Stupri in Gran Bretagna

Stupri in Gran Bretagna: qualche caso

Come corollario d'oltremanica rispetto alla situazione milanese e italiana [16 luglio 2012], vediamo qualche caso di violenza sessuale sulle donne autoctone, ma non solo, ad opera di stranieri, in particolare di fede maomettana.

Il caso clamoroso, già denunciato più volte su vari siti identitari negli ultimi anni, ma evidenziato a sufficienza solo ora, riguarda un gruppo di circa nove allogeni, otto dei quali pakistani, resisi responsabili di violenza sessuale su oltre 600 ragazze minorenni bianche. Gli stupri, avvenuti nel corso di circa cinque anni, hanno riguardato ragazze per lo più ospitate in case di accoglienza per minori. Due di loro, inoltre, sarebbero morte in seguito alle violenze subite. Secondo le indagini, oltre ai nove stranieri individuati, c'è il sospetto che il gruppo sia molto più numeroso, tanto da temere che almeno alcune altre decine di individui abbia preso parte alle violenze.

Il caso esplicita in maniera tragica l'incapacità di molte società occidentali di porre un freno a forme di violenza importata da società alloctone, così come evidenzia l'incapacità di molte forze dell'ordine di rendersi conto della gravità di determinate situazioni (indipendentemente dagli autori).

Per quanto riguarda il primo punto, il procuratore Nazir Afzal, egli stesso di origini pakistane, ha posto in rilievo il "bagaglio culturale" originario dei violentatori, pur negando il carattere razziale e razzista degli atti compiuti. Altrettanto ha fatto Steve Heywood, della polizia di Manchester, negando la presenza di una motivazione razzista. Eppure, il giudice Gerald Clinton ha accusato i soggetti già arrestati di aver agito proprio a causa e in funzione della diversità etnica e religiosa delle vittime, così come alcuni politici hanno accusato la polizia britannica e gli operatori sociali di aver sorvolato sul fattore razziale per timore che il tutto si riversasse su di loro come accusa di razzismo.

Questo è un punto fondamentale: si nega il fattore etno-culturale alla base delle violenze per non apparire razzisti, ma con ciò si impedisce di riconoscere proprio il pregiudizio razzista dell'uomo di fede islamica nei confronti della donna (anche se minorenne) occidentale, impedendone di fatto il contrasto.

Non a caso, oltre alle varie testimonianze sui fatti in sé, sono state presentate anche testimonianze di ragazze che, pur denunciando i fatti ai tutori dell'ordine, non sono state credute. Le forze dell'ordine, per quieto vivere, hanno lasciato, pur essendo già venute a conoscenza di alcuni fatti, che tali ragazze venissero ancora stuprate.

Tanto può l'idiozia multietnicista e multiculturalista...

Poi, parliamoci chiaro, che razza di condanne sono state comminate? Secondo La Stampa, l'Inghilterra avrebbe circa 1600 ragazze ospitate nei centri per minori (se il dato è corretto). Significa, praticamente, che gli stupratori in questione avrebbero abusato di circa un terzo di tutto il totale, tra l'altro uccidendone due! Con quali risultati? 77 anni di carcere complessivi, che, per nove individui già condannati, significa una media di 8,5 anni a testa. Se per la Gran Bretagna questa è la giusta condanna per atti di questa portata!

Quasi nelle stesse settimane in cui la questione è esplosa, c'è stato un altro caso, meno importante da un punto di vista quantitativo, dato che le ragazze minorenni stuprate erano solo due, ma da segnalare per le motivazioni. Il caso, risalente al 2009, ha visto cinque allogeni, anch'essi sembra provenienti dall'area pakistana, violentare ripetutamente due ragazze di 15 e 16 anni, di cui non è stata specificata l'etnia, sembra con la motivazione di voler festeggiare la fine del ramadan (la festa dell'Eid). I cinque sono stati incarcerati per complessivi 38 anni, ossia 7,6 anni in media a testa. Fatte voi le proporzioni col caso precedente.

