A FORMER senior executive of a Japanese company who planted a pinhole camera under the sink of a handicapped toilet to film female colleagues was jailed for 10 weeks.
Shingo Yamamoto, 30, was caught after a 33-year-old woman noticed the camera drop to the floor in the restroom at the city office and called the police.
The businessman, who lost his job as a result, had pleaded guilty to two of four charges of insulting modesty.Investigations found that he had gone into the toilet at about 1pm on Jan 16 and taped the camera under the sink.
He pointed it towards the toilet bowl and switched it on. Two women used the loo before it was found.
Yamamoto’s lawyer Danny Quah said in mitigation that it was a single criminal act carried out in a momentary lapse of judgment.
He said his client had demonstrated his remorse by coming clean at the earliest opportunity. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
