Första officiella sharia-domstolarna i Storbritannien

"ISLAMIC law has been officially adopted in Britain, with sharia courts given powers to rule on Muslim civil cases.

The government has quietly sanctioned the powers for sharia judges to rule on cases ranging from divorce and financial disputes to those involving domestic violence."

"Politicians and church leaders expressed concerns that this could mark the beginnings of a “parallel legal system” based on sharia for some British Muslims.

Dominic Grieve, the shadow home secretary, said: “If it is true that these tribunals are passing binding decisions in the areas of family and criminal law, I would like to know which courts are enforcing them because I would consider such action unlawful. British law is absolute and must remain so.”

There are concerns that women who agree to go to tribunal courts are getting worse deals because Islamic law favours men."

Sharia-domstolar finns redan i London, Birmingham, Bradford och Manchester med högkvarter i Nuneaton, Warwickshire. Ytterligare två domstolar planeras i Glasgow och Edinburgh.

Inte helt oväntat uttrycks oro för att sharia-domstolar dömer familjevåldsbrott, med hänsyn till islams syn på kvinnor.
Politiker och kyrkliga ledare är även bekymrade över att detta kan markera början på ett "parallellt rättssystem".

Sveriges nästa?

Tack för tipset, Galenzo!
