Scottish Government right to give men a full pardon

Cabinet Secretary for Justice Michael Matheson MSP has said that the Scottish Government will introduce full pardons for men convicted for same-sex sexual activity under historic discriminatory laws.

I very much welcome this move by the Scottish Government. Men convicted under this old law did nothing wrong and it is absolutely right they are given a full pardon. This step will bring much needed closure to those men who had a great wrong committed against them.
