SINGAPORE — A 33-year-old woman will be charged on Thursday (Oct 14) after she allegedly uploaded videos on social media of her elderly employer taking a bath.

In a statement on Wednesday, the police said they received a report on Jan 3 this year that a woman had allegedly filmed herself bathing her employer before publishing one of the videos.

The suspect is believed to have sent the video to others as well, though the police did not specify who else may have received the videos.

The police also did not specify the nature of the woman’s employment.

For her actions, she will be charged with voyeurism with enhanced penalties and distributing intimate records with enhanced penalties, both under the Penal Code.

Those found guilty of voyeurism against a vulnerable victim could be jailed for up to four years, fined, caned or receive a combination of these punishments.

Those convicted of distributing intimate recordings of a vulnerable victim could be jailed for up to 10 years, fined, caned or receive a combination of these penalties.

“The police have zero tolerance against those who commit offences against vulnerable victims and will not hesitate to take action against offenders who do so in accordance with the law,” they said.
