Courts FGM


COURTS FGM Advisory: The child victim in the Bristol Crown Court FGM trial which finished on Thursday is the subject of an order under Section 45 of the Youth Justice and Criminal Evidence Act. Judge Julian Lambert directed that the defendant should not be identified, as this would risk identifying the victim. Judge Lambert has also directed that the following can be reported:

:: Age of child:: Age of defendant:: That the defendant is the child’s father:: From an inner-city area of Bristol – nothing further:: The defendant at “one point” drove a private hire vehicle:: The nationality of the defendant

Judge Lambert said that anyone who reports any further details about the defendant and victim is “in grave risk that they could contravene the S45 order”.
