Calabrian man arrested after violating restraining order

Scalea (Cosenza), August 29 - A 36-year-old man was placed under house arrest for stalking when he violated a restraining order to keep him away from his ex-wife, investigators said on Thursday. The laborer in the southern Italian town of Scalea, in Calabria, approached his ex-wife's home, rang the doorbell and asked to speak to her. A local magistrate substituted the restraining order with house-arrest following a new 'femicide' decree which went into effect in mid-August. The 12-point decree sets harsher penalties for those found guilty of domestic abuse, sexual violence and stalking, and also offers greater victim protection.
