Thank you for your question.

No, the human rights legislation only relates to the relationship between the individual and the state, not the relationship between two individuals. Her behaviour would be a matter for the civil law and your remedy would be based on nuisance or breach of privacy or some other remedy but not human rights.

I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
