AN INFLUENTIAL Sharia court has been accused of “protecting wife-beating men” by interfering with criminal proceedings.

The Muslim Arbitration Tribunal (Mat) in Nuneaton, Warwickshire, has come under fire amid accusations of “sabotaging” criminal proceedings relating to domestic violence.

The Nuneaton Mat is one of the most influential Sharia courts in Britain, ruling on disputes between members of Muslim communities. On the tribunal’s website it states that it can make submissions to ask the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) to reconsider criminal charges brought against men accused of domestic violence.

The Mat says it aims to provide reconciliation between parties where charges for criminal assaults relating to domestic violence have been brought forward.
