Pinoy asylum seeker faces voyeurism charge

05 July 2024

The alleged peeping incident happened inside this Kwai Chung mall

A Filipino has found himself detained in jail while awaiting further investigation, after he was charged with voyeurism at West Kowloon Court.

F. Magallanes, a 34-year-old asylum seeker, was ordered remanded in jail custody by Principal Magistrate Ivy Chui to await his next hearing on Aug. 29 after the prosecution asked for an adjournment.


In the case filed by the police, Magallanes was accused of violating Section 159AAB or Section 159AAC of the Crimes Ordinance, which prescribes a penalty of up to five years’ imprisonment if a “Peeping Tom” is convicted.

The alleged offense happened last June 25 at a women’s toilet on the third floor of Kwai Chung Plaza, a mall in Kwai Chung, New Territories.


He was arrested after he allegedly “surreptitously observed” a woman identified as X while she was relieving herself and was in “circumstances that gave rise to a resonable expectation of privacy…”

Police added that he “disregarded whether the said X consented to being observed by him.”
