A music teacher and self-styled healer infected 16 people with the HIV virus after telling them he was giving them acupuncture, a court in Bern-Mittelland, Switzerland, has heard.
Teacher Maurice Goeller, 53 - who does not have HIV himself - is said to have injected students and followers with infected blood between 2001 and 2005.
Prosecutors claim he'd obtained the blood from another student who had confided that he had the virus that leads to Aids.
But the teacher - who denies any wrong doing - claims he never gave patients acupuncture or injected them with blood.
The investigation began when pupil Thomas Kaiser was diagnosed HIV positive in 2004 and told medics the only way he could have been infected was through the injection he'd been given by Goeller to help cure headaches.
Investigators began to search for other HIV patients who also received music lessons from the healer and were astonished when 16 came forward.
The case continues.
