A local man will learn of his fate on April 8 for taking a video of a 14-year-old girl showering, after he pleaded guilty to the offence in court on Thursday.
DPP Nurul Fitri binti Kiprawi revealed that 43-year-old local Sujairi bin Haji Salleh, a gym instructor, lives on the third floor of a fitness studio in Batu Bersurat which is designated as a staffhouse.
The victim is the daughter of the defendant’s girlfriend who lives in a room next to his.
At 1.45pm on March 24, the victim was showering at home. The defendant went to the staircase near the bathroom window and recorded a video for 15 seconds on his mobile phone.
He stopped to avoid getting caught, watched the video and then deleted it.
The defendant then waited for the victim in his car as he was about to send the victim to her grandmother’s house.
At 2.30pm, the defendant’s girlfriend confronted him after she discovered the defendant had recorded a video of her daughter showering. The girlfriend found out as she had installed an application allowing her to view still images of the video that the defendant recorded earlier.
The girlfriend filed a police report leading to the defendant’s surrender at Sengkurong Police Station.
Magistrate Dewi Norlelawati binti Haji Abdul Hamid presided over the case.
