“Release my husband or else,” US citizen behind HIV data leak threathens to expose information to the public
Anna Maria Romero reports:
Singapore — In an affidavit filed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in the United States, Mikhy Farrera-Brochez admitted that he had the database of the HIV registry in his possession, had brought it into the US, and threatened the Government of Singapore that he would release the data for public perusal if his ‘husband’ was not set free.
FBI Special Agent Chelsea Holliday filed an affidavit on February 22 wherein Mr Brochez admitted to having accessed the database while he was still in Singapore, and that he had brought it with him when he was deported to the US in April 2018.
Should Dr Ler Teck Siang be convicted, he could face up to 20 years in jail.
