No Angels and Demons: Is Nadja Benaissa a Criminal?

Thursday, June 11, 2009

Across the pond, few news items in Europe are hotter than the scandal in the German girl group No Angels, who are comparable to the Pussycat Dolls over here.
Singer Nadja Benaissa (the one with the flame above her head) made her first public appearance recently after a 10-day stint behind bars after being charged with doing "grievous bodily harm," by having sex with a man and not telling him she was HIV-positive.
Benaissa attended a charity in Germany and took pictures for the papparazi as if nothing happened and enjoyed the limelight in a ho-hum manner.
But things are far from ho-hum for her.
When she was arrested, what made it more outrageous is that Benaissa was captured by police seconds before she was about to go on stage and perform.
Prosecutors allege she had unprotected sex with at least three men from 2004 to 2006 after being told she was HIV-positive. At least one of the men has confirmed that he is now HIV-positive.
Authorities wanted to keep her behind bars indefinitely, saying that she's a "threat to the public" if she is willing to have sex with men and not disclose her status. But the media and legal officials castigated them and they let her out.
Talk about drama!
Instead of 'Wrap it Up,' we need to be saying 'Cap it Up'.

In the U.S., this news would be on par of if someone like Kelly Rowland was found out to have HIV.
For the record, Nadja's lawyers are not saying their client is innocent but they're saying that the facts haven't been proven. It'll be interesting to see what defense they use since the scandal has touched off a very furious debate in Germany about when and how to disclose bedroom secrets. Do you tell your lover everything?

Personally, I say that one should not have to their lover everything BUT when it is something that is an essential factor in determining the future of their health, it MUST be let out in the open. They should have a say if they wanna take that risk!

I agree with you, but there are a whole host of other things out there that could be said as well (How do you tell your lover 'I have corns?') LOL.
