A former test engineer who took upskirt videos more than 200 times in the space of 10 months was sentenced to nine months' jail on Tuesday.

Be Keng Hoon, now unemployed, was offered $10,000 bail pending his appeal against sentence. The 36-year-old had pleaded guilty to five counts of intruding into the privacy of women in April and August 2012.

In all, he committed 264 such offences at public spaces like malls between October 2011 and August 2012.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Yang Ziliang said Be was at ION Orchard shopping mall on Aug 14, 2012 when he decided to record upskirt videos of women.
