SINGAPORE: A former Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) major was jailed for five weeks for twice taking upskirt videos of his colleague at the SCDF headquarters.

Poh Siok Peng, 45, had admitted to intruding into the privacy of the 26-year-old woman at Ubi Avenue 4 on March 4 and 9 last year.

In sentencing him, District Judge Kessler Soh agreed that there was a degree of premeditation and a custodial sentence was necessary.

The court heard that sometime in January to February last year, the victim noticed that Poh frequented her office cubicle to chat with her

He would sit in front of her and was constantly bending down while chatting as though reaching for something under her desk.

He would always sit in front of her, especially when she was wearing a dress or skirt to work.

Once, he was chatting with her when she saw a light flash from under her desk and realised that he was taking upskirt photographs using his mobile phone. — The Straits Times/Asia News Network
