Inspectorate of Prosecution in Scotland Annual Report 2009-2010

This report was published in November 2010.

“This is my third report as Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Prosecution in Scotland since the office was established as a statutory one in April 2007 by the Criminal Proceedings etc. (Reform) (Scotland) Act 2007.

My duty in terms of the legislation is to secure the inspection of the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service and to submit to you, the Lord Advocate, a report on any particular matter connected with the operation of the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service which you refer to me.

As seems to be the norm now the past 12 months have produced cases and issues of considerable importance to the Prosecution Service in Scotland. In particular the impending decision of the Supreme Court in the Cadder case is likely to have far reaching consequences for all parts of the criminal justice system. The results of the UK Government’s Spending Review are also likely to impact for many years.”
