EGYPT WOMEN’S NGO TAKES PRO-FGM PARLIAMENTARIAN TO COURT
Egypt MP Azza el-Garf publicly supports FGM, and is being sued by a local women's org.
Egypt’s New Women Foundation said they are suing Islamist Parliament member Azza al-Garf over her pro-female genitals mutilation (FGM) statements. The women’s rights foundation sent a letter to the speaker of parliament Saad al-Katatny, informing him of legally going after Garf and asking for his permission to be allowed to take the MP to court.
The parliament needs to lift immunity for an MP in order for them to be held accountable in a court of law.
