M’sian doctor in Britain secretly filmed over 1,000 people

A Malaysian doctor working in Britain has pleaded guilty in a London court to secretly filming over 1,000 people without their knowledge.

He did that using hidden cameras at public places, toilets and even in his own house.

The BBC reported on Tuesday that Yeoh Lam Hoe, a hearing consultant, admitted to seven counts of voyeurism, six charges of making indecent images of a child and one of possessing extreme pornography.

He was arrested in April at the privately-run St Anthony’s Hospital in Surrey, The Star reported.

Yeoh’s 57-year old wife, Ivy Muihong Sng, had one count of voyeurism against her dropped.

The court had heard that Yeoh used cameras disguised as pen drives and watches to make recordings at different locations.

He also recorded short videos in the toilets of a Nottingham clinic, on trains and even at his own home during a social event.

Prosecutor Peter Clement said Yeoh’s crimes were discovered when he had left a recording device in a toilet block at St Anthony’s Hospital near a desk where two women were working.

Said Mr Clement: “The device fell from the position when it was recovered by one of the two ladies. Examination that day showed the device had captured and recorded one of those ladies using the lavatory. But he had inadvertently filmed himself securing that device.”
