    [02] Police give name, photo of HIV-infected woman charged with prostitution

    AMNA / Greek Police (EL.AS) on Sunday took the unprecedented decision to announce the name and photograph of an HIV-injected 22-year-old woman who allegedly worked as a prostitute.

    According to reports, the woman, a Russian national, was arrested in an illegal brothel in the centre of the city.

    A press release by police said publication of her name and photograph aims to protect public health, combat instances of HIV-infected individuals working in the sex trade and to dissuade similar behaviour.

    Additionally, authorities called on men who believe they may have had sex with the specific woman to immediately seek HIV testing.

    The suspect has been charged with felonious bodily injury and a handful of misdemeanors related to illegal prostitution. She was remanded in custody. amna
