Am I the only one disturbed by the news of the HIV positive German pop star, Nadja Benaissa, 28 knowingly having unprotected sex with multiple lovers, one of whom contracted the disease?
According to the man, who is yet to be identified, he was informed of the singer’s condition by her aunt. Facing Benaissa in court yesterday the man stated,
“You have unleashed a lot of misery into the world.”
The singer whose been charged with grievous bodily harm and attempted aggravated assault claims she was told she could not transmit the disease.
Via a court statement, “I’d been told the likelihood of infecting someone or that I would develop [AIDS] was more or less zero. For that reason, I kept the news even from my close group of friends [as] I didn’t want my daughter to be stigmatized.”
Under German law, failure to disclose HIV/AIDS status requires a minimum of 6 months in prison. In cases where the victim dies the accused faces life imprisonment.
