A Malaysian man, Danny Chong Kin Nam, 34, was jailed for 4 weeks on 22 May 2017 after admitting guilt to intruding a woman’s privacy.

The pair had been sharing a flat together.

He had denied filming her when confronted in Oct last year.

It was only after forensic examination that the police found 3 videos of her in the shower.

2 videos were taken on Oct 26 and 1 on Oct 19.

On Oct 26 last year, the 20-year-old woman had entered the kitchen toilet, had removed her clothes and was washing her face when she realised a Samsung phone placed on a glass window panel above the bathroom door.

She screamed and opened the door to see if there was anyone.

She later confronted Chong if he had taken a video recording of her. He denied and offered to let her check his phone and laptop, of which no related recording was found.

She felt uneasy and reported the incident to the police on Oct 27.

His lawyer, Ravinderpal Singh, said that his client was apologetic for his actions.

In mitigation, he was undergoing debt-related stress, owing RM150,000 ($48,400) in Malaysia and RM27,927 ($9,000) in credit card debts in Singapore.

He had also lost his job in the IT sector.

Chong could have been jailed up to a year and/or fined.
