Fiona Drouet has told the Press and Journal she is planning a new campaign to have the phones of online abusers confiscated.
Mrs Drouet, who lost her teenage daughter, Emily, in 2016, said yesterday she thought it was too easy for people to post abusive messages online, via Twitter, Facebook or other channels, with their phones.
She believes that, just as motorists charged with dangerous driving can lose possession of their cars, perpetrators of online abuse should be blacklisted from owning a mobile.
She said: “So much abuse is online, usually through mobile phones.
“Angus Milligan [who admitted to abusing Emily] was charged with Breach of the Communications Act. But what happens, he keeps his phone.
“I think Ofcom needs to explore blacklisting people with such convictions.
“It would act as a deterrent, because at the moment, why do people need to think twice? It would be possible to impose it on a contract phone, although obviously pay as you go is more challenging. Or there could be a licence.
“I really want to take the campaign forward, because at the moment, there is nothing making people stop and think before they post abusive comments or send damaging texts to other people.
“Blacklisting would cause inconvenience to daily life and such things as getting a phone contract with new employer. I intend to approach Ofcom and I will hopefully be looking at that in the next couple of months.”
