Filipino DH in HK Guilty of Taking Upskirt Video To Appeal Court Verdict

0

A Filipino domestic worker found guilty in a Hong Kong court in January of taking upskirt video of a local woman one-and-a-half years ago has filed for appeal at the High Court.

Nelson San Juan, 29, appeared on his own on June 15 before Judge Verina Bokhary after failing to secure legal assistance.

San Juan is currently out on bail which the judge has extended until further notice.

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.

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

The magistrate relied on a 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”.
