Sharia courts putting women at risk, CPS warns
by Josie Ensor
Sharia courts are putting women at risk of violence from abusive husbands, the Crown Prosecution Service has warned.
The courts, which issue rulings according to Islamic law, have been found to be giving Muslim women advice which experts warned may place them in danger.
Undercover filming in some of the 85 councils operating in mosques and houses across the country has revealed that the courts, which are run by sharia councils, are ruling in favour of men meeting estranged wives or having access to children when they have found to have been abusive.
