Oh, but it's still a military dictatorship...
Oh well, Rome wasn't built in a day, the same applies to the new democracy in Egypt.
In related news, it seems arbitrary exercise of power by the security forces is not just swept under the carpet, but is now addressed by the country's judicial system:
"A Cairo court has ordered forced virginity tests on female detainees in military prisons to be stopped.
The court made the decision after a case was brought by protester Samira Ibrahim.
She accused the Egyptian army of forcing her to undergo a virginity test after she was arrested during a protest in Tahrir Square in March.
"The court orders that the execution of the procedure of virginity tests on girls inside military prisons be stopped," judge Aly Fekry, head of Cairo administrative court said, according to Reuters."
