Sex change con­sid­ered

7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

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.
