A prostitute with HIV has been arrested for bedding thousands of men – including Irish fellas – during Euro 2012.
The hooker, who is known as ‘********** ******’, was working in Gdynia where the Irish team trained and about 10 miles from the Irish fans’ base in Sopot.
The 28-year-old vice girl, who also advertised under the name **** ******** and ********, is set to face trial over having unprotected sex with clients even thought she knew she was HIV positive.
Police spokeswoman Beata Gora said: “She accepted around 10 clients a day, all the while knowing she was infected.
“Multiply them over the years and that’s an enormous number of men who could have been infected.”
Cops said the woman had been under surveillance for some time before her arrest and that she offered traditional sex, along with more adventurous activities.
Fellow sex workers tipped off cops about the woman over fears that her actions would give prostitutes a bad them.
But officers only arrested her after two of her clients came forward and admitted they had tested positive for HIV.
Ms Gora said: “Due to the sensitive nature of the case we will not be disclosing personal details of the accused.
“I can only say that the suspect is a woman, and that she has been charged with knowingly spreading HIV.”
A Dublin-based sexually transmitted disease expert has warned soccer fans who played away from home at Euro 2012 to get tested.
Dr Derek Freedman said: “If people were in that area and had unprotected sex with a prostitute then I would urge them to get tested.
“What we are afraid of is people presenting themselves when it is too late. The risk of transmissions is greatest during the first year.”
