– ROME, AUGUST 12 – The Indonesian army has put an end to a controversial practice of virginity tests on aspiring cadets. The CNN reports, citing the chief of staff of the country’s armed forces.

The tests, which doctors subjected to female recruits, also ended up in the crosshairs of Human Rights Watch (HRW) which conducted investigations in 2014 and 2015 and has repeatedly appealed for the banning of the practice. (HANDLE).
