Five new cases of a Lebanese doctor using a widely discredited "test" for homosexuality have emerged, despite clear previous instructions from the Lebanese Order of Physicians banning the use of an anal exam that it deemed to constitute "torture".The forensic doctor, who is identified only by his initials A.M. in this month's edition of the "Legal Agenda," was hired by the judicial police's Moral Protection Bureau in January to determine the sexuality of five Lebanese and Syrian men accused of being gay, which remains a criminal offense in Lebanon.
