Singapore student Monica Baey wants firm action from NUS after man who filmed her in hostel shower goes ‘scot-free’

After an investigation, police gave the male student a 12-month conditional warning and the university suspended him for a semester

But the victim, Monica Baey, said the punishment was insufficient and she wants real consequences for perpetrators that commit such acts

An undergraduate from Singapore’s National University of Singapore (NUS) has taken to social media to publicise a peeping Tom incident at her hostel, asking for “real change” in how authorities tackle acts that violate women.

Monica Baey, 23, a third-year communications major, said she was taking a late-night shower in her hostel bathroom last November when she saw a mobile phone peeking from below the cubicle door.

Before she could react, the phone disappeared and she heard whoever it was filming her dash out of the bathroom at NUS’ Eusoff Hall.

Baey, in a series of posts on Instagram stories that had been viewed 15,000 times as of Friday evening, said she had made a police report. The university also submitted to authorities CCTV recordings that showed a man entering the toilet that night, and the video of Baey showering that was found on the man’s phone.

it seems videoing some people in a taxi will get your  life history published in papers ... but videoing a gal in toilet is what?

 

there is much speculation about the background of the perpetrator... and how other cases were treated very differently.

like how the young student who had a police team come to school to get him over a mere allegation, he committed suicide remember..

other similar cases seem very different treatment too.

Taiwanese doctoral student jailed 2 weeks for taking upskirt video of woman at mall

SINGAPORE - While riding on an escalator at Jurong Point 2, a woman felt something brush against the bottom of her dress.

The 28-year-old turned around and saw Chen Wei Han holding a mobile phone under her dress. She grabbed his hand and with the help of a stranger got Chen, 25, to ensure the visuals he had taken were deleted.

On Wednesday (Feb 28), the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) doctoral candidate was sentenced to two weeks' jail.

The incident took place at the Jurong West Central 2 mall at 11.30pm on Nov 2.

The court heard that Chen had finished shopping at NTUC FairPrice when he spotted the victim who he found to be pretty. He decided to follow her so that he could take an upskirt video, said Deputy Public Prosecutor Lee Zu Zhao.

While she was riding down the escalator to Level 1 of the mall, he stood behind her and placed his phone under her dress while it was in video recording mode.

 
 

After the victim confronted him, Chen handed over his phone and admitted taking a video of her. He deleted it when she demanded him to do so.

Shaken, the woman sought help from a 42-year-old man and asked him to ensure that any photos or videos taken by the Taiwanese were deleted.

Chen refused to give his identity to the man and gave instead his NTU name card. He told the victim and the man that he would not do it again.

They then allowed him to leave and the police were alerted.

When Chen was interviewed by the police later, he admitted taking similar upskirt videos of five other women on different occasions in October last year to "de-stress", said DPP Lee.

No photos or videos from any of the victims were found in his phone as he had deleted them.

Chen could have been jailed for up to one year and/or fined for insulting the modesty of a woman.

Weird. The NUS hostel case and this Jurong point case had different outcomes. Seems that it's also a factor whether the alleged crime took place in public or private setting?

Wow GPGT. Glad this girl is coming forward and publicise big big against attempt to hush it up and move on. Shower video was discovered on the phone, how come the conclusion is just a warning? She should also reveal who is the male perpetrator.

Unless the victim wish to close case, NTU and police have n9 right to 'cover up' without explaining to the public the rationale for their decision. How do we know he will not commit the crime again and will the same treatment be given the others planning to commit such crime?

Seems like some context missing, but generally this should be considered a criminal, with evidence of the wrongdoing (video) there should be at least some prosecution. Not sure where the proceedings stopped, SPF or AGC.

In assault cases, even you make magistrates complaint and the magistrate ask police investigate, the police can decide no case.

 

But this case she said the officer told her take it up with school if she wanted more done... whatever the reason, it's a PR screw up for SPF.

Agreed. No covering up...especially when NTU has nothing to do with this case...or does it?

Most ppl who take these vids n photos consperm sure go jail one leh... but strangely this incident just a warning and suspension. So the furore.

 

And kudos for the victim to speak out. Perhaps shes like all of us, angry with police and school for being non chanlant on this incident
