Demand for 15 year sentence in HIV trial

The public prosecution department has demanded prison sentences of 15 years in the Groningen trial of three men accused of causing grievous bodily harm by deliberately injecting a number of men with hiv-infected blood.

The call for 15 years is for two of the men, Peter M (49) and Hans J (39) who are accused of drugging the men at sex parties and then abusing them.
The third defendant, Peter’s partner Wim D (48) is facing a sentence of eight years.
So far 14 victims of the sex gang have been identified.
