SINGAPORE – In what is believed to be the first case of its kind, a man who mixed his semen into the drinking water used by his colleagues was jailed for 18 months yesterday.
Sim Keng Tee, 35, a former civilian officer at the Singapore Police Force, admitted that he committed the offences between Feb 21 and April 3, 2008.
Two women who used to work with him drank the tainted water without their knowledge.
Sim recorded them doing so with his mobile phone camera. The medium-built, bespectacled man then saved the clips onto his computer at home.
These acts of mischief only came to light after another female colleague caught him recording an underskirt video of her at their workplace on Sept 10 last year. She lodged a police report and the authorities raided his Farrer Road flat soon afterwards.
Officers seized items including hard disks and thumb drives from his home.
Following his arrest, Sim was referred by the police to the Institute of Mental Health, where he was diagnosed with voyeurism. The court heard that Sim decided to stop his treatment halfway as it required the participation of his family members.
Sim told District Judge Shaiffudin Saruwan that he did not want his parents to know of his crimes.
During sentencing, the judge said Sim’s acts of mischief were “purely reprehensible”.
Sim had pleaded guilty last week to eight counts of taking underskirt videos and two counts of mischief. Another 149 charges, mainly for taking upskirt images of women, were taken into consideration. He could have been jailed up to a year and fined for each charge.
