UNIVERSAL PERIODIC REVIEW​ - EGYPT: REFUSES TO PROTECT OR EVEN RECOGNIZE THE RIGHTS OF LGBTIQ+ PEOPLE.

Today 12 March 2020: In its replies to the many recommendations received from several countries during the third cycle of Universal Periodic Review (UPR), Egypt did not accept to protect or even recognize the rights of LGBTIQ+ people.

In its response to recommendations, Egypt said that "It does not recognize the terms in these recommendations."

It is worth noting that the recommendations were as follows:

 

-Canada: Take steps to protect the rights of LGBTI individuals and ensure that they are not subject to discriminatory arrest or prosecution under criminal charges of indecency or debaucher
-
Iceland: End the arrest and prosecution of people for their real or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity and repeal laws criminalizing consensual same-sex relations
-
Netherlands: End the practice of entrapment and subsequent arrest and prosecution based on sexual orientation and gender identity


ANKH association had issued a statement prior to the universal periodic review session on the 13th of last November, containing a number of recommendations related to the LGBTIQ+ community and people living with HIV, and Ankh worked with partners in Geneva to mobilize these recommendations with the official delegations from different countries during the session.
