A businessman was charged yesterday with 40 counts of insulting the modesty of three female victims and one count of having uncensored films.

Lin Li Hao, 44, the managing director of a manufacturing firm, is alleged to have secretly taken videos of the victims between February 2014 and April this year, at locations such as his office premises.

He allegedly intruded on their privacy by filming them while they were in the toilet, or taking videos up their skirts.

The 41st charge accuses him of having uncensored films that he had filmed overseas.

Lin is represented by Mr Anand Nalachandran. His 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 such 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 victims named in the charges.
