Female Genital Mutilation is one of the more despicable crimes introduced into the West along with all the other dubious ‘benefits’ of ‘diversity’. Yet despite there being an estimated 5,000 cases in Britain every single year, it is only now that the first person in the country to be found guilty of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) has actually been brought to justice.
The victim’s Ugandan mother was prosecuted under FGM laws after using a ‘witch’ to help her carry out the barbaric surgery at her home in Walthamstow, east London.
The girl, now five, told police she was pinned down while a woman they called a witch mutilated her.
The girl’s Ghanaian father, 43, was also prosecuted but was cleared of all charges at the Old Bailey today. Neither parent can be named for legal reasons.
The girl was told to say she had injured herself on a cupboard door after climbing on to a work surface to get biscuits when she was interviewed by social workers, the Old Bailey heard.
When officers searched the mother’s home in east London, they found cows’ tongues and evidence of spells and curses in the freezer, the jury heard.
Prosecutor Caroline Carberry QC said the mother had an interest in witchcraft. Her spells targeted social workers, police in the case and even the Director of Public Prosecutions, Alison Saunders.
Describing the items found in the kitchen freezer, she said: ‘Two cow tongues, they were bound in wire with nails and a small blunt knife also embedded in them, 40 limes were found and other fruit which when opened contained pieces of paper with names on them. These people were to ‘shut up’ and ‘freeze their mouths’.’
The mother, who is a convicted benefits cheat, had even taken a picture of her handiwork – and sent it to a prospective boyfriend in Africa.
She wept in the dock today as she was found guilty of the charge.
Judge Mrs Justice Whipple warned of a ‘lengthy’ jail term as she remanded the woman into custody ahead of sentencing on March 8.
She believed the nails hammered into the frozen cow’s tongue would freeze their mouths.
However, the court heard FGM would need more than one person to do it, although police have not identified anyone else in the case.
The father told jurors he accepted his partner’s explanation at first but now accepted she had been cut.
Detective Chief Inspector Ian Baker, of the Met’s child abuse and sexual offences command, said: ‘We cannot lose sight this is a case about a very young girl who was subjected to horrific abuse at the hands of two defendants, her parents.
Just another day in multi-cult Paradise!
