0

A 42-year-old man, Chan Chee Kin, ex CFO of Midas Holdings, the aluminium alloy manufacturer, was sent to prison for four weeks on Monday for taking upskirt videos of women at Orchard Road on June 21, last year.

He was honoured as the best chief financial officer at the Singapore Corporate Awards in 2015. On Sept 25 this year, he pleaded guilty to two of four charges of using his mobile phone to take upskirt videos of women. Chan was at [email protected] mall when he saw one of the victims at around 1.25 pm that day. He turned on the video recording app on his mobile phone and stood behind the victim on the upriding escalator. He held his phone under the victim’s dress and took an upskirt video for 2½ minutes. He did it a total of three times.

At about 2.40pm, he was at Dhoby Ghaut MRT station when he saw another woman. He similarly stood behind her on an upriding escalator and took an upskirt video of her which lasted 52 seconds. He then followed the victim to Cold Storage supermarket at Plaza Singapura and continued filming her multiple times.

It was not known how he was identified, but he was eventually arrested that day. In both cases, Chan followed the victims to film them. For the second victim, it was more egregious as Chan had taken seven more videos of the victim after the first at the MRT escalator. A message had to be sent that Chan’s actions could not be condoned, the judge added.

Chan could have been jailed for up to one year and/or fined on each charge of insulting modesty.
