From 16th June 2014, new legislation will be introduced which means that forced marriage will become a crime. Under the new legislation, anyone found guilty of forced marriage can face up to seven years imprisonment.
If you or someone you know has concerns about forced marriage – always call 999 in an emergency. For non- emergencies you can call West Yorkshire Police on 101 or contact Calderdale Police Safeguarding Unit on 01422 337041.
