2nd doctor, wife charged in female genital mutilation case

Source: Freep

For the second time in a week, authorities have charged a Detroit area doctor with breaking a federal genital mutilation law, this time arresting a suburban physician and his wife for allegedly helping another doctor perform genital cutting on 7-year-old girls in a Livonia clinic.

According to a criminal complaint unsealed today, while the doctor removed parts of the girls' genitals, the wife of the clinic owner held the girls' hands "in order to comfort them."

Two months later, she and her husband were arrested.

Charged are Dr. Fakhruddin Attar, 53, and his wife, Farida Attar, 50, both of Livonia, who were arrested this morning on charges of conspiring to perform genital mutilation on minor girls by letting a doctor use their clinic to perform the procedure. According to a criminal complaint unsealed today, Attar owns the Burhani Medical Clinic in Livonia, where prosecutors say two Minnesota girls had their genitals mutilated in February by Dr. Jumana Nagarwala, who was charged last week in what is the nation's first federal prosecution of genital cutting. She was arrested April 12 and ordered jailed pending the outcome of her case involving the two Minnesota girls, though the FBI believes she has several more victims.

...

According to the complaint, Attar has admitted to authorities that Nagarwala has used his clinic after hours to treat children ages 6-9 for problems with their genitals, including genital rashes, but that she only saw the patients "when the clinic is closed on Friday evenings or Saturdays." She never billed for the procedures nor documented them, the complaint said, noting multiple other young girls have told authorities that Nagarwala also performed gender mutilation on them.

2. I'm really done

with women and girls being treated like dirt. I've fucking had it. This is so wrong on a million levels. Throw the book at these butchers. I am still stunned that in 2017 we have to fight for basic human rights.

4. I'll continue to reiterate - they need to prosecute the parents

alongside the doctors performing these procedures.

5. I don't know if you followed this link in the article:

Minnesota girl in mutilation case allowed back with parents

MINNEAPOLIS A Minnesota girl who prosecutors say was taken to Michigan for a genital mutilation procedure has been allowed to return to her parents.

The girl is one of two Minnesota 7-year-olds who told authorities their mothers brought them to a Michigan clinic to see Dr. Jumana Nagarwala for the procedure. Nagarwala faces federal charges.

Court documents show one girl was removed from her suburban Minneapolis home but allowed to return last week with conditions. Among them, the parents must get her medical and psychiatric care and must submit to home visits by a social worker.

7. Might not be popular here

But the doctors, parents and any other adults in the know should serve the maximum sentence. The kid forever removed from the home. And any who are not citizens deported to their country of origin after serving their sentence.

There are just some people we do not need here.