Tenete presenti alcuni dati, partendo da un rapporto aggiornato al novembre 2011 sulla violenza sulle donne e sui minori (Violence against Women and Girls Crime Report 2010-2011, Crown Prosecution Service, novembre 2011) [in PDF], così come alcuni dati sulla mutilazione genitale delle donne:

  • In Gran Bretagna, gli autoctoni sommati agli stranieri bianchi sarebbero circa il 92% degli abitanti (stando all'ultimo censimento del 2001)
  • La violenza generica contro donne e minori, vede una responsabilità degli autoctoni al 75% e, comprendendo tutti i bianchi, al 79%
  • La violenza domestica è il tipo di violenza più diffuso, essendo l'86,3% del totale
  • La violenza domestica è causata da auctoni al 76% e all'80% da bianchi
  • Gli stupri propriamente detti vedono gli autoctoni scendere al 60% e i bianchi al 66% del totale
  • Le molestie sessuali vedono gli autoctoni al 68% e i bianchi al 74% del totale
  • Riguardo altre forme di violenza, come matrimoni forzati, delitti d'onore, mutilazione genitale femminile, pedofilia e abusi sui bambini, traffico di esseri umani e prostituzione non vengono specificate le percentuali etniche, per quanto si può intuire che almeno alcuni di questi reati siano appannaggio per lo più di allogeni non-europei
  • Interessante osservare che pedofilia e abusi sui minori sono in fortissimo e costante aumento negli ultimi anni (e qui, dato che i dati etnici non vengono forniti, rimaniamo sul "chi va là"...)
  • Secondo alcune ricerche, circa 100.000 donne in Gran Bretagna avrebbero subito la mutilazione genitale, di cui 6.000 ogni anno nella sola Londra

Nel caso delle 600 ragazze stuprate, si è provato a giustificare i violentatori negandone i propositi razzisti e affermando che le loro motivazioni erano solo "predatorie". Se in una nazione dove gli allogeni non-europei potrebbero essere meno del 10%,  e dove alcuni crimini sulle donne vedono questi come autori anche al 34% e sempre almeno al 20%, parlare di semplice volontà "predatoria" è ridicolo.

C'è un problema culturale, simile a molte altre realtà europee, in cui la negazione buonista dei multiculturalisti non porterà che frutti marci. Rifiutare l'approccio buonista di costoro è un dovere civico, oltre ad essere moralmente sano.

  • "Stuprate oltre 600 minorenni" Condannata la gang dei pedofili (La Stampa, 9 maggio 2012):
Choc in Gran Bretaqna: oltre 600 ragazzine particolarmente vulnerabili - 187 negli ultimi dieci mesi - sono state sistematicamente violentate negli ultimi cinque anni da una gang di pedofili che le prelevava da case di accoglienza per minori. La sconvolgente vicenda è venuta in luce a Liverpool, in seguito alla condanna di nove uomini di origine asiatica: avrebbe, secondo il Times, dimensioni molto più vaste di quelle emerse durante il processo.

La gang finita in carcere per aver organizzato la tratta delle teen-ager era composta da britannici di origini pachistane e da un afghano in attesa di asilo. Tassisti o fattorini di take-away tra i 22 e i 59 anni sono stati condannati per stupro, traffico di minori e pedofilia per un totale di 77 anni di prigione. Le vittime erano tutte ragazzine bianche. Fuori dall’aula del processo gli estremisti della English Defense League hanno manifestato cercando di capitalizzare un successo politico sulla triste vicenda mentre voci più moderate hanno sottolineato che la maggioranza dei reati sessuali in Gran Bretagna sono commmesi da maschi bianchi. Ma c’è chi sostiene che le comunità del Nord dell’Inghilterra hanno un problema specifico, con un mix tossico di uomini alienati e ragazzine poco sorvegliate che ha reso possibile il loro sfruttamento.

Le case di accoglienza in Inghilterra ospitano 1.800 ragazze. Negli ultimi cinque anni 631 adolescenti tra i 12 e i 16 anni sarebbero state «vendute» per atti sessuali, ha scoperto il Times. Due di loro, affidate a istituzioni a Manchester e Rochdale, sarebbero morte in seguito agli stupri. Due sono rimaste incinte: una, di appena 13 anni, ha abortito. I dettagli emersi al processo sono degradanti: una ragazzina della casa di Rochdale sarebbe stata violentata da 25 uomini in una singola notte. Le ragazzine venivano adescate con la promessa di cibo, sigarette o carte di credito telefoniche, drogate o ubriacate e poi trasportate in giro in appartamenti, pub, negozi di kebab e taxi di Greater Manchester, Lancashire e West Yorkshire (nord dell’Inghilterra). «Erano terreno di caccia perchè non appartenevano alla vostra comunità, alla vostra religione», ha detto il giudice leggendo il verdetto. «Sono l’incarnazione del male», ha detto una fonte della polizia. E il peggio, si è scoperto adesso, che tanto male poteva essere evitato.

