POLITICIAN and feminist Roshika Deo says more policies need to be developed to combat cyber-related crimes.
"Cyber bullying is becoming a serious emerging issue that is not being discussed and advocated on sufficiently," Ms Deo said.
She said the use of technology such as the internet, social networking sites, mobile phones or camera to harass, bully, threaten, intimidate, embarrass, and sexually harass was a growing concern.
"Cyber bullying increases the risks and dangers, especially for young people, and is also perpetuating the rape culture prevalent in Fiji," she claimed.
She said young women were often subjected to many attacks on internet for merely voicing their opinions.
Ms Deo said private social media messages were also shared publicly without consent.
