Anger over absence of anti-stalking law
(06-17 12:23)

The government and lawmakers have been roundly criticized for not pushing ahead with a proposed law on stalking.
The idea was raised nearly 14 years ago by the Law Reform Commission.
The government on Monday said it wasn't shelving the proposal completely, but conditions weren't favorable to take it further.
A former member of the Law Reform Commission, University of Hong Kong Professor John Bacon-Shone, says it's important to know how serious stalking is in the territory.
He says he'll put together his own team to find out. --RTHK