Errori delle forze dell’ordine, degli assistenti sociali e della Procura della Corona hanno fatto sì che nel 2008 la denuncia di una 15enne che era stata venduta per sesso da una gang di tassisti di Manchester non era stata creduta. Oggi dopo la condanna della gang, la Indipendent Police Compaint Commission ha deciso di vederci chiaro: come è possibile che per tanto tempo le forze dell’ordine siano state cieche davanti all’evidenza? Solo nel 2010 il procuratore Nazir Afzal ha deciso di riaprire l’inchiesta puntando i riflettori su un «bagaglio culturale importato» di uomini che considerano le donne «una specie inferiore»: la disponibilità di ragazzine bianche vulnerabili «era quel che attirava questi uomini malvagi. Questo non diminuisce di un grammo la loro colpevolezza».

  • Asian grooming gang detectives hunt for FORTY more men who may have had sex with underage girls (James Tozer + Nazia Parveen, The Daily Mail, 10 maggio 2012):
Detectives who brought down a child sex grooming ring are poised to make more arrests - as the hunt continues for more than 40 other suspected members of the gang.

Nine Asian men were yesterday jailed for a total of 77 years for raping and abusing up to 47 girls - some as young as 13 - after plying them with alcohol and luring them to takeaways.

Now police have identified four more suspects alleged to have abused the young witness whose evidence helped secure convictions at the end of the 11-week trial.

But many more remain at large as officers try to establish the real identities of men referred to in court only by nicknames such as Goofy, Ray, Juicy, Arfan, Ali, Manni, Mamma, Pino and Arfan.

The suspected abusers have proved difficult to track down and it is feared some of them have already fled the country.

But police in Greater Manchester have managed to identify four men accused of sexually abusing the main witness at a 'sex party' in 2008.

Detectives believe at least one may be in Pakistan. They expect to make arrests in the next few days but are not planning to extend the investigation abroad.

The trial heard that the men - who are all from Pakistan, apart from one who is from Afghanistan - groomed and 'shared' the young white girls because they were vulnerable.

Assistant Chief Constable Steve Heywood, of Greater Manchester Police said: 'It is not a racial issue. This is about adults preying on vulnerable young children. It just happens that in this particular area and time the demographics were that these were Asian men.'

However, the gang's ringleader yesterday branded the judge a 'racist b******' after he and eight other men were jailed.

The extraordinary outburst came after Judge Gerald Clinton accused the gang of targeting white girls because they were not part of their ‘community or religion’.

Yesterday senior politicians clashed over the case – with one former Labour MP claiming police and social workers ignored complaints because they were ‘petrified of being called racist’.

With experts on paedophilia insisting street grooming by Muslim men was a real problem, the judge made it clear he believed religion was a factor.

He jailed the 59-year-old ringleader for 19 years and eight other men for between four and 12 years, telling them they had treated their victims ‘as though they were worthless and beyond all respect’.

He added: ‘I believe one of the factors which led to that is that they were not of your community or religion.’

But he branded outbursts by some of the men claiming the prosecution was racially-motivated ‘nonsense’, telling them they found themselves in the dock because of their ‘lust and greed’.

Detective Inspector Michael Sanderson, of Greater Manchester Police, said none of the convicted men had ever shown ‘the slightest bit of remorse’.

They will be segregated from other prisoners over fears of revenge attacks.

They are being sent to prisons all over the country where they were will be placed on wings which house only paedophiles and other sex offenders. One senior prison service source said: 'They will be given vulnerable prisoner status for their own safety.'

The longest sentence of 19 years was imposed on the 59-year-old ringleader, who cannot be named for legal reasons. After a series of outbursts – including reducing a female juror to tears and insulting prosecutor Rachel Smith – he was banished from the dock.

Yesterday he refused to attend Liverpool Crown Court to hear the judge jail him for rape, aiding and abetting rape, trafficking and conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a child.

Judge Clifton said it was no wonder he had struck fear into his young victims, branding him an ‘an unpleasant, hypocritical bully’.

He said the girls had been raped ‘callously, viciously and violently’ after being attracted by ‘flattery, free food and alcohol’.

