Breach of the Peace

Pamela R Ferguson

Edinburgh University Press

The re-establishment of the Scottish Parliament in 1999 has resulted in the enactment of several offences which overlap, to varying degrees, with breach of the peace. These include statutory offences relating, inter alia, to stalking and offensive behaviours. This Chapter also considers the extent to which this legislation has the potential to reduce the number and range of cases prosecuted for the common law crime.
