Request of Petra Bayr and her colleagues to the Federal Minister for Internal Affairs concerning the announced package of measures against female genital mutilation.
Anfrage der Abgeordneten Petra Bayr und Genossinnen an die Bundesministerin für Inneres betreffend des angekündigten Maßnahmenpaketes gegen weibliche Genitalverstümmelung
This request focuses on various elements of the announced package of measures against FGM:
The resolution focused on how to anchor FGM in the asylum procedures (laws) and entered into force on 01.01.2006. It enhanced the rights of victims of violence and extended the limitation period for genital mutilation (limitation period of 3 years should begin to run when the victims becomes 18 years).
The "reporting database on cases of forced marriage and genital mutilation" was set up in March 2006 and is available online at: www.htp datenbanken.at (it has not been continued).
The Medical Education Regulations was readopted in 2006.
