Clarence Chan Yew Keong was also fined a total of $14,600 for having 141 films without a valid certificate and for possessing an obscene film.

Chan, 50, now unemployed, has filed a notice of appeal against his sentence, and bail of $15,000 was offered. With his head bowed throughout the proceedings, Chan pleaded guilty to six charges of intruding into the privacy of women and two under the Films Act. Six other charges were considered.

He placed the pen-camera in an organiser and put both in a basket, with the pen-camera facing upwards while in a FairPrice supermarket at Tanjong Pagar Plaza on Oct 23, 2013. A supervisor saw him place his basket underneath a victim's skirt and confronted him. Chan was later detained before the police were called.

Twelve upskirt videos were found in the pen-camera and Chan admitted he had been taking upskirt videos since December 2012 at places such as the Tangs store in Orchard Road. He uploaded them into a hard disk drive to view on his laptop.
