A Malaysian National University of Singapore (NUS) graduate was sentenced to 20 weeks’ jail for taking upskirt videos of young girls. Singapore Permanent Resident (PR) Wong Jia Wei, from Butterworth Malaysia, was arrested when a shopper reported him for taking a video of the underwear of an 8-year-old girl in a shopping mall in April 2015.

The police also found at least 18 videos in his handphone of upskirt videos of young girls aged between 6 and 10 years old. According to investigations revealed in the court hearing, the pedophile has been doing so since 2012.

Deputy Public Prosecutor said: “Wong revealed that he had taken numerous upskirt videos of young Chinese girls between six and 10 years of age when he chanced upon them sitting in a manner that inadvertently exposed their panties… he has been taking upskirt videos since 2012.”

Among the places where Wong Jia Wei took videos include NTUC supermarkets, Serangoon Public Library, Ang Mo Kio Hub, Bedok Mall, and Nex shopping mall.

Wong Jia Wei was sentenced to 20 weeks’ jail today (Oct 8) after he plead guilty to 10 of the 18 charges he faced. Although this is one of Singapore’s few paedophilia criminal act, there is no canning.
