SINGAPORE: A youth appeared in a district court after he allegedly recorded multiple upskirt videos of his female victims in two different secondary schools he was attending at the time.

The 20-year-old Malaysian, who has since completed his education at the schools, is facing 21 counts of insulting a woman’s modesty and one count of being in possession of obscene films.

Details about the Singapore permanent resident and the schools cannot be revealed due to a gag order.

Court documents did not state if the alleged victims were students or staff of the schools.

Among his charges is one in which he is accused of using his mobile phone to record an upskirt video in the hall of a secondary school in central Singapore on Oct 26,2017.

He is said to have committed similar offences when he was a student in another secondary school in the same neighbourhood last year. He will be back in court on Dec 20.

The youth is just one of several alleged offenders who have been taken to court this year over such acts.

In an earlier case, a teenage Nanyang Technological University student allegedly used his mobile phone to record a video of a woman showering on campus on Aug 12 this year.

Chinese national Han Shiyu, 17, who was later expelled, appeared in court on Dec 2. — The Straits Times/ANN
