    [02] AIDS trial behind closed doors, Court decides

    Larnaca, May 27 (CNA) -- The trial of a 28-year-old Cypriot, who has tested HIV positive and is accused of having unprotected sex, will be held behind closed doors, the Larnaca District court announced today.

    It said the Attorney General's office will be issuing press releases on the course of the trial in order to protect the identity of the two women involved in the case.

    The Court decided to hold the trial away from the limelight to protect the private lives of the two women, who are married with children.

    The 28-year-old, from the southern coastal town of Larnaca, is standing trial on two charges, having unprotected sex and not informing his partners about his condition.

    The accused found out about his condition after donating blood in October 1993.

    A third woman who had originally accused the waiter of having unprotected sex with her withdrew the charges and returned to her country, Norway.
