SPAIN: Spanish Judge Tries To Protect Girl From Genital Mutilation
This decision also coincides with another controversial case last December in which a court in Barcelona decided to take away the custody of two Gambian girls aged 6 and 13 from their parents resident in PremiÓ de Dalt based on fears that they could also be subjected to female circumcision following suspicions raised by the school attended by the girls.
However, last week another court decided to return the custody of the girls to their parents although this time they will share custoday with the Catalan department for the care of children. Further cautionary measures have been imposed under which no member of the family is allowed to leave Spain or apply for new passports and they must allow their daughters have regular medical examinations.
