Submission from the Law Society of Scotland
I have taken soundings from the Criminal Law
Committee and they confirm to me that offences which would be
prosecuted under this Act in England and Wales would be prosecuted
in Scotland under the common law offence of breach of the peace.
A recent but unreported example is that of the photographer who
attempted to take photographs of the popular entertainer Madonna's
wedding which took place in Scotland last year.
