Singapore authorities announced last month that there was a confidential data on 14,200 people who have been infected with HIV, mostly foreigners, posted on the Internet. According to these authorities, Mikhy Farrera Brochez, one of the US countries with HIV, had disclosed the data, including names and addresses, after being obtained by a partner, a Singapore doctor.
Mikhy Farrera Brochez was imprisoned in Singapore in 2016 for concealing himself as a sex carrier and for various drug offenses. He was expelled in 2018. Mikhy Farrera Broche will appear in court on Wednesday. In statements earlier in February Straits Times from Singapore, he had claimed his innocence.
Very conservative society
This case made a barn in Australia, especially in the LGBT community and among non-governmental organizations involved in the fight against AIDS. Singapore's health minister, by Kim Yong, recently ensured that his country would do everything to extradition Mikhy Farrera Broche from the US, and bring it to justice.
He denied accusations that the government of Singapore is trying to break down the case. An extradition agreement binds Singapore and the US. HIV is still a very sensitive topic in Singapore, a country with a very conservative society.
