“Worst case of its kind”: Man jailed three years for capturing over 200 obscene videos of women
From 2013 to 2016, he had captured more than 200 obscene films featuring unsuspecting women, including his own friends.
He then shared them in online groups dedicated to distributing voyeuristic videos taken with hidden cameras in places such as changing rooms and public toilets.
On Tuesday (6 Feb), 27-year-old customer service officer Ong Yi Jie was sentenced to three years’ jail after admitting to 40 counts of insulting a woman's modesty and one charge of possessing 57 obscene films for distribution.
217 other charges, including 213 extra counts of insulting a woman's modesty, were considered.
It all started in 2013, when he bought hidden cameras shaped like wall hooks and started filming in toilets of places like Nanyang Polytechnic and the Church of Singapore in Bukit Timah.
He also invited four female friends to his home in 2014 and filmed them when they used the toilet.
These videos were then shared and traded on Sammyboy Forum - an online site that was sex-themed and contained hundreds of threads sharing obscene material.
On 11 Nov 2016, the Ministry of Education received information of obscene videos circulating on the Internet featuring school girls in toilets or changing rooms. They then reported to the police.
Police raided Ong’s home later that month and arrested him.
Ong is the third man to be sentenced in court in a case with online groups that sharing voyeuristic videos taken with hidden cameras.
The prosecution have called the case the “worst of its kind”.
