Glasgow Commonwealth Games land deals under investigation

Following the eviction of the Jaconellis from their home to make way for the Glasgow Commonwealth Games questions are finally being asked about land deals which netted property developers millions of pounds in profit. MSP James Dornan has made a complaint to Strathclyde police who say they are examining the deals. Among those who scored lots of money is the former owner of Rangers Football Club, David Murray, who paid £375,000 for land later sold for £5.1m. The Jaconellis, on the other hand, fought for eight years to resist eviction and were still arguing with the council over their compensation when they were forcibly removed.
