Facts and figures of crime in the UK

 In 1997 a law was introduced to help females who were the victim of 'stalkers'. A stalker being a person who follows someone around, sends unwanted gifts or letters, constantly telephones them etc.

This law also helps people in everyday compensation solicitor situations including you being constantly bullied. Bullying is a form of 'HARASSMENT', The word simply means 'harassing another person' and 'causing them distress'. You being bullied quite simply fits into this act.

The exact wording in law for the HARASSMENT ACT 1997:
(1) a person must not pursue a course of conduct
(a) which amounts to harassment of another
(b) which he/she knows or ought to know costs of crime amounts to harassment of another
(2) a person who pursues a course of conduct in breach of section 1 is guilty of an offence.

'Course of conduct' must involve conduct on at least 2 occasions not more than a year apart and it need not be the same conduct eg; threats made, property damaged.

You being being bullied is a form of harassment. You are the one who must make the first move in getting it stopped. Once you speak out you should not be alone. You are alone when the bullying happens so speak out!

Just think! If you speak out you could stop many children going through what you have.
