no veil

Veil manToday's news from News.com.au. A “fiancee” was actually a man. He has been hiding behind the veil, but no one can tell. How could people issue driver's license and passports to those who refuse to reveal the face for identity?

From 'Fiancee' actually a man (News.com.au, 23 Dec 2005):

'Fiancee' actually a man
December 23, 2005

AN Egyptian man discovered on his wedding day that his fiancee of three years was a man who had been concealing his identity behind a veil.

The 26-year-old groom-to-be, Tamer Shehata, was notified by a female guest attending his wedding that his would-be wife was a man in women's clothing.
When Mr Shehata confronted his fiancee, he broke down and revealed that he was actually an 18-year-old man called Ahmed Abo Zeid.

Mr Abo Zeid confessed that he had tried several times to undergo a sex change but had failed to secure doctors' approval.

Mr Abo Zeid, whose face was obscured to Mr Shehata by a niqab or burka (face veil) said he had intended to tell after they were married, and had hoped to convince Mr Shehata to consummate the marriage.

Mr Abo Zeid was held for 45 days on charges of swindling and posing as a woman.
