MINISTER for women and children has filed a complaint with the United Nations over how Caster Semenya's case has been handled by the International Association of Athletics Federations.
Noluthando Mayende-Sibiya says the international athletics governing body failed to safeguard the confidentiality of the runner, whose gender has been questioned.
She says they showed "blatant disregard" for Semenya's human dignity. The complaint made on Monday asked the UN Division for the Advancement of Women to investigate the matter.
The International Association of Athletics Federations has refused to confirm or deny Australian media reports sayingtests show that the women's 800m world champion has male and female characteristics. - Sapa-AP
