Our records show that there were 4 convictions for Honour based incidents; this is accurate as of the date your request was processed.

In response to question 7 there were no murder cases recorded involving honour based violence.

The information being disclosed is unlikely to be an accurate figure/representation of the extent of the investigation into these offences/incidents. Other agencies are also involved in dealing with this type of offence and therefore not all reports will be recorded by the police.
