“Two of them got out of the pickup truck and asked for me,

“They took the elevator up to the front of the unit and knocked on the door,

“When they realised I was not home they took a photo of the front of the condo and then went down,

“I was later told that,

“They tracked down many people who ‘got involved with the youngsters’ rallies’,

“I consulted some lawyers,

“And was clarified that,

“This action is a form of harassment – ​​stalking,
