Item 4: Order Paper 12/16-21 – Monday 12 September 2016

Motion: Stalking

That this Assembly notes with concern that for too long stalking has remained a hidden crime, which is not only insidious and terrifying, but can result in psychological harm and, in the most serious of cases, murder; and calls on the Minister of Justice to examine whether the introduction of new legislation to protect and safeguard victims of stalking is needed in Northern Ireland.

The Speaker has selected the following Amendment for debate:

Amendment 1

Leave out all after ‘Justice’ and insert:

“to develop and table new legislation to enable crimes of stalking to be prosecuted based on the stalker’s behaviour and the effects on the victims.”
