Egypt court sentences four gays to prison

Post by DJKeefy » Tue Apr 08, 2014 2:57 pm

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

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.

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.

I suppose that imprisoning gay men is a bit like sending a fat kids to a sweet factory... :tk
