The assault offences under the Criminal Code are sufficient to provide for prosecution of an offence of wilful transmission of HIV.
There have been no prosecutions or convictions for the transmission of HIV occuring under this law so the application of the law to alleged HIV transmission is, at present, merely theoretical.
