On 21 July, Acacia posted on Twitter to say there was no update yet from the police and it has been a difficult week after sharing her ordeal online.

She was advised not to post anything to avoid disrupting the investigation, which she respected and obliged.

Acacia added that the police and the relevant ministries are working on the case. However, she also said the anti-stalking law currently cannot be acted upon due to technicalities in the procedure processes.

As far as she knows, her stalker is still free and tweeting online.

She urged the authorities to take cases like hers seriously and hoped the law will be expedited to protect victims.

While awaiting news about her case, she encouraged victims suffering from harassment and stalking to share their stories, document everything, and seek support.

I am still fighting this. I know I am not alone. There is no choice but to be strong to get through this.
