I downloaded files, says mum of HIV data leak suspect

Accused: Farrera-Brochez faces charges in the US related to stolen identification documents. — The Straits Times/Asia News Network

LEXINGTON (United States): Mikhy Farrera-Brochez, the American at the centre of the Singapore HIV database leak, first asked his mother to download files, which could have included data from the HIV Registry, from a server he owned in Singapore back in 2016, three years before the leak became known to the public.

His mother Teresa King, who testified on Monday on the first day of Farrera-Brochez’s trial before a Kentucky jury, said she did not look at the files she downloaded from Kentucky because her son told her not to.
