The Serious Crime Act 2015: the new FGM provisions

Highly informative and interesting article by Cris McCurley and Zimran Samuel on the new FGM provisions as brought into being by the Serious Crime Act 2015. The authors point that in spite of FGM being a criminal offence, there has as yet to be a successful prosecution of FGM. The new provisions enable concerned parties intending to protect potential victims of FGM to apply for FGM protection orders. The article provides a useful summary on the practice and procedure for making such an application.
