(Feb 02, 2008) On January 5, 2008, an Egyptian court sentenced a police major, Yousri Ahmed Issa, to five years in prison and two police officers to one year each for parading a male detainee up and down a street after forcing him to wear women's underwear. A judicial official said Issa arrested the detainee for asking Issa to move his car in April 2007, while the detainee was working at a car park in Alexandria. The officer considered the request an insult and is said to have attempted to force the detainee to confess to a robbery. (Egypt Police Officer Jailed 5 Years, ASSOCIATED PRESS, Jan. 6, 2008.)
