Man fails in bid to be legally declared a woman

KUALA TERENGGANU: A medical assistant failed in his bid to be declared a woman, when his application for a gender change was rejected by the High Court here Monday.

Mohd Ashraf Hafiz Abd Aziz, 26, also wanted his name changed on his birth certificate and MyKad to Aleesha Farhana Abd Aziz.

Justice Datuk Mohd Yazid Mustafa, in rejecting Mohd Ashraf's application, said there was no legal statute to grant such an application based on the factor of a sex-change operation.

He added the plaintiff did not satisfied three other criteria for being declared a woman - chromosome count, and exterior as well interior organs.
