Tatiana Bukhtoyarova was discovered to be carrying the infectious disease when a team from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention carried out a raid on the brothel on Phoceae 22 road. According to Star
the young prostitute did not have the necessary papers to stay in Greece.
Following the arrest of Bukhtoyarova, photographs were released to the media by order
of the prosecution, in order to alert unfortunate customers of the prostitute that they may be infected with the virus. Ta Nea
reported the decision to publicise her identity was to prevent panic amongst customers who may have visited other prostitutes who bore a resemblance to Bukhtoyarova and to warn those who had visited her so they can receive testing. It is also hoped it may deter others from engaging in such criminal behaviour.
The prostitute will be tried in court on charges of facilitating debauchery and for intentional gross bodily harm.
