The not proven verdict and related reforms - Consultation
This Scottish Government consultation seeks views on the three verdict system in Scottish criminal trials and, if the not proven verdict were to be abolished, whether any accompanying reforms would be necessary to other aspects of the Scottish criminal justice system including jury size, majority required for verdict and the corroboration rule.
The views gathered will inform what, if any, reforms will be taken forward.
