MOH first had evidence that Brochez may have access to confidential HIV-related data in 2016, after he provided the police and Government authorities 75 names and particulars from the HIV Registry. A police report was subsequently made.

This revelation came after Brochez was arrested for repeatedly refusing to comply with MOH’s order to take a blood test, Mr Gan said.

Brochez had gotten his hands on the HIV Registry data from his then-partner Ler Teck Siang. Ler was the head of the National Public Health Unit (NPHU) from March 2012 to May 2013, and had authority to access information in the registry as required for his work, the minister said.

Before 2012, the HIV Registry was placed in a secured network drive; the file could only be accessed and downloaded from Government-issued computers and was password protected.

NPHU staff would need to download the registry in order to carry out routine data entry, contact tracing and analysis, and back then, they were allowed to use personal thumb drives, if they followed data protection policies, he explained.
