 Luanda - Two cases of intentional HIV/Aids transmission were official recorded throughout 2007/2008 countrywide by the National Police, said a source from the corporation.

The spokesman of the Police in Luanda, Jorge Bengue, gave the information, adding that despite this figure, there are many HIV positive people that practice such crimes.

"The national police know, in an informal way, that there are more crimes of this nature. What we have not are more cases officially notified, as there is protectionism from the society, so that the problem be solved among them", he said.

The source said that the police got acquainted with these cases after various conflicts between couples.
