Police seek more sexual victims of HIV-infected man

Postmedia NewsJanuary 11, 2012

Police are seeking more victims of a Toronto-area man who they say had sexual relations with women without disclosing he was HIV-positive.

York Regional Police on Wednesday issued a picture of Sarbjit Singh Mann, 39, of Stouffville, Ont., who was charged this week with aggravated sexual assault and criminal negligence.

Authorities have identified one person they say is one of the accused's victims and are hoping the photo will prompt more to come forward.

"We don't know how many victims there are" said Sgt. Gary Phillips of the York police. "That's the purpose of putting (the photo) out."

HIV is a virus that often progresses to give people the deadly AIDS disease.

Dr. Julio Montaner, director of the B.C. Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS, recently wrote in the Canadian Medical Association Journal that it should not be a crime for HIV-infected people to withhold their condition to sexual partners.

He argued that advances in medicine have made it possible to "virtually eliminate" the risk of transmitting HIV to another person through sex.
