THE National Crime Agency (NCA) are currently involved in the ongoing case of child cruelty against two parents relating to alleged botched circumcisions.

The parents, who cannot be named to protect the identities of the children, are charged with two counts each of wilfully neglecting the children in a manner likely to cause unnecessary suffering or injury to health on November 4, 2020.

On Monday at Enniskillen Magistrates Court, a Public Prosecution Representative said that the NCA were involved with the PSNI and they required a report from a circumcision expert and a paediatric expert. These reports were expected to take four to six weeks to complete.

They added that all information from the PSNI was to be sent to the experts this week.

The three-month-old boys were first taken by ambulance to the South West Acute Hospital (SWAH), before being transferred to intensive care in the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast.

A third person was arrested several days later and released, pending a report to the PPS.

The case was adjourned until April 12 for review.
