Egypt: One step forward towards justice, two steps back
Source:The International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission (IGLHRC)
More convictions for homosexual conduct in Egypt as jailed teenager is freed.
Just one day before a Cairo court released from jail a teenager imprisoned for alleged homosexual conduct, two Egyptian university students were sentenced to one year in prison for allegedly advertising for homosexual contacts over the Internet. The International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission (IGLHRC) is investigating the case. IGLHRC is gravely concerned that this case may represent renewed harassment of suspected homosexuals in Egypt.
