Man jailed for filming women in school loo
He hid phone under sink and secretly filmed 35 women over 2 days
He went into the staff toilet, planted his mobile phone below the sink and secretly recorded women relieving themselves.
The worst part was that the crimes were committed in a primary school.
In just two days, Jondave Ong Han Wei secretly filmed up to 35 women using the toilet.
He was eventually caught after a school employee discovered the mobile phone.
Yesterday, Ong, 25, was jailed 24 weeks for insulting the modesty of women.
Court papers said Ong was working as a school programme executive at the primary school in the western part of Singapore, under the employ of recruitment firm People Advantage.
A school programme executive's responsibilities include handling administrative work and helping to manage co-curricular activities.
On July 2 last year, Ong entered the common staff toilet on the ground floor of the school.
He planted his Samsung S5 smartphone on the sink pipe underneath the basin and used cable ties to secure it.
EVERY 10 MINUTES
He switched on the video recording function on his phone and ensured that the camera was facing the toilet bowl area.
He would return about every 10 minutes to restart the video recording function.
Court papers said he used a similar modus operandi the previous day, and secretly filmed a total of eight videos involving up to 35 unknown women over two days.
At about 6.45pm on July 2, a primary school employee, who was helping to clean up a student in the toilet, spotted Ong's mobile phone.
The staff member quickly informed the school principal, who made a police report.
Yesterday, Ong admitted to four counts of insulting the modesty of women, with four other similar charges taken into consideration for sentencing.
Ong, who was not represented, said in mitigation he was sorry for his offences, which he claimed were out of character, and pleaded for leniency.
District Judge Chay Yuen Fatt told Ong he would have passed a stiffer sentence if any of the victims had been primary school pupils.
For each charge of insulting women's modesty, Ong could have been jailed up to a year and fined.
