More and more people in Germany are becoming victims of stalking. Victims’ associations say that today’s online and communications media have only exacerbated the problem.Today, stalkers can pursue their victims by text message, Facebook and the Internet. It’s estimated that around 900,000 Germans are being harassed in this way. The majority of victims are women, who are targeted mainly by acquaintances and former partners. But legal options are limited, and only a small percentage of the cases are ever brought to trial.
