Re F and X (Children)

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. The case concerned proceedings, under the court's inherent jurisdiction and under the Female Genital Mutilation Act 2003, in respect of two children. A female genital mutilation protection order had been made in the standard terms and the children had been made wards of court. The mother was directed to take all reasonable steps to arrange for the children's return from Sudan to the United Kingdom. By the time of the present hearing, the mother accepted that she had not complied with the order. The Family Division made an order, which was to include provisions identified by the parties concerning arrangements to facilitate the children's return.
