Singapore — A man who worked as a customer relationship officer pleaded guilty to five charges of intrusion of privacy when he filmed upskirt videos of women at MRT stations.

Low Zhi Ying (25) victimised at least five unknowing commuters at Dhoby Gaut, Outram Park, Chinatown, Jurong East, and Expo stations.

He filmed lewd footage over the span of four months since March 2018 before he was caught in the act by two other commuters at Telok Blangah station.

On June 12 last year, Low followed a woman up the escalator at Telok Blangah station. Positioning himself and pretending to tie his shoelaces, he started filming up the woman’s dress.

Another commuter, Mr Blakie Alan James, saw what Low was doing calling him out and shouted at the woman to alert her.

James and the woman confronted Low but he immediately deleted the video. With the help of James, the woman detained Low and filed a police report.

When officers arrived to investigate, they found several obscene videos and photos on Low’s iPhone including the deleted file.

Low admitted to being sexually aroused by upskirt footages.

According to a report in Today, his lawyer argues Low was diagnosed with a voyeuristic and adjustment mental disorder, but the judge stated Low’s illnesses are not linked to his offences.

Low pleaded guilty to five charges of “intruding upon his victims’ privacy with the intention to insult their modesty” for which he now faces 9 weeks of jail time./TISG
