A 34 year-old IT consultant working with the Singapore Police Force has been caught for recording footages of women in the Cotton On changing rooms. Zheng Zhongshi had mounted hidden cameras disguised as coat hooks in the fitting rooms of the Cotton On outlets in White Sands and Plaza Singapura shopping malls.
Thankfully an alert Cotton On staff spotted the cameras and reported it to the police. When Zheng returned to the store to retrieve his camera, he discovered that the cameras were gone. He then made unauthorised access to the police database to retrieve details of the missing camera.
Zheng pleaded guilty to four counts of insulting the modesty of women and six counts of unauthorised access of a computer. He could be jailed up to a year and fined for each charge of insulting the modesty of a woman and another two years and fine of up to S$5,000 for each count of unauthorised access to computer material.
