The practice of female genital mutilation, imported into Britain along with masses of non-White invaders occupying large parts of that country, have driven the British Police to offer substantial financial rewards for informers whose information might lead to the first conviction for that practice.
The Metropolitan Police are offering a 20,000-pound (US$40,000) reward for information leading to Britain's first prosecution for female genital mutilation, Detective Chief Superintendent Alastair Jeffrey said. Police say they do not have comprehensive statistics about the number of victims. But midwife Comfort Momoh, who specializes in treating them at London hospitals and clinics and who works with police, told the news conference she treats 400-500 victims every year.
Arranging or carrying out the procedure -- in Britain or abroad -- is a criminal offense punishable by up to 14 years in prison, but no one has been prosecuted since it was banned under British law in 2003, Jeffrey said. The fact that non-Whites are involved in the practice means that the police are always scared of being called “racist” should they act against the perpetrators. Police estimate up to 66,000 non-White invader girls in Britain face the risk of genital mutilation.
Jeffrey said the timing of the campaign was “so we can get in before the summer holidays, a time when young girls are taken abroad and subjected to genital mutilation," he told a news conference.
Between 100 million and 140 million women are believed to have been subjected to the practice in Africa and an additional 3 million girls face the threat of female genital mutilation every year, according to UNICEF.
