The MSP was reported to police over a social media post last year.

Police have said the personal details of an MSP were not recorded in relation to a non-crime hate incident logged against him.

“During the conversation regarding allegation one it was confirmed to you, your personal details were not recorded on Police Scotland’s Interim Vulnerable Persons Database in relation to the hate incident in question.”The force said an officer had been allocated to investigate those allegations, which the letter described as “complex”.

On Thursday, the day the response was received, Mr Fraser wrote again to Police Scotland to clarify its policy on the recording of non-crime hate incidents. He also asked if the decision to record his case as such and not the First Minister’s “suggests political bias”.
