The definition of 'stalking" is to be probed by the Law Lords. They have granted leave for an appeal to them by Anthony Burstow who was convicted at Reading Crown Court under the Offences Against the Persons Act 1861 of causing grievous bodily harm to a woman, and jailed for three years. The offence was labelled as stalking and the House of Lords will be asked to decide whether an offence of the type for which Burstow was convicted can be committed when no physical violence is applied directly to the victim. The Court of Appeal dismissed an appeal by Burstow on 29 July last year.
