Bail for accused HIV infector
A 40-year-old man accused of deliberately exposing at least one woman to HIV has been granted bail in the Adelaide Magistrates Court, despite the likelihood of fresh charges.
X is charged with two counts of endangering life after he exposed his partner to the HIV virus.
Prosecutor Lucy Boord opposed bail, saying X has threatened the director of the Public Health Department and is likely to try to intimidate his victims.
The court heard X came to Australia as a refugee and has been living in Australia for 10 years.
The court also heard he was about to return to Africa when he was arrested.
He has been released on home detention bail on the condition he surrenders his passport and wears an electronic monitor.
He will also be prevented from contacting any of his alleged victims including a child born to one of his ex-girlfriends.
