Homosexual HIV+ Arrests Continue in Egypt

 

Further arrests of HIV male suspects were carried out by Egyptian police, bringing the total number of recent arrests to 12. The arrests started October 2007 when a man who was arrested said he was HIV positive & was taken to the Public Morality police.

2 of the 4 newly-detained males tested positive. According to Human Rights Watch, HIV-positive Egyptian males are detained, interrogated about other suspects, undergo physical abuse, chained to hospital beds and forced to undergo virus related tests.

As there are no specific laws against homosexuality, rulings are based on other laws including obscenity & prostitution. Human right activists warned that the arrests & treatment of homosexuals will have an adverse effect on Egypt’s fight against HIV.

  Pathetic  
 
is all i have to say.

Oh, and can an admin please fix the drop down menu for "egypt" (not "eygpt") in the regional drop down menu?
Thanks!

  yeah...  
 
this will just discourage homosexuals from seeking and treatment to any STIs they may contract. Appalling behaviour.

SHEER IGNORANCE. Do they think that HIV is solely spread via sexual contact? What ignorant pigs.

  Although  
 
I detest the treatment of these people I do quite like the idea of a morality police.

Providing they start from some actual useful moral place (Unlike it seems in Egypt) I think they would make the world a better place.

  What's next?  
 
Rounding up everyone with herpes? Imprisioning everyone with syphilis?

What are the Eygptians going to do when they start coming for the people with cold sores?

  Why do these morons  
 
think it only are gay folks who contract aids?

Even so one shouldn't be arrested for having an illness.

What a f***ed up wolrd we live in.

  Sounds familiar  
 
Hmmm... does this mean the redneck virus of the southern USA has spread to Egypt. You know the one that clouds the mind and reduces the IQ to a point where they believe all HIV positives are Homosexual. Sorry but I am a biggot and have real problems with stupidity found primarily in those who's battle cry is Get-er-done.

I'm sorry to say, that if someone knows they have a STD and they don't tell their partner (hopefully opposite sex) of their condition, and their partner catches it, they should be forced to an examination and have it released as public domain so they next person won't be infected by their irresponsibilities. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to check upon your new girl friend to make sure they have nothing you can catch. Or even vise versa.

Look at MJ (Magic Johnson) who slept with over 1000 woman, just to find out he has Aids. Look at how many lives that potentially could destroy. If everyone had their medical history as public domain, then everyone would be embarrassed equally. LOL

  I can’t...  
 
for the life of me with all the information we have have to day believe people could be this ignorant!

Em... Sorry mate but no that doesnt sound good at all.
It implies a complete lack of trust in your partner. I would like to think that i'm a good enough judge of character that i can trust my girlfriends to tell me if they have an STD. If you're unsure or its just a one night stand then use protection.
It would also lead to people abusing the system and researching everyone they know, this would then cause people to be outcast/ridiculed for things that are no-one's business but their own.