He branded allegations that the prosecution was racially-motivated ‘nonsense’ and added: ‘This was triggered by your lust and greed. These sentences would apply to all defendants whether they be white or Asian.’

Two men were acquitted on Tuesday, while a twelfth alleged gang member, Mohammed Shazad, 40, fled to Pakistan last year.

Shazad, 40, was said by the Crown to have organised the 'sex parties' at his flat in Jephys Street, Rochdale. He was arrested but jumped bail before the start of the trial and fled to Pakistan last year.

He is said to have paid taxi driver Abdul Aziz, who acted as a pimp, £30 or £40 for bringing girls to his flat for sex.

The prosecution's main witness said she went to Mr Shazad's flat on countless occasions and was forced to have sex with him each time. He also took her to another flat where she was forced to have sex with other men, she told the jurors.

Mr Shazad, who is also known as Khan and worked in a chip shop on Spotland Road, Rochdale, is said to have told reluctant girls brought to his flat: 'No sex, no money'.

Greater Manchester Police investigated a complaint by a 15-year-old victim that she had been raped in 2008, but prosecutors opted not to press charges and the abuse continued.

Police have played down the racial backgrounds of the men, saying the girls – mostly from broken or ‘chaotic’ homes – were targeted because they were vulnerable, not because they were white.

Backing them, Keith Vaz, the Labour chairman of the home affairs select committee, yesterday told the Today programme that highlighting the Pakistani origin of all but one of the gang risked giving ammunition to the far-Right.

But Martin Narey, former chief executive of children’s charity Barnardo’s, told the programme there was a ‘real problem’ which had to be confronted.

‘There is very troubling evidence that Asians are overwhelmingly represented in prosecutions for such offences,’ he said. Mr Narey added that ‘vulnerable girls on the street at night are generally white rather than more strictly-parented Asian girls’.

He was backed by Ann Cryer, a former Labour MP in Keighley, West Yorkshire. She said: ‘This is an absolute scandal.

They (the police and CPS) were petrified of being called racist and so reverted to the default of political correctness. They had a greater fear of being perceived in that light than in dealing with the issues in front of them.’

Kabeer Hassan, 25, of Oldham, was yesterday jailed for nine years for rape and conspiracy.

Abdul Aziz, 41, of Rochdale, was jailed for nine years for conspiracy and trafficking for sexual exploitation.

Abdul Rauf, 43, of Rochdale, was jailed for six years for trafficking and conspiracy. Mohammed Sajid, 35, of Rochdale, was jailed for 12 years for conspiracy, rape, sexual activity with a child and trafficking.

Adil Khan, 42, of Rochdale, was jailed for eight years for conspiracy and trafficking.

Mohammed Amin, 45, of Rochdale, was jailed for five years for conspiracy and sexual assault.

Abdul Qayyum, 44, of Rochdale, was jailed for five years for conspiracy.

Failed Afghan asylum seeker Hamid Safi, 22, of Rochdale, was jailed for four years for conspiracy and trafficking.
SHAME OF PERVERT PREACHER'S FAMILY

The family of a preacher jailed for his part in the Rochdale child sex grooming ring have spoken of their ‘terrible shame’.

Abdul Rauf, 42, was yesterday sentenced to six years after being convicted of trafficking and conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a child.

His sister Kursum Begum, 48, and her husband Hameed Khan, 60, told of their shame at the ‘disgusting’ crime and insisted it was not about race.

The couple described emotional scenes when Rauf broke down after he was charged by police fearing he was about to lose ‘everything’.

In court, Rauf admitted he had sex with an underage girl in his taxi. Another girl told the jury she had sex with him 20 or 30 times.

Mr Khan, from Rochdale, said: ‘We are ashamed - it’s a disgusting crime.’

When asked whether he thought the abuse was about race, he said: ‘It’s not just wrong because he’s Asian - it’s wrong if you are Indian, Pakistani or Muslim. It is an awful crime. Everybody knows the rules of this country - all the communities do.

‘If you do something wrong it doesn’t matter if you are white, black or Asian - wrong is wrong.

‘What he did has brought shame and everyone in the community is condemning it. Not only me, all of the community.’

Mr Khan told how Rauf, a married father-of-five, had admitted that he had been having sex with a young girl but insisted she was not underage.

When charged, Rauf broke down in tears.

