The girl was awarded 390,000 kronor ($52,000) in damages for abuse and gross violation of integrity (grov fridskränkning), the Crime Victim Compensation and Support Authority (Brottsoffermyndigheten) has announced.
Then 11-years-old, the girl was taken on holiday to Somalia in 2001. While there she was subjected to genital mutilation.
She was held down by her mother and two other women while her clitoris and inner labia were removed by a man in return for payment.
The girl’s vagina was then sewn up down to the opening of her urethra. The whole procedure was conducted without anaesthetic.
