His ex partner has his phone and has used his numbers to contact people on it. The police are aware they have his phone. The ex partner has recently contacted him via emailto say that they have joined a group connected to Claire's law and are saying they are a victim as they did not know he was a sex offender.

What do you wish to know about this?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Is what she is doing illegal ? He has an issue with going to the police for anything now and does not trust the system to support him. I am very concerned she has joined a group that is thete to support victims when she clearly knew what his offences where as the police did a face to face with her to say what he been convicted of so she did know. I am aware she has a mental health issue and she is not happy he has moved away. He tends to run when anything hapoens and l worry if she spreads lies abput him or exposes where he lives he may come to some harm..

I am at work so not able to talk. I really just wanted to know if it is classed as harrasment. Does he have any right to make sure she is not on a site that is supposed to protect people and she is lying because she did know what he had done.
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
She can not call him but she is email with some horrible things. He is keeping the emails

The fact that she is sending him unsolicited emails could indeed amount to harassment and he can ask the police to ask her to stop.

i am afraid the has no right to know or contact any group he is part of

I am sorry that the news is not better - please ask if you need further details
