SINGAPORE - A businessman was charged on Wednesday (Oct 11) with 40 counts of insulting the modesty of women and one count of having uncensored films.

Lin Li Hao, 44, the managing director of a manufacturing company, is alleged to have taken upskirt videos between February 2014 and April 2017.

In four of the charges, the locations are unknown. One incident took place at Great World City in Kim Seng Promenade.

The 41st charge accuses him of having uncensored films which were taken overseas.

Lin's lawyer Anand Nalachandran told the court that he had made representations during investigation.

He requested a Criminal Case Management Scheme (CCMS) with the Attorney-General's Chambers where both sides will discuss matters in relation to the management of the case.

The case will be mentioned on Nov 8.

If convicted of insulting the modesty of a woman, Lin can be jailed for up to one year and/or fined per charge.

Anyone found guilty of having uncensored films can be fined not less than $100 for each film, up to a maximum of $20,000.

District Judge Kan Shuk Weng issued a gag order, prohibiting the publication of anything that will lead to the identities of the two victims named in the charges.
