Reilly welcomes upskirting and cyber-flashing laws coming into effect

Sinn Féin MLA Aisling Reilly has welcomed that upskirting and cyber-flashing laws have officially come into effect in the north. 

The party’s Justice Spokesperson said: 

“These offences violate a person’s rights to privacy and bodily integrity and can be a deeply invasive, traumatic and distressing experience, and the fact the laws are now in place is hugely welcomed. 

“Enhanced laws to address online child impersonation and threats to share private sexual images will also take effect. 

“This new legislation will help address everyday misogyny and sexism women face and tackle the underlying attitudes which cause gender-based violence, harassment and intimidation against women and girls.”

Children on scoliosis-related waiting lists deserve better.

Promises have been made and broken. Children need the Government to increase domestic capacity & make full use of international options.

There's an urgency to this and all options must be on the table. @davidcullinane

Our children deserve better. On Tuesday @sinnfeinireland is bringing forward a Bill to regulate children’s mental health services, and help tackle waiting lists.

Our children cannot wait. The government must act now.
