Piacenza – The father of the two girls residing in Piacenza, subjected to the practice of infibulation in their country of origin, was arrested by the carabinieri. The Piacenza newspaper Libertà reports this. The pre-trial detention measure was carried out several weeks ago, the case dates back to the beginning of the summer.
Infibulation, the practice of female genital mutilation, it is prohibited and punished by the Italian penal code even if the offense is committed abroad. The man had taken advantage of a travel to Africa during the summer to subject the girls to infibulation. To report the story were the doctors of the Piacenza ASL who had visited the girls. Prosecutor and carabinieri, who are investigating, keep the case strictly confidential.
The case has raised a wave of indignation in the city and beyond: “The case of the two infibulated girls discovered in Piacenza is the umpteenth story of abuse of foreign minors in Italy for tribal customs or religious precepts that cannot be tolerated in our country. In particular, female genital mutilation is a brutal practice and prohibited in Italy by law that is often circumvented by practicing interventions in the country of origin as in this case. Unfortunately, Piacenza is not an isolated case, as the medical authorities often report. When we are indignant about the condition of women in Afghanistan, we often forget that we have had the Taliban at home for some time, even if we don’t like to talk about them so as not to disturb the politically correct climate and the multiculturalist narrative “. Thus the deputies of the Lega Elena Murelli, elected in Piacenza, and Laura Cavandoli from Parma, president of the parliamentary commission of inquiry on activities connected with family-type communities that welcome minors.
