The ex girlfriend of my boyfriend is running a fake facebook

Customer Question

The ex girlfriend of my boyfriend is running a fake facebook page pretending to be me with pictures of me and my boyfriend, along with my children and family. She has on her own page, status' naming me and calling me insulting swearing names, on that page she has a full album of photos of me, again stating my full name, town of residence and repeating her name calling. She sends these page lonks to my friends and family. She has in the past sent sexually explicitly worded hate mail via facebook to my whole extended family and children ( youngest 11) about me. She sends friend requests and messages to my friends ( she has the list from before I knew she existed) makes new profiles if they block her etc. As fast as I report to facebook , she does it again. I have sent her a cease and desist letter to which I got no reply although she read it.

She stalks my boyfriends place of work, takes photos of his back and despite the lack of any photo's pretends she is dating him etc. She sends me messages when I am sat right next to him telling me they are out having dinner and similar.

I am in the UK and she lives in Sweden. Can I take her to court over slander or liabel, copyright infringement, misuse of telecommunications act etc ? I have printouts of her actions. If so, is it better to do this from the Uk or in Sweden ? Thank you
