Prosecutors drop Sheridan perjury charge case.
Advocate depute Alex Prentice QC withdrew the charge at the close of the Crown case this after noon.
The Crown also dropped several allegations against Sheridan and his wife Gail, who are on trial in Glasgow.
The couple, both 46, deny lying under oath during his successful defamation action against the News of the World newspaper in 2006.
The action followed the newspaper's claims that former Socialist MSP Sheridan was an adulterer who visited swingers' clubs.
Yesterday, the Crown dropped the charge that, in June, 2006, Sheridan tried to persuade his Colin Fox to commit perjury.
