What is use a carriage service to threaten serious harm?

This is where a person uses a carriage service to send communication that threatens serious harm or death to another person (including a third person).

Communication is ‘by means of guided or unguided electromagnetic energy or both.” This includes, but is not limited to: text or phone messages, emails, and messages sent via videoconferencing, Instagram or Facebook.

The accused must hold an intention that the person receiving the threat will fear that it will be carried out. However, it is not necessary that the Prosecution prove that the person receiving the threat feared that it would be carried out.
