Legislation: proposition that the term 'female circumcision' is replaced by 'genital mutilation of women'. Fine will ni longer be a punishment (the crime is too serious). More severe penalties for breaking the law were imposed. Also attempts, preparations, conspiracy and failure to report crimes should be treated as criminal liability. The document has several pages on FGM where all aspects are discussed, also preventive work such as the moulding of opinion among immigrants. The question of double criminality is raised.
