The woman also had to seek treatment and counselling for post-traumatic stress disorder, incurring more than S$15,000 in medical fees up to July this year.

She also informed investigators that she had become distrustful of those around her since the discovery of the man’s actions, and is seeking professional help with a psychotherapist. Police investigations further uncovered at least six other upskirt videos of various women that the man recorded from March 2020 to October 2022.

In addition to voyeuristic videos, the man’s electronic devices also contained 500 video files containing pornographic material, which he downloaded from online sources.
