KUALA LUMPUR: Efforts to pass the anti-stalking bill require the cooperation of all quarters as anyone can be a victim, says Datuk Mas Ermieyati Samsudin.

The Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department (Parliament and Law) said she hoped that victims, including men, would come forward and share their stories.

"So far, I have never heard of a man's experience (of being stalked), but I do not rule out the possibility that they are victims as well.

"I hope men are not ashamed to share their stories. This is the best time for us to champion the plight of stalking victims," she said after attending an engagement session with civil society organisations on the bill here on Tuesday (Sept 20). – Bernama
