Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 made Forced Marriage a specific offence under s121.
“A Forced Marriage Protection Order (FMPO) is a civil remedy issued under the FM (Civil Protection) Act 2007. It offers protection to a victim from all civil or religious ceremonies, by forbidding the respondent(s) themselves, or by encouraging or agreeing with any person whatsoever, from entering into any agreements in relation to the engagement or matrimony. A FMPO may contain such prohibitions, restrictions or requirements and any other such terms as the court considers appropriate for the purposes of the order. An application for a FMPO can be made by a victim, a person obtaining the court’s permission to apply for an order on behalf of the victim, a relevant third party or by the court of its own volition.” (CPS)
A breach of a FMPO is a criminal offence under s120 of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.
Policing and Crime Act 2017 (section 173) provides lifelong anonymity for victims of Forced Marriage.
There is currently no specific legislation in regards to so called Honour Based Violence. Each criminal act is dealt with under the relevant violence legislation. However, it is identified as one of the types of gender-based violence under the Violence Against Women, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence (Wales) Act 2015.
