In April 2012, the measure was the catalyst for the forced testing of hundreds of women. The 17 that were discovered to be HIV positive were splashed across media outlets, with their personal information and photographs published for the world to see. They were characterized by police as "prostitutes" despite the fact that there no evidence was ever provided to back up the accusations. After the women were detained for months, the regulation was repealed and they were sent home.
With the measure Georgladis reintroduced, anyone can be forced to be tested with minimal suspicion by the police. If tested positive, the consequences can mean the loss of your job and release of personal information to the media. Additionally, according to the measure's lanuguage, a positive person "should be evicted from their homes, without any alternative being offered."
