NUS Latest Peeping Tom Case Is The 4th Among Local Unis Since Monica Baey’s Incident

NUS Student Allegedly Filmed Female Hall-mate In The Toilet

You’d think, with the mountains of scorn heaped onto perpetrators of voyeurism, that no student would be so foolish as to film another in the toilet.

But since the Monica Baey incident, there’s been 4 reported cases of voyeurism in our local universities — 3 in Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and this latest fourth one in National University of Singapore (NUS).

According to The Straits Times, the police were alerted to the case at around 8am on Sat (11 May). A 26-year-old NUS student had allegedly filmed a female student in Raffles residential hall bathroom.


Caught by newly-installed CCTV

The student had apparently changed his attire after the filming to avoid being caught.

Unfortunately for him, a newly-installed closed-circuit television’s (CCTV) footage revealed him as the perpetrator.

Ever since the Monica Baey incident, the university has been working to enhance campus security. Among them, installing more CCTVs and upgrading toilet locks.

NUS may introduce new course to tackle problem

In addition to implementing newer security measures, NUS is also reportedly in the midst of developing a new course to educate students on respect and consent.

As for the school’s latest Peeping Tom, he will be charged in court on Monday (13 May) for criminal trespass and insulting the modesty of a woman. For these, he can receive up to a 3-month jail sentence.

According to the police, this is not the first time he has been involved in such cases.

While there continues to be peeping toms, at least the university and the police are responding more quickly and decisively. Hopefully, the added measures and the new course on respect will be enough to deter future voyeurs.
