VANCOUVER - A Vancouver woman is taking her husband's former mistress to court over dozens of harassing phone calls and messages she claims local police declined to investigate.

The notice of civil claim filed in B.C. Supreme Court alleges that following an early 2011 affair, Geraldin Arabia Andrade made and sent about 47 phone calls and messages to Josephine Exconde.

As a result, the document says Exconde suffered harassment and nervous shock, experiencing stress anxiety, insomnia, emotional grief, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and a feeling of a lack of privacy.

The document says the Vancouver police declined to investigate the issue after Exconde made two separate complaints because officers believed the issue was of a civil nature.

Exconde is seeking damages, lost wages, costs and a court order restraining the Andrade from contacting her directly or indirectly.

The allegations have yet to be proven in court, and Andrade has yet to file a statement of defence.
