We Need To Talk About This
A case of injustice
Jul 07, 2022 Season 1 Episode 11

In this episode we talk about the case of two parents who are falsely convicted of female genital cutting (FGC). After serving time in prison and thanks to investigative journalist Frederik Hugo Ledegaard, the truth comes to surface.  Jean explains the case and we discuss  the likely bias that led to this injustice. We want to amplify this family’s story to help them be exonerated and compensated. We also want to help reduce bias in future cases. We also ask - why doesn’t this injustice receive an outcry from society? Why doesn’t the media cover it? 

Full investigation can be heard on  the podcast  Det Levende Bevis:
