Trevor Griffin, South Australia attorney general, referred to stalking, which was outlawed in 1994, and warned that cyber-stalking would face a similar crackdown.
Under the proposed legislation, cyber-stalking would involve the use of the Internet or other electronic communication to publish or transmit offensive material in a manner that would arouse apprehension or fear.
Griffin defined a cyber-stalker as someone who sends e-mails to his or her victim; seeks to contact his or her victim through chat rooms; posts information about the victim on the Internet; or directs his or her victim to offensive or threatening Web sites.
