The man confessed. On Thursday, he claimed to have a 29-Year-old killed. The motive is unclear. "We believe that the detained Person has stalked the victim prior to the act," says Erich Wenzinger of the Zurich chief Prosecutor's office. The mother of the deceased said in the "views" that their daughter had been displayed years ago, a man who then pursued her stubbornly. Whether it is the now detained, is unclear. "It is the subject of ongoing investigation, whether, and where, in the past, at best, an ad is received," says Wenzinger.
Actually, the civil code provides protection for victims of Stalking. You can apply to court for a contact or rayon prohibition. As the Federal office of justice 2015 was the practice to examine, the conclusion is devastating. Rarely a judge would order such measures. "A Problem is the cost", it says. The victims themselves have to make advance payments, so it comes to the process. And the attorney and court costs to shell out in case of a defeat.
police may soon also against foreign Stalker action
"in Addition, the burden of proof is high," the report said. "Stressful, the personal encounter with the defendant's Person is affected by Violence." Protection is not guaranteed even if a ban was spoken. "Protection measures are often disregarded. However, sanctions in case of Violations remain common." The Zurich-based lawyer Yves Pellet called a paper tiger. "Victims want first and foremost, rest in front of a Stalker, do not help such a complex process." His law firm Baumgartner Mächler is a different way. "We have private investigators who first find out who the Stalker is. And then observe, to gather evidence." Then confront the perpetrator. "To give him the clear Signal: this is the end." Often such a warning to the rich – otherwise, you'll go to the police or in court. "But then with the necessary Evidence." The police themselves have little resources to collect such. "Observations need a lot of staff, which is usually only in the case of capital crimes and drug trafficking."
Marc Besson of the police of the Canton of Zurich, the allegation "baseless". Take each message seriously. "We have a specialized domestic violence intervention centre, which also deals with Stalking." The Zurich security Directorate announced ten days ago: police officers can in the future also have measures against alien Stalker. Previously this was only possible if the offender and the victim (Ex-)Partner. The national Parliament also decided in September that the victims no legal costs to bear and judge can rearrange the ankle cuffs. The law Commission of the national Council, finally, advises currently, Stalking as an offence to the criminal code.
