British Doctor Denies Carrying Out FGM

A doctor and a second man facing the UK’s first prosecution linked to alleged female genital mutilation have denied any wrongdoing.

Dr Dhanuson Dharmasena, 32, from the Whittington Hospital in north London, is accused of having carried out the procedure on a woman who gave birth in November 2012.

Appearing at the Old Bailey today, he denied having committed an offence under the Female Genital Mutilation Act.

A second man, who cannot be named, also denied aiding, abetting, counselling or procuring the doctor to commit the offence.

He also entered a not guilty plea to encouraging the commission of an offence. The men will face trial on January 13 at Southwark Crown Court.
