FIRST Minister Humza Yousaf’s brother-in-law has been arrested for a second time.

Ramsay El-Nakla, the sibling of Yousaf’s partner, SNP councillor Nadia El-Nakla, had first been arrested in connection to drugs charges last Thursday.

On Monday, Mr El-Nakla, 36, appeared on petition at Dundee Sheriff Court, charged with offences including supplying heroin, along with Stephen Stewart, 50, and Victoria McGowan, 41.

They are further charged with being in possession of cocaine and cannabis.

The offences are alleged to have happened in Balmoral Gardens in Dundee on Thursday, January 11, the same date the three were arrested.

McGowan, of Dundee, is accused of committing the offences while on bail.

All three made no plea at the court hearing.

El-Nakla secured bail, the Sun reported, but all three were arrested again in connection with a second incident before they could leave court.

Police said a man had fallen from a flat window on Monday January 10, before being taken to hospital for treatment for "serious injuries".

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Two men, aged 50 and 36, and a 41-year-old woman were arrested on Monday, 15 January, 2024 in connection with an incident on Morgan Street, Dundee on Wednesday, January 10.

“Around 8.20am on January 10, officers received a report that a man had fallen from a flat. The 36-year-old man was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

“Enquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances.”

Asked about the case on Monday, First Minister Yousaf told the PA news agency: “Well I can’t comment because it is a live court case. It is due to call today.

“It would be inappropriate for me to comment at this stage.

“There may well be [a statement] but I’m very keen not to be seen to interfere with any court case, let alone one involving my brother in law.”

El Nakla, Stewart – who is listed in court papers as being of no fixed abode – and McGowan will appear in court again at a later date.
