A former Thai stripper who was jailed for giving her former husband HIV may have found a way to dance around deportation from Canada. Suwalee Iamkhong, 40, of Toronto, above, won a reduction of her two-year sentence to two years less a day, allowing her to appeal a deportation order.
The court decision has angered her ex-husband, Percy Whiteman. “I am furious,” Whiteman said yesterday. “She has totally ruined my life and yet she wants to walk around free.”
