24,000 UK Islamic women at risk from Female Genital Mutilation, so why no prosecutions in 27 years?

November 26, 2012

What is the point of having laws to protect the vulnerable when nobody is prosecuted for the offences?

Despite FGM being illegal in the UK for 27 years there have been no prosecutions for it, despite evidence of it continuing.

In Bradford alone 120 women have already suffered FGM.  This article from the Bradford Telegraph and Argus makes for horrific reading.  

“Young girls are being subjected to life-threatening genital mutilation at the hands of their own families with police warning they will investigate any suspected cases of the barbaric practice.

A task group of GPs, school nurses and midwives, has now been set up in Bradford to raise awareness of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) – a practice which involves the partial or total removal of the external female genital organs for cultural reasons, sometimes carried out with rusty razors.

FGM is prevalent in 28 African countries and it is estimated more than 20,000 girls under 15 are at high risk of FGM with 66,000 women in the UK, including an estimated 120 women in Bradford being seen by healthcare professionals at Bradford Royal Infirmary in the last 18 months.

It is believed FGM happens in the UK as well as overseas, often in the family’s country of origin, when girls of school age are often taken overseas during the school summer holidays.

Now health care workers in Bradford are being trained to ask women about FGM, who may either want, or be under pressure to have FGM performed on their own daughters.”

The Guardian also highlights the lack of prosecutions

It appears that although FGM is an illegal act, fear of offending the Bearded Savages may well have inhibited prosecutors from dealing with this disgusting and misogynistic activity.
