Freedom of Information - Terrorism-related cases

Thank you for your e-mail of 31 March 2014 under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) in which you seek the following information:

"I have seen the FOI request: "A list of all terrorism or terrorism related cases prosecuted in Scotland from 2000 to present"

http://www.copfs.gov.uk/foi/responses-we-have-made-to-foi-requests/690-cases-relating-to-terrorism

I was wondering if it would be possible to supply the number of convictions and what they were convicted for. Could I have the figures for the last 10 years – broken down into each year and preferably council area"


The information that you have requested is attached at Annex A below. As outlined in the previous FOI response that you have referred to, I have taken it that the information you request relates to charges prosecuted under the Terrorism Act 2000, the Anti-Terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001 and the Terrorism Act 2006. The information provided relates to all offences reported to COPFS under such legislation between 1 April 2003 and 31 January 2014.
