37 year old Bertrand Ngien Wen Tseah was found guilty of filming girls in the school’s toilet and was jailed for one year today.
The court heard that Ngien had hidden three pinhole cameras in the cubicles of the female toilet on the morning of Feb 15 which he used to record a video of a 14 year old girl using the toilet.
Later that day, he noticed the three cameras lying inside the office of the school’s operating manager. Ngien decided to get rid of the footage after realising that the cameras contained the recordings.
More shockingly, it was revealed in court that Ngien had schizophrenia, a mental illness whose symptoms usually become apparent in teenage years and is currently receiving psychiatric treatment.
It is not known if MOE is aware of Ngien’s psychiatric condition before he was employed.
