Pinoy to be Deported After Serving Jail Time for Filming Housemates in Shower

One of the man’s flatmates discovered the camera while taking a shower, and immediately informed their other housemates of this discovery.

When the man was confronted by his housemates, he easily admitted to the act and tried to persuade them not to file a report, in exchange for deleting all the contents stored in the memory of the device.

However, one of their female housemates found out the following day that the files were still in the device’s memory, and have not yet been deleted by the man, as promised.

There were more than a hundred photos and videos stored in the device’s memory card.

Despite all this, the man pleaded not guilty to all the charges filed against him by his female housemates when the case was brought to the Dubai Court of First Instance last September 20.

The police, however, testified against the defendant, and revealed in court that the man had initially admitted to the crime when he was first investigated for the complaints filed against him.

The Filipino clerk was sentenced with six months imprisonment, to be followed by immediate deportation before he filed an appeal for the case.

The appellate decision can still be appealed before the Cassation Court.
