Egypt Army Court Acquits Doctor Over Virginity Test, A military court acquitted
an army doctor on Sunday charged with carrying out a forced
virginity test on a female detainee during protests last year,
said a court source, in a case that has fuelled anger against
the ruling generals.

Activist Samira Ibrahim, who defied taboos in the
conservative Muslim country to raise her case, said she was
forced to undergo a virginity test in March last year after she
was arrested during a protest in Cairo’s Tahrir Square.

Ibrahim’s and similar cases stoked criticism of the generals
who took control of Egypt after Hosni Mubarak was driven from
office on Feb. 11, 2011 by a popular uprising.

“The army doctor Ahmed Adel was found not guilty in the case
of virginity tests because of conflicting witness accounts,”
said the military judicial source, who asked not to be named.
