MLA Jo-Anne Dobson has called on Executive Ministers to work together to combat what she has described as the ‘abhorrent crime’ of female genital mutilation (FGM).

The Upper Bann MLA hosted an event at Stormont aimed at raising awareness of the issue and said: “The effects of this crime last a lifetime and they impact on both the physical and mental health of babies and young girls.”

The event was organised by African & Caribbean Support NI (ACSONI) alongside local representatives from Barnardos & NSPCC.
