Special Payments (R011024)

Freedom of Information: Special Payments (R011024)

Thank you for your request dated 10 August 2015 under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) for the undernoted information: 

“Your latest accounts make reference to something called ‘special payments’. Can I have full details of the ‘special payments’ made by the Crown Office since 2000. 

This would detail how many special payments were made in each year (or how many cases there were in each year) and the total value of these special payments in each year.”

The information you have requested is available from FY 2002/03.  

The information for Financial Years 2007-2015  is available in the Annual Reports which are published on the COPFS website, however, I have attached a table herewith providing details of the number of cases in each financial year and the total value of the payments in each financial year from 2002-2015.
