Fugitive Who Had Unprotected Sex With Men And Women To Spread His HIV Is Caught In Holiday Resort

A man has been arrested in Thailand on suspicion of having unprotected sex with men and women while knowingly having HIV, and on suspicion of having sex with a minor.

Zdenek Pfeifer, 49, from Bohemia, Czech Republic, was caught after a huge manhunt by Thai police who found him living in Phuke

Pfeifer was on the run after an Interpol release was issued on behalf of Czech authorities who were searching for him.

He is wanted over accusations that he knowingly passed on the sexually transmitted disease to both men and women in his home country.

Pfeifer also allegedly had sex with a minor. One minor alleges he paid him for sex and filmed a pornographic movie of them together.

The Czech national faces charges of battery, sexual abuse, spreading disease and distributing pornography, a police spokesman said.

But bungling cops let him go after the responding officer called for back up, then had to "urgently use the toilet" - allowing the suspect to flee.

He was found hours later in his rented accommodation in Phuket.

Pfeifer will face charges of overstaying his tourist visa, which ran out in 2015, which will allow him to be deported.
