The government has recently made a commitment to table a policy paper in the cabinet to criminalise stalking.

Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Mas Ermieyati Samsudin said an anti-stalking bill would be tabled in Parliament following the cabinet’s approval.

BFM discusses with Yu Ren Chung, deputy executive director of the Women’s Aid Organisation, and Emellia Shariff, managing partner of Speak Up Malaysia, what amendments should be made, and how a holistic and comprehensive appraoch would look like. Then, it discusses what constitutes stalking behaviour and how to be made aware of consent.
