Man jailed for upskirt video shots

SINGAPORE: A telemarketer who took upskirt videos of women at various locations has been jailed for 18 weeks.

Jackson Ng Leong Peng, 52, who faced 11 charges, pleaded guilty to five charges of insulting the modesty of women at MRT stations, unknown locations and on MRT trains last year. The court heard yesterday that Ng had been taking upskirt pictures or video recordings of women around July last year to satisfy his sexual urges.

He targeted victims in areas such as Chinatown, Novena, Redhill and Braddell.

He would stand behind his victim on an escalator and place his mobile phone underneath her skirt to capture a video recording.

He was caught by a security officer at Novena Square 2 on Aug 16 last year.

Assistant Public Prosecutor Prakash Otharam argued that there was nothing to suggest that Ng would have stopped his disgraceful act if he had not been caught red-handed.

The places where the offences were committed were MRT trains and stations.

“The fact that Ng was able to carry out the act without fear of being caught in a public place is alarming,” he said. — The Singapore Straits Times/ Asia News Network
