Bail de­nied again for man with AIDS who paid for sex with 100 girls

The Myanmar Times - - World -

A Malaw­ian man ac­cused of sleep­ing with 100 girls and women in a se­ries of rit­ual cleans­ing acts failed in his sec­ond bid to be freed on bail. Pros­e­cu­tor Christo­pher Bo­toman on Au­gust 15 op­posed the bail re­quest for Eric Aniva over fears that he could “in­tim­i­date and in­flu­ence” wit­nesses not to tes­tify in court. The pros­e­cu­tion also said the 45-yearold – who has said he is in­fected with the AIDS virus – was likely to jump bail and cross the bor­der into Mozam­bique. But Mr Aniva, whose first bid to se­cure bail was ear­lier this month, re­jected the idea, say­ing he was “not scared” to face trial. – AFP
