Domestic Abuse Legal Loophole Closed (Scottish Government 06/10/10)

October 11, 2010

From Scottish Government:

A new law which has been fast-tracked by the Scottish Government to close a legal loophole in domestic abuse cases comes into force from today. The new offence of ‘engaging in threatening or abusive behaviour’ came into effect at one minute past midnight and will now give greater protection to victims of domestic abuse: http://www.scotland.gov.uk/News/Releases/2010/10/05134600
