The Newry and Armagh MLA comments, “I welcome the introduction of a new offence of cyber-flashing which outlaws sending unsolicited or unwanted sexual images either online or in public.

 

 

“Whether it’s sending these images to a stranger’s phone on public transport, or sending pictures to people online, this disgusting behaviour must be tackled.

“Criminalising this behaviour sends out a strong message that it cannot and will not be tolerated.

She adds, “I’m very pleased to see it passed today.”
