Cases Marked No Action – Timebarred on Receipt 2014 – 2015 (R010264)

Freedom of Information: Cases Marked No Action – Timebarred on Receipt 2014 – 2015 (R010264)

Thank you for your e-mail of 26 April 2015 under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) in which you requested the following information:

“How many cases were timebarred on receipt in 2014-15? Please break these down into charges”

I can advise you that 330 cases were marked “No Action – Timebarred on receipt” in 2014/15.

However, it may assist to explain that COPFS uses a live operational case management system, specifically designed to receive criminal and death reports from the police and other specialist reporting agencies and to manage the cases for prosecution purposes.  The information held on the system is structured for these operational needs, rather than for statistical reporting or research purposes.

As a result of how the COPFS electronic case management system works, while our records will indicate that the whole case was marked as ‘Timebarred on receipt’, there may be certain common law and statutory charges within such cases that such a marking does not apply to, as they do not timebar. If no action was taken in relation to such charges then this will have been for reasons other than being ‘Timebarred on receipt’.

Details of the total number of charges that were marked as ‘Timebarred on receipt’ have been provided at Annex A. This information has been compiled by totalling up the number of statutory charges that do timebar within the 330 case outlined above.
