10th December 2013 - Met chief Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe calls for shake-up to tackle FGM- Evening Standard


Scotland Yard chief Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe has called for all MPs to watch our channel 4 documentary The Cruel Cut.

He says “It’s incredibly powerful about what FGM actually is, not what is the theory, but what actually happens, which is a pretty horrible thing,” he said. “I have met Leyla Hussein and we are going to work together to see what we can do about getting a prosecution, particularly around cutters, the people who commit this horrible thing either abroad or at home.”
