A technician was jailed for 22 months on Thursday after he was found guilty of six charges of molesting and insulting the modesty of an Indonesian maid.

Ibrahim Mahamad, 51, had claimed trial to three charges each of outrage of modesty and insulting the modesty of the 24-year-old domestic worker hired by his daughter's mother-in-law.

He was convicted of the 2011 offences after an 11-day trial which was heard last year.

The offences he was convicted of included hugging and kissing the maid, squeezing her breast and buttock, and using his mobile phone to record her while she was bathing.
