THE former director of operations for All Under One Banner, Manny Singh, is now facing a possible second prosecution for failing to comply with a council’s ruling on a march and rally held by the group.

Police Scotland is reporting Singh, who was sacked from AUOB at the weekend, to the Procurator Fiscal for failing to have a public entertainment licence for the march and rally in Ayr on Saturday, July 6.

He has already been reported to the fiscal in Glasgow over the AUOB march in the city in May where some of the council’s licence conditions were ignored.

Singh said he was charged yesterday under Section 7 of the Civic Government Scotland Act 1982, which can mean a fine or imprisonment for up to three months if found guilty.

South Ayrshire Council had insisted that AUOB get a public entertainment licence because a stall and stage were to be used on Low Green.

Singh, who has refused to accept that AUOB can dismiss him, was named organiser for Ayr and refused to comply.

“We have never needed such a licence anywhere else,” said Singh, who says he will strongly contest any charges.

Gary Kelly of AUOB, who was originally named as organiser for Ayr, confirmed to The National that he had been taken to Drumchapel police station yesterday to give a statement.
