I would never allow FGM on a daughter, alleged victim tells court
A mother alleged to have been subjected to female genital mutilation by a doctor in the UK has told a court she would never allow a daughter to have the same procedure.
The 26-year-old woman, who cannot be named, told Southwark crown court she had first undergone FGM in her native Somalia as a young child. Asked by Edmund Vickers, defending Hasan Mohamed, what age she had been at the time, she said: "I think six years old."
Asked for her view on FGM, she said: "It's wrong." Asked whether she would have the same done to a daughter, the woman said: "Never."
