Rules in scotland regarding citizens arrest

Recommended Posts

ashiie614

Hi everyone, i don't know if anyone can help give me a definitive answer regarding the rules of citizens arrest in Scottish law? I've scoured google and really the only information i can find is that common law applies,but was hoping maybe for something a little more specific to Scotland? Or maybe any sources that may help explain.

Strathy-

There is no such thing as a citizens arrest in Scotland, it's only covered under common law where anyone has ability to arrest someone for a serious offence which they must have witnessed.
