The Canadian justice minister instructs federal prosecutors in the North that they will not prosecute anyone because they do not disclose their HIV status to a sex partner who has no risk of transmission of the virus.
The new walk order for Crown lawyers aims to ensure that the criminal code has scientific evidence of the virus and its non-spreading conditions. The statement says that there is no public interest in pursuing non-HIV prosecutions since & medical science demonstrations are not at risk of serious harm to others Direktif.
The new rules, which will enter into force on Saturday, will not be transferred to provinces only in areas where federal prosecutors have jurisdiction.
The federal government does not lead the states to forcibly follow the case, but hopes that the change in politics will serve as an example for them.
The marginalized population was disproportionately affected
Human immunodeficiency virus can lead to AIDS, a syndrome that eventually closes its immune system and makes it very vulnerable to bacteria and viruses. HIV cannot be cured, but can often be suppressed to the point where the virus cannot be detected.
The statement, on Friday afternoon, points to the introduction of people from marginalized communities such as domestic, homosexual and black people, who are more likely to be infected with HIV and are disproportionately affected by indifference laws.
The Canadian Supreme Court held that it would be void to give consent to sexual activity if the accused person did not disclose his / her HIV status or lied. The Crown must prove that the spouse is unacceptable to the gender if it were aware of the status of the person.
Sexual contact may cause the threat of aggravated sexual assault, if it is either transmitting the virus to the complainant or if it puts the alleged victim at risk of a serious contract.
Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould's directives for prosecutors said the cases should not proceed where there is a repressed viral load defined per 200 ml of blood per milliliter of blood. Normally, when a surrogate, condom is used or is solely responsible for oral sex, the case should not be sued.
And if Crown attorneys continue on the case, Wilson-Raybould asks his lawyers to make more lenient accusations where appropriate, especially if there are-lower levels of guilt Ve.
This directive does not apply to cases in courts – only those who fall on the desks of Crown prosecutors, which began this weekend.
