FGM ‘victim’ tells court how she begged her dad to stop the ‘terrible thing

A woman has revealed how she begged her father to stop the ‘terrible thing’ as he used a razer blade to cut her private parts. The teenager, who cannot be identified, claims she was just ten years old when her private parts were sliced with a razor blade as a punishment on two separate occasions. She told the Old Bailey that her father, a 50 year-old devout Christian, ignored her pleas and even ‘egged’ on the person cutting her at their family home in south London.


The alleged victim said: ‘I was asked to lie down on a mat. I knew what was going to happen. I was begging stop, stop doing it because it was really painful. It did bleed a lot as well. ‘He wouldn’t listen. He would still encourage the person to do it. He just gave the person a signal to keep on doing it. I could feel the really deep cuts inside. I was just supposed to take it.’ She said she was not given any painkilling drugs and felt pain when she sat down or urinated in the days afterwards. The teenager said she didn’t understand what was really happening at the time because of her age.


he said: ‘I would do something wrong and he would threaten me with it. He accused me of quite a lot of things I never did. A large sum of money went missing and I swear I never took it.’ She said she was cut twice in the same year and was later threatened with it without it happening.
