Egypt doctor jailed for gay sex

On Feb 16, 2016 Gay Star News reported: A doctor has been jailed in Egypt for gay sex.
The man, who has not been named, was sentenced to one year in prison with labor by a Cairo court on the accusation of ‘practicing homosexual activity,’ reported local newspaper Youm7.
According to the report, the doctor was arrested after the morality police were tipped off to a WhatsApp group he had allegedly created to attract men who ‘want to practice immorality.’
Homosexuality is not specifically outlawed in Egypt, but gay men are often charged under vague public morality laws with punishments of up to 17 years imprisonment with or without hard labor.
