Sharia Law

Posted by on Nov 4, 2012 in News

The gold standard of English family law is that it is fair, protects human rights and is non-discriminatory

A Parliamentary Bill that will ensure the primacy of UK family law over Sharia  law is to get its second reading in the House of Lords this Friday.

The  Arbitration and Mediation Services (Equality) Bill, first introduced by  Baroness Caroline Cox, is intended to stop Sharia courts in this country  claiming legal jurisdiction over family (and criminal) law issues, with the  clear objective to prevent discrimination against Muslim women in divorce  and family cases.
