Pinoy in upskirt video case to appeal

04 July 2018

A Filipino domestic worker who was found guilty in January of taking an upskirt video of a local woman in a Kowloon Bay mall one and half years ago has applied for leave at the High Court to appeal his conviction.

Nelson San Juan, 29, who is out on bail pending appeal, appeared on his own on Jun 15 before Judge Verina Bokhary after failing to secure Legal Aid.

The judge, noting that San Juan had failed to include any documentary evidence in his appeal file, told the respondent prosecutor to confer with the applicant on his grounds for appeal.

Bokhary extended San Juan’s bail until further notice.

The worker was sentenced on Jan 4 by Kwun Tong Magistrate Chu Chung-keung to three weeks in jail after finding him guilty of the charge of “committing an act outraging public decency” for taking an upskirt video of an unnamed woman.

The magistrate relied on the testimony of a police officer who tailed San Juan in Megabox in Kowloon Bay on Dec 21, 2016, after seeing him suspiciously following the woman up two flights of escalators in the mall.

San Juan cited as one of his grounds for appeal the magistrate’s alleged “misunderstanding of evidence that resulted in an error in judgment”.
