The last we heard of Natalie McGarry, she was being investigated over an allegation that she was connected with thousands of pounds that were missing from a Scottish Independence campaign group.

That’s still ongoing – but now she has turned up in Turkey, despite the fact that Parliament is sitting and she is still a member, despite having resigned the SNP whip.

What’s the story here, exactly?

The Scottish MP Natalie McGarry has been released by Turkish security forces after being detained for questioning following concerns about her using recording equipment.

She tweeted that she was “safe and absolutely fine” after reports in the Turkish media saying she had been taken into custody by police in Diyarbakir, south-east Turkey, despite showing her passport. She was believed to have been visiting the country on a trip organised by the GMB union.
