Egypt court clears 'virginity test' doctor

The doctor accused of conducting forced virginity tests on female protesters rounded up by the military is acquitted.



    An Egyptian military doctor has been acquitted of forcing female protesters to undergo virginity tests.

    "I've been vilified by the media, only one side was represented and I couldn't say anything because I was a conscript.

    "The plaintiff’s allegations are nonsense, I have been waiting for this fair verdict," said Ahmed Adel the doctor accused of conducting forced virginity tests on female protesters rounded up by the military last year.
     
    17 women said they had been violated while in military custody after rallies held last March.
     
    Rawya Rageh was one of the few journalists in court to hear the ruling.
