Ariane Friedrich And Internet Stalker
Published: April 26, 2012
Ariane Friedrich And Internet Stalker, Star German high-jumper Ariane Friedrich has named an alleged stalker on Facebook, citing self-defence.
She posted the name and address of a man who had allegedly pestered her, sending her lewd photographs.
Ms Friedrich, who hopes to take part in the Olympics in London this summer, also filed a criminal complaint.
Thousands of people have weighed into a debate on her Facebook page about her actions, with some defending the alleged stalker’s right to privacy.
The debate has the added complication that Ms Friedrich also works as a police officer.
“I’ve been offended in the past, S-EX-ually harassed, and I’ve had a stalker before,” she wrote, after posting the details of the man who had allegedly sent her a photograph of his genitals in an email.
“It’s time to act, it’s time to defend myself. And that’s what I’m doing. No more and no less. I’m not willing to be a victim again. I’m simply tired and there simply comes a time when enough is enough.”
Her manager, Guenter Eisinger, said the case was now a matter for German prosecutors.
He admitted the incident might overshadow Ms Friedrich’s preparations for the London Olympic Games, AFP news agency reports.
