Case Study


Victim received threatening text messages from a Tanzanian area coded number in November 2014 and chose to ignore it. Instead she changed her own phone number rather than report it.

Due to her immigration case, relying on evidence of threat of violence and FGM/FM, that prevents her from living safely in Tanzania she was advised in February 2015 when she first brought up the matter with an adviser at Halo that she should report the threat to the police.

Cleveland Police made arrangements to see the victim, however they referred the matter to the Home Office who in turn referred the matter to Birmingham Police where previous incidents of assault were reported and NFA.

Not one responsible authority investigated this separate incident of threat and no one contacted the victim who remains in fear for her life if she is returned to Tanzania.
