Newstalk is reporting just now that the Irish Independent and the Mirror have an explosive story on the case of Nigerian asylum-seeker Pamela Izevbekhai's claims that her child died of FGM. According to the report, her doctor is now admitting that the story was invented and the child did not exist. If this is indeed true (and why would the doctor lie), then once and for all it demonstrates the ludicrity of the way in which the Leinster House liberals have been flocking to her cause like ducks to water in the name of a pack of lies. That someone would invent such a lie, being as the subject-matter is so traumatic and distressing, aswell as harming the cause of those who are genuinely threatened and victimised by FGM, is in itself an affront to the morality of all right-thinking people. And if true, it strengthens further the necessity for this woman to be deported. She has had her claims assessed by the authorities and the politicians have now had themselves made fools of by the revelations in today's Irish Mirror. Shame.
The Irish Independent security correspondant is on Newstalk elaborating on this now.
