The punishment for NUS student who filmed girl in shower
On Nov. 25, 2018, at around 1:20am, National University of Singapore (NUS) undergraduate Monica Baey was taking a shower at Eusoff Hall. Little did she know, there was someone filming her while she was showering.
She said she only saw an iPhone sticking out from underneath the cubical when she tried to grab her towel.
Eventually, she managed to contact the campus security about it.
It turns out the man who filmed her is actually a friend, with the surname Lim. Baey is also friends with Lim’s girlfriend who is a Eusoff hall resident.
Lim freaked out, told his girlfriend about it and both of them wanted to meet up with Baey to explain to her what had happened and told her to drop the case after Lim apologised.
Lim claimed that he was heavily intoxicated that night. But according to the security footages that night, it showed him searching different cubicles in an entirely different block to try to find someone to film.
Lim allegedly told Baey that this was his first time doing anything like this, adding that he had been tempted to try it because of the genre of pornography he consumed (voyeurism).
After dealing with campus security about this case, she approached the police. The entire investigation took about 2 months.
This would mean that Lim would be served with a 12-month conditional stern warning.
A conditional stern warning is a warning that has a term attached to it, which means if you commit the same crime during this period (in this case a year), you will be charged not only with your second offence, but with the original crime as well.
Baey was unhappy with how the investigations turned out and the investigation officer told her that if she wanted more action to be taken, she needs to approach NUS.
According to Baey, here are the punishments NUS give Lim.
- Made him write a compulsory apology letter.
- Mandatory counselling.
- Not allowed in the dorms anymore.
- Gave him a one-semester suspension.
Baey contacted the relevant personnel after the punishment was relayed to her. She asked if that was it and they told her it was.
