TOP SCOTS LAWYER 'ABUSED DAUGHTER'.
The woman, now in her 30s, claims the abuse began when she was just four.
And she has alleged that her father, one of Scotland's senior establishment figures, carried out the abuse with friends, including ex-Solicitor General Sir Nicholas Fairbairn, in front of a cine camera.
But she fears any incriminating evidence he has could help him block an inquiry since it would topple many "respectable" senior members of the Scottish legal profession.
Eight lawyers have refused to take her case after learning who he was, she claims.
The woman said the abuse, including intercourse, continued until she was eight and she fears her father would kill her for going public. She added: "He wouldn't think twice about bumping me off."
The woman, who says she once took a knife to a court where her father was working to kill him, added: "I think he hates women."
And she claims he had sex with prostitutes in front of her and assaulted her mother.
Her allegations form part of a book by Sandra Brown in which the author accuses her own father of murdering 12-year-old Moira Anderson in Coatbridge in 1957.
Sandra believes the lawyer's daughter is considering making a formal complaint to police but is extremely scared.
