Human Rights Commission intervenes in Caster Semenya court challenge

The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) will be joining an international forum in a legal case.

It has been granted access by the European Court of Human Rights to intervene as a third party in Caster Semenya’s challenge of regulations that impact her competing on the international stage.

Semenya lodged an application with the court in February against regulations that require her to lower her natural testosterone levels through hormone treatment. The SAHRC believes World Athletics’ Differences of Sex Development regulations are discriminatory based on race and gender.

The Commission has been granted leave to make written submissions to the European Court of Human Rights by 12 October.