Mr Khan said: ‘He was crying. He said he’d not done anything wrong and blamed his friends. He said if he hadn’t listened to other people then this wouldn’t have happened.

‘He was crying and crying - he knew he would lose everything. He was getting insulted everywhere. He couldn’t take his children to school.

‘My wife said to him: “If you don’t respect other people’s daughters how can you expect them to respect your own daughter?”’

Mrs Begum, Rauf’s sister, said all her family feel guilty about what Rauf did.

She said: ‘I’m angry - I was crying. Why did he do these things? He has brought shame on all the family. What he’s done is wrong. The law has given him punishment. It’s not my job to give him punishment but I don’t respect him like before. He’s still my brother but if he wants to talk, it won’t be like before.’

Was there a BNP mole on the jury?

At least one of the gang is to appeal against his sentence following claims that a mole in the jury room was in contact with the  British National Party.

As the jury was making their deliberations under conditions of strict secrecy, BNP leader Nick Griffin tweeted that seven of the defendants had been found guilty.

Urgent inquiries established that he was correct about the jurors’ current thinking, leading defence barristers to allege that one of their number must have been in communication with the extremists.

Mr Griffin later suggested he had heard about the verdicts on Facebook – apparently on the page of far-Right splinter group, Infidels of Great Britain.

The judge rejected a defence application to discharge the jury, saying there was no way details of their deliberations could have leaked out.

But yesterday one of the men’s solicitors insisted his right to a fair trial may have been compromised as a result and an appeal was planned.

Alias Yousaf – whose client, Adil Khan got one of the girls pregnant when she was 13 – said: ‘We are left with no option but to conclude that the confidentiality of the jury’s deliberations must have been breached and we submit the proper inference should be drawn that there must have been improper communication from within the jury room to Nick Griffin and perhaps others.’

He added that it was necessary ‘to identify the perpetrator and to hold them to account for any interference or tampering with the jury’.

Adil Khan, 42, only stopped abusing the child after six months because she got pregnant. The baby was aborted and Khan denied knowing the schoolgirl until police presented DNA evidence that proved he was the father.

In a rebuke to those who had cast aspersions on the jurors, Judge Clifton yesterday praised the ‘painstaking and conscientious’ efforts of all 12, saying the entire nation owed them gratitude.

‘Anybody who may have doubted this jury should bear in mind the way that you have analysed the evidence and returned the verdicts,’ he added.

Mr Yousaf also rounded on Merseyside Police, accusing them of failing to do enough to protect lawyers involved in the case.

They were subjected to intimidation and even violence from far-Right protesters outside  Liverpool Crown Court, causing two barristers to withdraw early in the three-month trial.

In response, Assistant Chief Constable Chris Armitt said his force’s high-profile presence outside court – at a cost of around £300,000 - had resulted in ten arrests while facilitating ‘lawful protest’.

Among those held was Liverpool’s National Front mayoral election candidate, Peter Tierney, 55. The antiques dealer was later charged with a public order offence.

Three days into the trial, a 100-strong mob attacked the takeaways in Heywood, near Rochdale, where most of the abuse had taken place. Police were pelted with bricks and windows smashed.

VICTIM, 15, REVEALS HOW SHE WAS 'LET DOWN' BY POLICE


A victim of the ring said she was 'let down' by police and the Crown Prosecution Service because the issue of Asian gangs grooming young white girls was 'unheard of' at the time.

The girl, who was 15 when she was targeted by the gang, reported the abuse to police in August 2008 but the CPS decided not to prosecute because they did not believe a jury would find her 'credible'.

After reporting the abuse she suffered for four more months at the hands of the gang and continued to be forced into having sex by her 'friend' - a teenage girl who was acting as a pimp for the men.

She said the problem got 'worse' after telling the police.

'I felt let down. But I know that they (police) believed me... but... because they said to me at the end that something should have been done but the CPS just would not - what's the word? - prosecute is it?

'It's like, then, in 2008 it weren't really heard of... Asian men with white girls.

'It was just unheard of. I've never heard of it. Now it's going on everywhere. You think of Muslim men as religious and family-minded and just nice people. You don't think... I don't know... you just don't think they'd do things like that.'

The girl, now 20, only escaped the gang in December 2008 when she fell pregnant and moved away. She was then made to wait until August 2009 for the CPS to tell her they were not taking the case to trial.

She called the men who abused her 'evil' and said she hopes they pay for their crimes.

