An Australian father has been charged with organising the female genital mutilation of his baby daughter.

The Sydney man had his then nine-month-old girl circumcised while abroad in February 2012, police allege.

They were alerted six months later after the girl’s mother took her to the doctor.

It is unclear in what country the alleged procedure took place.

Following investigations, the father was arrested on Tuesday and charged with procuring female genital mutilation.

He will face Manly Local Court on January 28
