**PRESS STATEMENT**

FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION – WE CANNOT IGNORE IT
‘The recent press coverage surrounding the case of Pamela Izevbekhai and her two young daughters, Naomi (7 years old) and Jemima (5 years old), is a distressing reminder of the barbaric practice of female genital mutilation (FGM). The Government needs to realise that FGM is not just a problem in some far away land and this week’s press coverage only proves
that this problem won’t go away.
