A man from Toronto is urging all those who have slept with his stripper ex-wife to get an HIV test done, after he was infected with the virus through her.
Suwalee Iamkhong, 39, who arrived in Canada from Thailand in 1995, danced at Toronto's Zanzibar Tavern for most of her career, which lasted until 2004.
Her ex-husband Percy Whiteman made a claim on December 29 that Iamkhong had been having sex with other men, though there was no evidence to support it.
"I know there were other men she slept with," the Toronto Sun quoted Whiteman as saying about Iamkhong, who is fighting deportation from Canada.
"I am lucky that I was able to find out early," he said regarding the virus.
Iamkhong had been sentenced in August 2007 to three years in jail after being convicted of criminal negligence causing bodily harm for infecting Whiteman with HIV.
Whiteman, who married Iamkhong in 1997, told court that he didn't know she had AIDS until the woman fell ill in 2004.
"She lied and she put some-one's life at stake," he said.
"I've gotten a life sentence and I know there are others out there," he added.
The Canadian Government wants to deport Iamkhong, who is being detained in an immigration holding facility. A final deportation date has not been set.
