Gavel: The execution and procedure of virginity tests on women inside military prisons must be stopped

In the Case of Samira Ibrahim the Court ordered that the execution and procedure of virginity tests on women inside military prisons be stopped. The Court held that the conduct of the armed forces in relation to the virginity test is groundless and violates the Constitutional Declaration and the laws and represents a profane to the females bodies sanctity and a violation to their Human Dignity. (Egypt, Cairo Administrative Court, 2011-12-01 )

The decision was taken by Judge:

  • Aly Fekry
