NHS Tayside. He believes a doctor extracted false memories from Miss Fairlie using recovered memory therapy (RMT).
