Today I was at the Thames Magistrates Court in London, where a couple of African heritage were charged with the genital mutilation of a three-year-old in their care.
The story is revolting: It allegedly involves a botched FGM procedure, lying to the authorities about how it happened, emergency surgery… and even child/animal pornography.
Amazingly, too, this kind of crime has only gone to court three times since 1985 when FGM was outlawed. So how come charities know that more than 130,000 other victims are out there in England and Wales, with no justice?
And out the media outlets there, and those that picked up the story today, only Rebel Media is willing to ask: WHY is this happening?
Why isn’t our government doing more about this?
And why are so many victims so terrified of speaking out?
