"A 56-year-old is due to face Burwood Local Court today after being charged with two counts of accessory after the fact of female genital mutilation.

A 42-year-old man and two women, aged 35 and 68, have all been charged with two counts of female genital mutilation.

The illegal procedure was allegedly performed on the two girls when they were six and seven, respectively.

The 68-year-old woman is alleged to have performed the operation.

Female circumcision involves cutting all or part of the external parts of the genitals. It is both illegal to perform in NSW, or to take victims overseas for the procedure."

Yes, if convicted, life sentences in prison, and perhaps castration for the fellow.
