Revenge porn offenders face penalties

21 September 2016

Tougher laws to prevent the distribution of intimate and pornographic images of another person without their consent have been passed by Parliament.

The new laws will crack down on so-called “revenge porn” and make those who threaten to send an invasive image of another person or intend to ‘’arouse a fear’’ that the threat will be carried out guilty of criminal offence.
