Report by Birgit Maaß
Scottish nationalists are pressing for a second independence referendum, which the British government has said it will block. As the Scottish National Party (SNP) starts its conference, thousands took to the streets.
Salmond is stepping down from the party he led for 20 years and suing the Scottish government. He has denied the allegations against him and claimed that the government has mishandled the investigation into the claims.
Scottish voters overwhelmingly rejected Britain quitting the European Union. As Brexit draws nearer, many are anxious for Scotland to find a way out, but not necessarily at the price of leaving the United Kingdom.
