As of the end January 2016, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) had successfully prosecuted and convicted 38 individuals in 27 cases where the allegations were considered to be related to the conflict in Syria.

The CPS does not hold central records for the number of people prosecuted in relation to Daesh.
