26YO Man Charged With Taking Upskirt & Shower Videos Of Women In Yale-NUS College

NUS has hit the news again, and this time, not for anything good either.

A 26-year-old man, Brandon Lee Bing Xiang, was charged in court for taking upskirt and shower videos on 1 Oct 2019.

What Happened

Between Aug 2017 and Mar 2019, Lee had a grand time taking voyeuristic videos at Yale-NUS college in classrooms and the shower cubicle.

He had allegedly targeted at least four women during his tenure as a voyeur.

In total, he faces 24 charges of intruding on a woman’s privacy to insult her modesty.

Three charges for filming upskirt videos and 21 charges for shower videos.

To Be Back In Court For Further Mention

Will he be charged? What kind of penalty will he be facing?

If found guilty, Lee could be jailed up to a year, fined, or both for each charge. Unfortunately, if you’re one of those who are eager to see his sentencing, you’ll have to wait for a bit.

He will be back in court on 22 Oct 2019 for further mention of the case.

Cue Netizens’ Reactions

Normally, a case like this wouldn’t warrant much attention.

Oh, another horny person. Thank u, next.

Not this time, though.

If you haven’t gotten the memo, these netizens were, of course, referring to the recent judgement passed on by the court an NUS student.

Terence Siow, The NUS Undergraduate That Got Away

Terence Siow is a 23-year-old NUS undergraduate.

He had pleaded guilty to one charge of molesting a woman on an MRT train, and two similar charges were taken into consideration during his sentencing.

And the verdict? He was slapped with 21 months’ probation.

The prosecution appealed against the verdict and asked for a 6-week jail sentence, but it was dismissed by the judge.

The judge reportedly said that Siow “had an inability to control his urges” and his acts were “minor” in the nature of intrusion.

She added that his academic results show that he will highly likely change his ways and has the “potential to excel in life”.

Cue Backlash

The victim is now paranoid about taking the train and wearing shorts in public. The public is now questioning the “apparent double-standard” being witnessed here.

Law Minister Mr Shanmugam expressed his surprise at the ruling.

The Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) disagreed with the ruling and have moved to file an appeal against the court decision.

However, he urges the public not to cast “aspersions” about the Singapore judges. Should the appeal not go through, he asks that Singaporeans accept the court’s decision.

He added that should the decision remain unchanged, and the society still feels that it shouldn’t be that way, it will be up to Parliament to change the laws and legislation.
