Abel Tan Yew Hong’s upskirt videos

Reports said that he would follow women around and casually slip his phone under their skirts to take photos and videos.

He used escalators in several instances to take the illicit photos and videos, using his Sony Xperia phone on unsuspecting women. One of the worst-hit victims was a woman he followed up three escalators at Serangoon MRT station on Sept 5, 2019.

He was caught five days later when he was trying to do the same in Bedor MRT. A man had seen what he was doing and caught him, taking him to the police that evening.

Upon searching his phone, they found illicitly-taken photos and videos.

Why did Abel Tan Yew Hong take upskirt photos?

His defense lawyers had given several different statements in court on why Tan had resorted to taking upskirt photos and videos assiduously. One of these was that he saw media online of similar nature, and that he wanted to see the quality of such photos and videos using his own equipment, which was the Sony Xperia.

His lawyers said that he was simply trying to satisfy his curiosity on the different video and photo quality of upskirt photos. This was what he did when he followed a woman up three escalators with his phone snooping under her skirt.

“His intention was merely to experiment and to find out if his cellphone camera could take the high-quality videos he saw on the Internet.” said his lawyer.

The judge, however, said that he was very persistent in going up escalators to record women, and thus gave him eleven weeks in jail. Tan was allowed to defer his sentence, however. He was known to be out on $5,000 bail and should surrender by April 26.
