Officers confirmed multiple complaints had been received by the force about the incident on Thursday, December 22, which saw a protester lift up their skirt to show what appeared to be a merkin – a pubic wig.
The act was part of a protest from opponents of the Bill, which involved one individual shouting “I am a duck trapped in a woman’s body, quack quack, quack quack”, as well as “shame on you” and “there is no democracy here”.
The ‘flashing’ incident saw a woman shout “if you are not going to be decent, I am going to be indecent”, before lifting up her skirt in the public gallery.
It is understood police officers did not arrest the individual immediately following the protest in Holyrood. However, complaints from some attending have since been received by police.
A Police Scotland spokesperson told The Scotsman: "We have received complaints and enquiries are ongoing."
