Sources have confirmed that Filho has worked in Galway, Athlone, Cavan, Sligo, Castlebar and Tipperary.Mr Filho, who had no English, had been moved around by his Dublin-based pimps and was being charged €250 rent for staying in various brothels.A leading Garda this week appealed to anyone who had received sexual services from Mr Filho in Donegal to go and receive medical attention.Gardai raided the brothel in which Filho was operating on Monday and he answered the door wearing women’s underwear, a blonde wig ad wearing make-up.A man on the premises at Ballymacool Terrace had just had sex with Filho and was questioned by Gardai before being released.Residents at the terraced row of houses said they had observed and taken the registration numbers of up to 60 cars visiting the brothel each week.They said many were married men from the locality and the busiest time for the brothel was between 1pm and 2pm.Superintendent Vincent O’Brien, of Letterkenny Garda station, said“I am making an urgent appeal to any members of the public who have used the services of prostitutes to seek urgent medical advice.“This follows the confirmation that one prostitute who has been operating in Letterkenny is HIV positive,” he said.Filho was ordered to keep the peace by Judge Paul Kelly and released from custody.He told a special sitting of Glenties District Court that he has a return ticket to Brazil on November 27th next.HIV PROSTITUTE WORKED IN OTHER TOWNS ACROSS IRELAND was last modified: October 27th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Donegal DailyHIV PROSTITUTE WORKED IN OTHER TOWNS ACROSS IRELANDletterkennylast_img
