Forster Xmas Homecoming Rumours

RUMOURS are circulating that jailed lawyer Kennedy Forster is to be allowed home to spend a final Christmas in his luxurious Stranraer house.

Forster's home, Thornbank House, was sold two weeks ago by estate agent FPD Savills. But the buyer is said to have been given an entry date of mid-January, igniting rumours of the former Honorary Sheriff's return to spend the festive period with his family.

The Scottish Prison Service refused to comment on the rumour this week.

However, the Free Press understands that Forster will not be allowed out of prison this winter and, in fact, will not be allowed to apply for parole until 2007.

A spokesman for the prison service this week said:

"We do not comment on individual prisoner's cases."

Forster (54) was again the subject of court action this week as the Crown started proceedings to claw back any assets they can link to his fraudulent past. When the case was called at the Court of Session, it was adjourned until Thursday, 11th or Friday, 12th November.
