Petition update

Update in the Czech HIV criminalisation case

European AIDS Treatment Group

Mar 13, 2016 — Dear All,

I cannot express how much your support means to us and our colleagues in the Czech Republic. This is a short update on the case as received from representatives of the Czech PLHIV organisation in Prague:

"Out of 30 criminal complaints submitted by the Prague Public Health Authority, police investigated twenty. In seven cases police already stopped the investigation as there was no criminal offense. Remaining 13 cases are still under investigation - in one case police has asked for an expert statement. No criminal charges were filed so far and the police did not disclose any further details regarding
the investigation.

We continue to press for systemic changes at the national level so that this kind broad HIV criminalization does not happen in the future."

I shall update you as soon as there are any additional details.
