Forced marriage: No prosecutions in Scotland under new law
by Shabnam Mahmood
There have been no prosecutions over forced marriage in Scotland since a law was passed three years ago, the BBC has learned.
Forced Marriage Protection Orders can be issued to prevent people being married against their will.
Ten orders have been issued since 2011. Those who breach them face up to two years in prison.
