    Sorry this is from 2 years ago but perhaps still (or more relevant)

    Fewer than half of acid attack victims pursue criminal charges against their attackers, researchers have found. The study, also revealed that, contrary to the common perception of acid attacks, the majority of victims were white men.

    Researchers from the St. Andrews Centre for Plastic Surgery and Burns, one of the UK’s leading burns units, examined data from 21 cases involving victims of acid attacks dating back over the last fifteen years, publishing the results in the journal Scars, Burns & Healing. They found that only nine of these cases (43 percent) were criminally investigated, while the remainder had no police involvement.

    They also found that victims were mostly young men assaulted by male perpetrators, making the UK something of an anomaly – globally, 80 percent of victims of acid attacks are women. Only a third of the victims knew their attackers.

    Although the researchers don’t believe any new legislation is warranted, noting that “sentencing powers reflect the severity of the crime,” they have argued in favour of more training for medical staff to support victims and encourage them to approach the police for help

    Simple deterrent, throw acid on the attackers when they're caught, problem solved. or you could be soft and feed them some of my ex wife's cooking
