Man Who Filmed Women Showering in SG Even Has His Wife as a ‘Lookout’


Something must be wrong with this couple, right?

But first up, let’s talk about the man, Alvin Niew Chin Leng, 31 years old. He was diagnosed with a voyeuristic disorder by a psychiatrist on 19 July last year.

The voyeuristic disorder is also known as paraphilic disorders. Paraphilic refers to sexual interests, preferences, fantasies, urges, and behaviors outside the norm.

So this condition is the most appropriate to diagnose Mr. Niew because, over a span of 8 months, 23 videos of women showering or relieving themselves in toilet cubicles were taken by him.

(What’s so fun about watching someone pee anyway?)

These places include National University of Singapore (NUS), Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Sentosa, Orchid Country Club (OCC) and a community club.

Last March, on one occasion, his wife even helped him by acting as a lookout while he was filming in the toilet of NTU Hall 11 residence.


At first, he asked his wife to check if there was anyone in the toilet. After confirming that it was empty, he entered a cubicle to wait for his victim.

According to the prosecution, Mrs. Niew, 26, knew about her husband’s intention. But as reported by the prosecution, she was found to be “afraid of her husband”.

The couple, who has an infant daughter, and are currently unemployed, are undergoing divorce proceedings.

19 made victims


In total, Mr. Niew captured 19 women in compromising positions and was charged on 19 April last year. But being the sicko that he was, he went on committing similar offenses while on bail.

The prosecution, represented by Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP) Nicholas Lai, sought at least 30 weeks’ jail for Mr. Niew.

Some of us might be thinking, “30 weeks where got enough?! This kind of people should be shut in there forever!”

District Judge Kenneth Yap agrees with us.

He was “not convinced” that Mr. Niew would not be a danger to society since he had repeated those offenses time after time. The judge also described Niew’s actions as “intrusive” and “highly predatory behavior”.

So he wasn’t given 30 weeks but… 38 weeks in jail.


I know right. 38 weeks is about 9.5 months. Is it really enough to treat his disorder?

But anyhow, just a few days back on 21 February, he was sentenced to 38 weeks’ jail in the State Courts after pleading guilty to 19 charges, most of which involving the insult of the modesty of women and criminal trespasses.


He was also convicted on charges of house trespass, theft, and possessing obscene videos. Another 29 charges of a similar nature were taken into consideration for his sentencing.

As reported by Yahoo news, Mr Niew could have been jailed for up to a year and/or fined on each count for insulting the modesty of a woman.
