Muay Thai trainer filmed woman in shower

A muay thai trainer was sentenced to 10 weeks jail after pleading guilty to two counts of insulting a woman’s modesty.

Chaisim Santi, 38, had filmed the 39-year-old victim with a mobile phone while she was in the shower on Oct 13, 2016, at around 12.30am.

The accused positioned himself near the bathroom window and recorded a 20-second clip, reports The Straits Times

Three days later, he once again attempted to film the woman showering at around 2.45am.

The victim spotted a white phone sticking out from the lower corner of a window and shouted for help. 

Although the victim did not see his face, she remembered that the phone which the perpetrator had used to film her was white.

Her roommate alerted the police at 4.10am and when officers arrived, they noticed that Chaisim who was still in the vicinity, had two phones which were white.

The checked both phones but could not find any footage of the victim, and Chaisim fervently denied the act.

However, Chaisim admitted to his crimes, and said that he had deleted the clips during a later interview. 

Deputy Public Prosecutor Star Chen said:

“Both mobile phones matched the description of the phone that the victim saw in her toilet.

 “The accused denied having placed any mobile phones in the vicinity of the victim's toilet.

“He further denied having had any intention to record the victim bathing. 

“Police officers conducted a check on the accused's mobile phones, but did not find any videos or photographs of the victim."

For each count of insulting the woman's modesty, Chaisim could have been jailed for up to a year and fined.
