Everything about his involvement is sketchy.
The other day he was telling that Michelle Gray, who maintains he never contacted her, that he had tried to contact her and that it was likely a lost email or some similar pish.
He kept quiet right up until that last court case, then crawls out with some damage limitation, distancing and "wisnae poor selic mister". Pretty much trying to look pro active but keep their name away from it.
Then comes away with that cracker about knowing "Nothing like what has come out". So what did you know James? Is he just another in a long list that knew details about the "open secret" and kept quiet? sinister as fuck.
But your spot on about him being watched. Wouldn't be surprised if we see him keep schtum for a while, as his ilk are prone to do, silence is the norm for them around this type of systematic abuse.
