UK Lawyers Bring First Prosecutions for Female Genital Mutilation
by Timur Moon
Prosecutors in Britain are to bring charges against suspected perpetrators of genital mutilation, in the first such cases in British legal history.
The Crown Prosecution Service is deliberating over four new criminal cases, along with four previous cases which lie on file.
A further 15 cases have been reported to police by children's charity the National Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC).
