"In Singapore, Joel Chew Wei Chen—a 27-year-old sales engineer—was convicted on Thursday, September 21, of one charge under the Films Act for possessing 280 explicit videos for the purpose of distribution," reports Vanessa Paige Chelvan on Channel News Asia.
The report noted: "Chew was a member of three online forums dedicated to explicit content. There, he had uploaded and traded hundreds of videos of unsuspecting women and girls caught using the toilet or in changing rooms in various states of undress."
It was revealed that "hundreds of victims were filmed using hidden cameras installed all over Singapore, in public toilets, cafes, churches, schools, offices, and changing rooms around the island."
The prosecutor explained that "while Chew did not actually make the films, he actively traded in them. Thus, he was charged and convicted. The report pointed out that "the prosecution pushed for a jail term of at least six months."
