    The Coalition for the Safety of Women and Children says a young woman killed in 2022 would probably still be alive if stalking was criminalised

    The Coalition for the Safety of Women and Children says a young woman killed in 2022 would probably still be alive if stalking was criminalised


    The Police watchdog's investigated the murder of Auckland student Farzana Yaqubi , eight weeks after she reported being harassed.

    The IPCA's found the way Police assess stalking allegations, isn't fit-for-purpose.

    It says they failed to link her complaint with a similar one from another young woman.

    Police accept they should have acted sooner.

    Coalition Chair, Leonie Morris, is urging the Justice Minister make stalking a criminal offence.