'They ripped away all my dignity and all my last bit of self-esteem and by the end of it I had no emotion whatsoever because I was used to being used and abused daily,' she said.

'It was just blocked out, it was just like it wasn't me any more. They just took everything away and I just think hopefully they'll pay for what they've done.'

  •  Muslim gang jailed for kidnapping and raping two girls as part of their Eid celebrations (Katherine Faulkner, The Daily Mail, 20 aprile 2012):
A group of Muslim men who abducted and raped two teenage girls as part of their Eid celebrations laughed in court yesterday as they were jailed for a total of 38 years.

The girls, aged 15 and 16, were lured miles from their home to a dingy hostel.

In a horrifying weekend-long ordeal, they were plied with alcohol and repeatedly raped by two men, Shamrez Rashid and Amar Hussain, before being offered to a number of others who also ‘used them for sex’.
Ordeal: The girls, aged 15 and 16, were lured miles from their home to a dingy hostel where they were attacked

The 16-year old was forced to have sex six times with four different men.
The younger victim was raped by one man and then sexually assaulted by another.

One defendant, Rashid, 20, was said to have claimed the girls had enjoyed the sex, which he said had taken place as they celebrated the Muslim festival of Eid.

‘It was Eid,’ he said. ‘We treated them as our guests. OK, so they gave us [sex] but we were buying them food and drink.

‘They could have anything they wanted. They enjoyed it.’

His accomplice Amar Hussain, 22, claimed the girls were ‘slags’.

But Judge Melbourne Inman QC said the girls had still been children at the time of the offences.

He said it was quite obvious they had been frightened of the men, but this had had ‘no effect at all’ on their attackers’ behaviour.

‘They were still children and still living with their families,’ Judge Inman said. ‘In a civilised society, such people should be helped. You all abused them.

‘They were extremely vulnerable and you took advantage of that.’

The five defendants laughed and smirked as the horrifying details of their offences were described in court yesterday.

Rashid – who had already been found guilty of two rapes, an attempted rape, child abduction and an attempted sexual assault – grinned, laughed and made gun gestures in the dock.

His supporters in the public gallery hurled abuse at the judge as he passed sentence later.

The court heard how Rashid and Hussain drove the girls from their home in Telford in Shropshire to a Birmingham probation hostel on the evening of Saturday November 28 2009.

They took them to an unfamiliar environment so they ‘would be disorientated and reliant on them,’ prosecutors said.

After raping the girls, they ‘in effect offered them up to their friends, introducing a string of young men into the house’.

Over the following 36 hours, the girls were subjected to almost constant abuse, despite begging their attackers to stop.

The 16-year-old was left with bruising all over her face and neck after she was forced to perform a sex act on Hussain.

She was then forced to have sex with Rashid and a third man, Adil Saleem, while others watched.

The court heard how she held on to a doorframe to try to stop her attacker dragging her into a bedroom, but was pushed inside and the door locked behind her.

She was warned that her attackers were in a gang known as the B9 Crew, and that ‘when someone pressed charges against them, they went to their mother’s house, put a gun to her face and broke her jaw’.

The girls eventually ran from the hostel and called the emergency services from a payphone.

The trial at Birmingham Crown Court was the latest of several cases in which groups of men have been accused of sexually exploiting vulnerable girls.

Hussain was found guilty of child abduction and three rapes and was sentenced to 11 years in prison.

Rashid received ten years for child abduction, two rapes, an attempted rape and attempted sexual assault.

Adil Saleem, 20, was given eight years for one count of rape. Jahbar Rafiq, 28, was handed eight years for rape and sexual assault and Amer Islam Choudhrey, 20, was given 15 months for child abduction and sexual assault.

  •  100,000 British women mutilated (The Telegraph, 22 aprile 2012):
[...] Research suggests that every year up to 6,000 girls in London are at risk of the potentially fatal procedure, and more than 22,000 in the UK as a whole.

The Metropolitan Police said since 2008, it had received 166 reports of people who fear they are at risk of FGM [ossia la mutilazione genitale femminile, ndr].

It is the same story for all 43 forces across England and Wales with no convictions for the offence ever taking place, according to The Sunday Times.

The newspaper added that only two doctors have been struck off by The General Medical Council since 1980.

According to Forward, a charity which campaigners against FGM, an estimated 100,000 women in the UK have undergone mutilation. [...]
