SINGAPORE - A senior sales and marketing executive who recorded upskirt videos of two women in a supermarket was jailed for four weeks on Wednesday.

Leon Liang Yiwei, 25, who pleaded guilty to one of two charges, had placed his mobile phone in a shopping basket to record an unknown Caucasian woman followed by a 26-year-old woman at The Market Place in Paragon shopping centre on April 12 this year.

The court heard that he was shopping for groceries at the supermarket that evening when he saw a Caucasian woman in a green skirt and found her attractive.

He activated the video recording mode on his phone and placed it inside the shopping basket with the in-built camera lens facing upwards.

He walked close to the woman from behind and held his shopping basket underneath her skirt for about two seconds before walking away.

Ten minutes later, he spotted the 26-year-old victim in a navy coloured dress. He then recorded an upskirt video of her as well in the same manner.

He took his belongings from the shopping basket and left.

But he was stopped by a loss prevention officer who had been observing him. The police were called.

Police found an upskirt video of the victim capturing foootage of her thighs and underwear on his mobile phone.

Liang could have been jailed for up to one year and/or fined for insulting the modesty of a woman.
