Pampanga Rep. Arroyo wants stalking criminalized
People who get their rocks off stalking other individuals, especially beautiful women, may have to find another “hobby” should Pampanga 2nd District Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s House Bill 2890 be enacted into law.
Under the proposed law, the lady politiko wants stalking turned into a criminal offense as it violates a person’s constitutional right to privacy.
Arroyo added that the Constitution guarantees that a person has to be secure in their persons, houses and papers and that the Civil Code of the Philippines mandates that every person must respect the dignity, privacy, personality and peace of mind of others.
Stalking, she said, violates these guarantees but present laws are insufficient in the prevention and punishment of such act.
