Earlier this year, BBC Scotland reported that a former MP and Unison official - John Lyons - had been asked to repay almost £19,000 that he had over claimed in expenses.
At the time, Mr Lyons insisted he had done nothing wrong - claimed never to have received any correspondence from the House of Commons authorities requesting repayment - and said he would be demanding a full apology.
At the weekend the newspapers reported - quietly and without fuss - that John Lyons was paying back the monies requested of him by Sir Thomas Legg - who looked into MPs' expenses claims going all the way back to 2004.
Sir Thomas Legg originally recommended that John Lyons - former Labour MP for Strathkelvin and Bearsden - repay £18,780.80 in mortgage interest payments.
Meanwhile another former Unison official and Labour MSP - Jim Devine - has been ordered to pay £35,000 to his former office manager in damages - following a complaint for breach of contract and unfair dismissal to the employment tribunals.
Employment judge - Judge Jane Porter - said: "The claimant (Marion Kinley) showed great fortitude through her employment, during which it can only be said the claimant was subject to a course of bullying and harassment by the respondent (Jim Devine)."
Jim Devine and two other Labour MPs (David Chaytor and Elliot Morley) - still face criminal charges over their MPs' expenses claims - a case which is slowly working its way through the courts.
