SYDNEY - A Sydney man who knowingly infected two female tourists with the HIV virus through unprotected sex was Thursday sentenced to nine years in jail.

Stanislas Kanengele-Yondjo, a Congolese immigrant, was described in a Sydney court as having "a poverty of spirit and moral bankruptcy which beggars belief".

Kanengele-Yondjo, 42, pleaded guilty to causing grievous bodily harm by knowingly infecting two women, tourists from Ireland and Germany, between January and March 2003.

Both women have since been diagnosed as HIV positive.

The married father of five was diagnosed with HIV in February 1999. He told the women he had no sexually transmitted diseases.

"To have subjected innocent persons to your own horror shows a poverty of spirit and moral bankruptcy which beggars belief," Judge Warwick Andrews said.
