Private Prosecutions

Question for Ministry of Justice

UIN 170725, tabled on 5 September 2018

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, how many prosecutions initiated by private third parties were brought to trial in the last five years; and how many of those prosecutions resulted in a conviction.

Answered on

The information could only be provided at disproportionate cost. Data held centrally by the Ministry of Justice does not identify whether a prosecution is private.
