HIV infection accused Henry Assumang 'did not believe he was HIV Positive'
A CHINEHAM man accused of infecting two women with the HIV virus did not believe he was HIV Positive, his lawyer said.
Karen Todner, of London-based firm Kaim Todner, said Henry Assumang sought to defend himself at trial, but died on Monday, August 5.
In a statement, she said Assumang died after “being treated at Southampton General Hospital for the last few weeks for numerous ailments.”
She added: “Our instructions from Mr Assumang were always to defend the charges he faced and that he did not believe he was HIV Positive.
“Various American experts had provided evidential reports supporting Mr Assumang’s defence.
“However, given Mr Assumang’s demise and subsequent death his trial will now not take place.”
Assumang, 34, of Coppice Pale, Chineham, was charged with two counts of inflicting grievous bodily harm.
He was accused of having sexual relationships with the two women between 2007 and 2010 after meeting them on nights out in Basingstoke.
