Only one of many MASONIC judges who have been destroying thousands of lives across Scotland.
All of them protecting each other from their fraud and corruption.
SOURCE (Now pulled after NOWT collapsed)
For anyone unfamiliar with Lothian he was the judge who locked up IMO member George
Farquhar in a mental hospital for exposing the very things this article reports.
George was being forced by 8 nurses onto the ground before being injected with a
chemical cosh to destroy his mind. We called him daily and heard his whole personna
slip away before our actions to the Scottish Parliament got him released.
His speech the day he was released to go to the Scottish Parliament was maybe the single
most important speech that has EVER been made there SEE AT THE TOP OF THIS PAGE.
His demise should give all George's supporters a lovely warm glow . Lothian like many
other Scottish judges is an evil bastard who deserves to be hung drawn and quartered
for the lives he has destroyed.
One down another few hundred to go. RIGHT!!!!!!!!

SLEAZY sheriff Andrew Lothian is a wife-beating drunk who’s obsessed with prostitutes, his ex-wife reveals.
The shamed 66-year-old was forced to quit the bench after claims he paid for spanking and whipping sessions with an Edinburgh hooker.
But today the News of the World can expose the shocking secrets of his sordid private life.
According to long-suffering ex-wife Harriet Lothian, the twisted beak:
TRIED to make her have sex with strangers while he watched
ADMITTED using prostitutes during their marriage
DOWNED at least a bottle of spirits every day, and
BATTERED her while their unsuspecting kids slept upstairs.
Speaking at length for the first time since her ex-husband’s sauna shame, disgusted Harriet, 57, below, said: “I’m surprised it took so long for his activities to be exposed.
“I tried repeatedly to alert the police and the Crown to his unsuitability for office because of his behaviour, but to no avail.
“I suffered greatly at his hands, both during our marriage and for many years after I divorced him.”
We told last November how Lothian quit his £125,000-a-year job after Crown Office bosses confronted him about allegations over his private life.
But, according to Harriet his obsession with sordid sex had been going on for years.
Lothian’s wife of 19 years said: “Sexually, there were problems from an early stage in the marriage.
“I found it so unsettling that I sought advice from my father, who was a doctor, and who I could talk to about anything.
“Andrew was into kinky but fairly inadequate sex. He also had fantasies about introducing third parties, men or women, into the bedroom.
“I had no interest, but he kept asking me to do it to please him.
“I refused because I found the idea repulsive. He said he could pay people to make his fantasies come true.”
Harriet suspected her hubby was using hookers during their marriage.
And she told how her elderly father was forced to confront Lothian about the sleazy claims. Harriet said: “He confessed without any shame. He told me he had lost his virginity at 16 to a prostitute, and that he’d always been turned on by them.
“I was devastated. I told him I’d never have unprotected sex with him again but he was totally unrepentant.
“Once his obsession was out in the open, he became more demanding. If he was out at a dinner, he would bring men home and want me to have sex with them while he watched.
“I would have to throw them out, which was embarrassing. I found the idea repugnant. Apart from anything else, I had children in the house.
“My father was 68, but was very close to me and he had no hesitation in speaking to Andrew and telling him to shape up.”
The couple had married on December 28, 1983, after a whirlwind romance. Lothian already had a son, also Andrew, from the first of two previous marriages, and Harriet had a young son, James, from a previous relationship.
Two years after their wedding, Harriet gave birth to their son Robert, but already the foundations of the marriage were beginning to crumble.
She says: “By the time Robert came along, I had serious concerns about his father’s alcoholism and how terribly ill it was making him. He was drinking at least a bottle of spirits a day, and that was just what I was witnessing. He was in a mess.
“I went home with Robert on New Year’s Day 1986 and Andrew was in such a terrible state that he became abusive. I threw a milk bottle at him and hit him on the side of the head.
“The next day, I insisted he saw a doctor, and he agreed because his mother was in the house.
Harriet tried to alert senior legal officals to her husband’s alcohol abuse but was snubbed at every turn.
Things spiralled further out of control and by Christmas 1996 Harriet demanded Lothian move out. She said: “His language became more abusive. There were implied threats of violence and the odd punch to the side of the head where no visible marks were left, but I was still shocked by what happened then.”
Harriet told how their sons, James, now 27, and Robert, now 23, were in their bedrooms when a huge row erupted on Christmas Eve that year. She claims Lothian slapped her hard in the face, before punching her full on the nose.
As their shocked mother took refuge in the bathroom, where she tried to stem the flow of blood, both sons plucked up the courage to leave their rooms and go to her aid.
With her face badly marked and her eyes beginning to blacken, the family went through the motions the next day, exchanging presents and eating dinner — but the mood was understandably bleak.
Harriet said: “Until that point, I’d been trying to hold things together for my sons, but I couldn’t go on with the charade. No child should have to see their mother pouring with blood from a blow their father has struck. It was a total nightmare.”
Robert said: “I remember clearly what happened that night and it sickens me the way he behaved. It is more than ten years since I have spoken to him.
“When I was 12 I wrote him a letter telling him I wanted nothing to do with him.”
Following the attack Harriet demanded that Lothian move out of the family home in Lauder, Berwickshire.
She wept: “I feared for the safety of our sons. I had no choice.” But in summer 2001 Lothian — then living in Edinburgh — launched a court bid to SELL the house.
She said: “The move was especially hurtful as Robert was about to start his Higher courses.
“It was also difficult to understand as Andrew had inherited a six-figure sum the previous year when his mother died.”
Lothian’s partner at that time, Eleanor Burns, daughter of Sir John and Lady Eleanor Burns, had also inherited a substantial sum on the death of her mother, just a week before Catriona Lothian’s death. By 2002, when they finally divorced, Harriet claims that Lothian enjoyed a six-figure salary whilst Harriet took care of their children and could only work part-time as a rape crisis counsellor.
In the end she had to pay Lothian £28,000 to buy him out of the family home and finish the marriage.
Lothian and his brother Murdoch were subject to an Inland Revenue investigation in 2000 after claiming the contents of their late mother’s Stirling home were worth a mere £5,000.
This included antique furniture, jewellery, silver, paintings and pottery. It’s understood the Inland Revenue later valued the list at £300,000.
But Harriet still wishes justice had been done for the assault she endured in 1996. She said: “Successive governments on both sides of the border have claimed to wage war on domestic violence.
“There was an opportunity for the Scottish establishment to show there was substance behind the platitudes by taking action against a senior lawyer. But typically, they covered his back.”
Now self-employed in horticulture, Harriet added: “I have to work extremely hard to make a living. Andrew’s disgrace has not made life any easier, but I feel vindicated.”
Lothian served on the Glasgow bench from 1979 to 1992 before moving to Edinburgh. He’s expected to keep his £7,000-a-month pension.
He was unavailable to comment on the allegations.
