Sex videos of female SCDF officer leaked on porn sites and sex forums
Several sex videos featuring a female Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) officer were leaked online last month.
The videos allegedly stolen from her hacked phone were reportedly uploaded online by a former sexual partner. The police are investigating the incident.
Last month, a series of sex videos began circulating online on sex forums and different pornographic websites.
The videos, most of which are longer than one minute, show a female officer in SCDF uniform, her face visible, engaging in sexual acts.
SCDF details and information about the woman were also revealed online in the titles and descriptions of the videos. The woman is easily identified in some of the videos where her face is clearly seen.
In the videos, the officer is allegedly featured with different men, although their identities are unknown as their faces are not visible.
According The New Paper (TNP), an SCDF spokesperson said the female officer who is getting counselling support, lodged a report with the police.
“SCDF is aware of several private videos of a female officer posted online, but the police are “unable to comment further” while investigations are ongoing,” said the SCDF person.
At this point of time, some videos have since been removed from circulation.
Different offences come into play regarding this case, as discussed by James Ow Yong of Kalco Law.
First, the person who gained illegal access to the woman’s phone could face a charge of unauthorised access to computer material.
According to the Computer Misuse Act, the offence is punishable by a jail term of up to two years, or a fine of up to $5,000, or both.
Second, the act of sharing or circulating the videos online, which include re-posting already uploaded material, may be considered an offence under the Penal Code of transmitting an obscene video through electronic means.
According to Ow Yong, each video could count as one separate charge. When convicted in court, the perpetrators could face, per charge, jail time of up to three months, or a fine, or both.
Third, the act of sharing the woman’s personal details could also be considered an offence under laws covering harassment.
Ow Yong said that under harassment laws, if the particulars shared were “threatening, abusive or insulting, thereby causing or likely to cause the woman harassment, alarm or distress”, offenders could face a fine of up to $5,000, or a jail sentence of up to six months, or both.
