Gay Egyptian men get 8 years in prison, forced to undergo medical tests to confirm homosexuality

Share:

egyptian referendumA court in Egypt sentenced four men to up to eight years in prison on Monday for practicing homosexuality, a judicial official said.

Those accused of homosexuality are often forced to undergo medical tests to establish they are “habitual” gays, a practice rights groups have decried as abusive.

Prosecutors had accused the men of holding “deviant parties” and dressing in women’s clothes.

Three were sentenced to eight years and the fourth to three years in prison.

Prosecutors have used a law banning “debauchery” to try homosexuals in the past.

Homosexuality is not tolerated across the Middle East and much of Africa.

    Well, they all have their pinkies out. Is that, like, the ‘medical’ test??
    Or do the prison guards check first to see if the ‘path’ is open and well-worn before handing them over to the other prisoners?
    I’m sure it’s one place that ‘Yallah Condoms’ could set up a commissary for the ‘legal beagals’.

    The barbarism of the Egyptians is strong, they’re a particularly nasty bunch when it comes to human rights. Thank god the Lebanese managed to do something right and take the heat of homosexuals. The verdict was only read a month or so ago but still progressive for the east.

    And ‘Justice’ in Pakistan today arrested and finger-printed a 9-MONTH-OLD boy, charged with something like stealing gas, along with his father and uncle. Hmmmm …. I wonder if they are Talibani cops?

    I’m sure they can all blame it on the mother, anyway. After all, she hasn’t even taught him to hold his bottle properly yet.
