Man jailed for filming woman in shower

An accountant who filmed a co-tenant showering in a condominium toilet six times last year was jailed for 16 weeks yesterday.

Australian Shee Wee Hong, 41, who is a Singapore permanent resident, admitted to three of six charges of intruding upon the privacy of a 30-year-old Chinese national by recording a video of her while she was taking a shower in the common toilet at the Upper Changi Road condominium. At the time of the incident, he was unemployed.

The offences came to light when the woman called the police on Dec 22 last year, stating that she saw someone taking a video or photo of her.

Investigations showed that Shee had used his iPhone to record the victim bathing six times.

He could have been jailed for up to one year and fined for each charge of insulting the modesty of a woman.
