KUALA LUMPUR: An executive officer was charged in a Magistrate's Court on Wednesday with recording a video of a housewife while she was bathing in her condominium unit four days ago.
Izwar Efendi Taswar, 31, later claimed trial to recording the video of the 21-year-old housewife while she was bathing naked in a bathroom of her house with intent to outrage her modesty using his Samsung Galaxy SII smartphone.
He allegedly committed the offence in Bayu Tasik Condo 2, Bandar Sri Permaisuri at Cheras here on Jan 11 at about 11.52am
If convicted, Izwar would face a maximum of five years' jail or a fine or both under Section 509 of the Penal Code.
Magistrate Saifulakmal Said then granted bail at RM5,000 in one surety and fixed Feb 14 for mention pending engagement of a counsel.
Tan Sew Ping was the deputy public prosecutor while Izwar was unrepresented.
On Tuesday, it was reported that a 31-year-old Peeping Tom was detained for recording a video of a 20-year-old woman showering in a condominium in Cheras last Saturday.
Cheras OCPD Asst Comm Mohan Singh said the woman was taking a bath in her ground-floor unit when she noticed a handphone pointed at her from outside the bathroom window at 11.54am on Saturday.
ACP Mohan said the shocked housewife informed her husband, who later lodged a complaint with the security office.
Security personnel were able to identify the culprit after viewing CCTV footage and a police report was made the same day.
The man was arrested at his unit on Sunday who later admitted to the crime upon questioning.
