An HIV-infected burglar who raped the daughter of a foreign diplomat while aware of his condition violated the AIDS Prevention and Control Act (後天免疫缺乏症候群防治條例), an offense subject to imprisonment of up to seven years, a Center for Disease Control (CDC) official said yesterday. The incident took place on April 26 when the man, surnamed Sun, broke into the Taipei home of the diplomat. Sun was later arrested and said he was HIV-positive. According to CDC Deputy Director-General Shih Wen-yi (施文儀), Sun knowingly placed the victim at risk. Shih said the health authorities have given the victim preventive medication and would follow up on her condition for a year to determine if she was infected.
