The Government has reached a settlement with Joanne Cassar, who had taken Malta before the European Court of Human Rights when she was banned from marrying after having had a sex-change operation. Informed sources said the government will amend the law that could ultimately lead to her being allowed to marry a man. The 31-year-old hairdresser told the European Court that Malta had breached her rights by refusing to issue marriage banns after her gender was changed to female on her birth certificate. When contacted by, Civil Liberties Minister Helena Dalli confirmed that the new Labour Government was planning to reach an agreement with Ms Cassar over her court case and amend the law.
