Family claims suicide of 12-year-old girl over harassment in northern France – .

The family of a 12-year-old who took her own life last week have spoken of how the schoolgirl was bullied – both at school and in cyberbullying attacks at home.
Police are investigating to find out more and say they are keeping all options open regarding Chanel’s death.

“There was harassment in the form of insults and threats, and also cyber harassment on Snapchat,” Hugo Martinez, president of the anti-harassment association “Hugo! “.

Chanel attended the Pierre Cuallaci high school in Frévent (Pas-de-Calais) which provided students, parents and staff with a psychological support unit.

“School is for learning and growing, not for suffering,” Chanel’s older sister Lindsay told France Bleu Nord.

Girls most likely to be victims of cyberbullying

Nearly 20% of children aged 8 to 18 have been confronted with cyberstalking, according to a study by the Caisse d’Épargne in partnership with the e-Enfance association.

The majority of cases concern young girls (51%), with an average age of 13 years.

The 2,408 parents and children interviewed said the victims had been targeted out of jealousy and revenge, because of differences in tastes and behaviors, or differences in physical appearance and appearance.

Cyberbullying assistance in France

Harassment that takes place on the internet through email, social media, etc. is known as cyberbullying or cyberstalking.

If your child is the victim of this type of bullying, the official French government website recommends asking the electronic support manager to remove the mail.

Social media sites each have their own system for reporting abusive content.

When urgent intervention is required, you can also report it online to the police or gendarmerie.

Cyberbullying is an offense punishable by fines and / or imprisonment with harsher penalties when the victim is under 15 years old.

Young victims of online bullying can also call the French Net Ecoute helpline on 3018 for help, which can also help remove content from websites and file official complaints.
