Dear Goode, Julia,

The statistics and figures provided were unsatisfactory. As per the article below, that 252 victims of who are known about. If you are not aware about how these figures and statistics were determined, it would be great to transfer my request to the police or to the Minister of Justice (Domestic and Sexual Violence Issues) under-secretary Jan Logie

"Minister of Justice (Domestic and Sexual Violence Issues) under-secretary Jan Logie said there were 252 victims, who are known about, who "have had their life teeter"."

"The number of people charged with strangulation since a new law was introduced on December 3 has soared, with nearly 30 people having been charged within the first 11 days. That number is now over 250."
