Ex Bank executive accused of taking upskirt videos

< 1 min read
Reported in “The Straits Times” 28/01/2015

A former senior bank executive was accused of taking an upskirt video on an escalator. He allegedly took a video of the woman in front of him with his mobile phone at Marina Bay Link Mall.

Witness testified that the accused was holding his Ipad and folder in his right hand and took out his mobile phone from his left trouser pocket and held it so it faced upwards. The accused admitted to taking the upskirt videos

The man faces two other counts of similar offences at the same place, between the end of November and early December last year.

Our criminal defence counsel, had stated that he was taking a random video and intended to screen-grab pictures of women’s clothes for an intended shopping trip to Malaysia. Our lawyers avered that there were no aggravating factors, low intrusion and no multiple victims in this case. As a result, we were successful in receiving a reduced penalty for our client. The accused was fined $6,000. The maximum penalty that the accused could have faced for insulting the modesty of a woman is a jail term of one year and a fine.
