  • A Forced Marriage Protection Order was made in respect of a 16 year old girl which was subsequently breached when she married. The issue in this case was whether or not the police could apply for the mother and aunt to be committed to prison for breaching the order when it was not in fact they who had applied for the order in the first place - the applicant was the girl herself. The judge could not add in the police as a category of applicants in this situation because it would involve the police becoming "prosecutor" in all but name in civil proceedings in which no crime is alleged (the breach of an FMPO is not a criminal offence).
