I’ve never heard of Nadja Benaissa, have you? She’s some pop singer in Germany.
She’s also facing up to 10 years in prison.
An ex-lover of Nadja Benaissa has come forth saying that he is HIV positive, and that he got it from Nadja.
Infecting a lover with HIV is not illegal in and of itself. What is illegal is not telling that lover that you are HIV positive. And in Germany, apparently, not coming clean about your HIV status can get you ten years behind bars.
Nadja Benaissa was arrested as she was preparing to give a performance, and is accused of having unprotected sex with three people without telling them she is HIV positive. She was remanded in custody after a judge ruled that letting her loose would create a danger of her repeating her alleged crime.
According to the public prosecutor’s office in Darmstadt, Nadja Benaissa is continuing to be held in police custody because of the “urgent suspicion that the accused had unprotected sexual intercourse with three people in the years 2004 and 2006 without telling them beforehand that she was HIV positive.”
Law & Order SVU did a show a few years ago about some guy that knew he was HIV positive and didn’t care one bit that he was possibly infecting all the girls he was sleeping with. I can’t remember how it ended, but I’m sure the good guys won.
Personally, I think if someone knows that they are HIV positive and they have unprotected sex without telling the other person that they’re positive, they should be charged with attempted murder – at the very least.
How dare they take away another person’s right to make an informed decision.
She may did not know that She is HIV postive ?
This should be a wake up call to those who [don’t] think HIV/AIDS have a face. Some people may think beautiful people are not capable of getting the virus or that positive people look sickly. I pray for her victims and her too because she’s also a victim.
She knew she was HIV positive – that’s the point, and that’s what makes it a crime. She knew she had the disease but she did not tell her sexual partners.
Why arrest just before a show? Was she at risk of having unprotected sex on stage during her performance? Can’t a cop wait until after the show instead of annoying a room full of paying customers? It’s no laughing matter, but she is not a convict, and this is 3 years after the last alleged crime occurred.
That episode of Law and Order SVU scared the @@@@ out of me because everyone was getting AIDS – and it was at a school in New York (and possibly based on SOME truthful events).
OH JESUS @@@@!
