Sex change considered
A woman’s bid to undergo a sex change to become a man is to be examined by government officials, her lawyer has said. Ali Mohammed Al Mansouri was speaking after a hearing into the 28-year-old Emirati woman’s case in Abu Dhabi. He said he submitted medical documents he claims prove his client’s testosterone levels are similar to a man’s. A recent change in UAE law makes such a change possible. He said lawyers from the Ministry of Interior and Ministry of Health are involved. “I will press ahead and appeal if we lose the case,” he told 7DAYS after the hearing.
